Released on 78 ca Feb 1954, I assume.
I have images of the issued 78 red Co 40180 and the promotion label.
An image of Co Promotion Record 40172 (Erroll Garner) has stamped on label:
KFXM Feb 19 1954, which is pres. the date it was received at KFXM.
Maybe more info in Billboards of Jan-Mar 1954.

previously been issued.
