Sorry, I erred. Only the first two albums were 1960 releases, according to Schwann. The third (the Dimitri Smirnov) doesn't show up there until April 1961.

Those three Siena albums were 1960 releases, going by Schwann. The July 4, 1960 issue of Billboard gives the company's mailing address as P.O. Box 91, Boston 12, Massachusetts. The three albums you list are the only ones to which I can find any reference.

Would someone provide some background information

about SIENA Records, Boston based company, mid 1950's ?????

Who was founder, manager, how long were they active,

were there any releases beyond the 3 listed below ?????

What is the disposition of their masters (it appears

that the 2nd release was also issued by Unicorn , and phony 

stereo by Vox Turnabout in the 70's.) ?????
