    even if the cover of “Last Date” is an original, issued by Fontana simultaneusly in the Netherlands and the U.K., collectors should know that this version is not the first one. The first original issue of this album, issued in Holland only, had a whitish cover with violet text and a blackish portrait of Dolphy. I have sen this record in the shops when Eric was still alive. After his death, the re-packaging became “Last Date”.
