If the notes of the back of this ep are correct IE Haley went over to Sweden and recorded at Sonet new vocals. It's going to sound dreadful compared to the original 1956 American Decca original of which there are naturally no multi tracks there was just the original mono master mixed and cut>>>>

Note that that original mono master tape no longer exists thanks to the Universal fire on the Hollywood backlot were the tape/masters store was for 90%+ of all the tapes acquired and owned by UMG American Decca, Dot, ABC-Paramount (Am-Par), Dunhill, a really serious major disaster for the industry and American pop history gone lost forever,

If this multi-track backing and stuff is actually true then Sonet licensed the Multi's/Stereo master from Warner Bros special markets where Hailey re-recored " (We're Gonna)" + others in 1962/3. Like the sad re-recordings Chubby Checker did of his 100% mono Parkway gems (morphed into Cameo Parkway, later made bankrupt and then very very very very dubiously acquired and filched by Alan Klein almost for free, reeks of you know who's actions to acquire Bell Records from Columbia Pictures Industries and come back as Arista, CP finally morphed into Klein's "wonderful" ABKO Industries Rolling Stones, and Beatles ca$h Cow. Checker wishing to buy and own his Parkway masters and told to go agitate gravel whilst Klein spat Coca-Cola at him probably, Checker did the next best worst thing he re-recored his tracks and now in Stereo, but as with the Warner Bros Hailey recordings the re-recordings do not sound right everything is 100% wrong with them, no care was taken to follow the originals note for note, style for style. Both Checker's and Hailey's Stereo re-recordings fail so badly due to the drums more than anything + the vocals are not as they were (these are after all older singers now the chords have stretched and mellowed)

Why would 1 hit euro single Sonet play about with multi-tracks then wipe the backing and then record a new backing and a vocal? What would the point be? Makes no sense and to me looks dodgey as The Beatles Yellow Submarie Apple EP.

Best way is to compare bit by bit all three recordings:
1. The 1956 American Decca mono original
2. the 1962/3 Warner Bros Stereo re-recordings
3. This Sweden Sonet Stereo configuration with new backing and vocals!

Give me the Oriole Embassy "Chinese Session" covers and those Hallmark "Elton John" top of the pops cover compilations especially the sleeves. If it sounds strange and odd means it prob is! Frail old man going to Sweden to record new vocals? Hmmmmmmmmm the plot thickens.
Note the use of the Philips style 1950's artwork of "EP" and "Extended Play" to imply the original vintage of the enclosed tracks.
