I'm catching up on the cover versions I missed.

BTW, I'm sure you already know that Waldorf Music Hall (Woolworth's US label), and that no-name direct-marketing label with the dancers on the record (that you have scanned for the post) were owned and operated by Enoch Light in New Jersey.
The same tracks (with different artists' names) would show up on Colortone, Prom, and Audition budget LPs for rack-jobbers, and on Grand Award for record stores.
The adult-oriented pop covers were almost always good, but the rock & roll tracks could be painful to listen to.

There's a guy in the UK that collects Embassy 45s (Woolworth's UK label). He's here:

I'm sure you can have some fun with those. They'll definitely round-out your collection because they cover songs on both the US & UK charts.
