Waltzes by Johann Strauss, Jr. was released in 1956. It is an Extended Play 45 RPM 7″ record numbered CAE 158 on the Camden label. Camden was a subsidiary of RCA, and the label states Camden is “A Product of Radio Corporation of America”. The EP consists of “Du und Du”, “Wine, Woman and Song, Op. 333”, and “Southern Roses, Op. 388”. These works were performed by the Century Symphony Orchestra.

This record has only come up for auction 4 times on eBay. The Warhol Museum has one and Paul Marechal has one, so there are at least 6 of these in circulation. If anyone knows of any other copies, please let me know.

UPDATE: Another copy has come up on eBay, making the total confirmed extant copies as at least 7.

    I’m very curious as to whether there are any other Warhol Camden covers. Possibly “Stardust”, Camden CAL-316. The artist is Tex Beneke.

    I have a original record camden cae 158 on the hot pink camden label.. The record is in vg++ to near mint condition. I dont have the cover sleeve for it. What would the value be without the cover sleeve, with the record in vg++ to near mint condtion…Thanks for any information Chuck

      I’m afraid virtually all the value of this record is in the sleeve. There are only about ten known in existence, and the value comes from the artwork being Andy Warhol’s. I don’t see any auction results in Popsike.com for the record without the cover. The only way I can think of this being worth more than a few dollars, would be to a Warhol cover collector who has the sleeve, but not the record. Sorry to not have better news.
      Cheers,

        Thank you Frank,,,,,How many copies of the record itself was produced….Also, I guess I could try to sell it to a collector who only has a cover and no record or a collector who has a poor copy of the record with the cover..If you can let me know how many copies of the record itself was produced…….Thanks Chuck

      • warholcovers says:

        I’ve never seen any definitive numbers on how many were produced, but it was probably in the hundreds, I would think. No one even knew of this cover being Warhol’s work until the late 2000s, so most are probably gone for good. I would put it on eBay, and make sure you use the keyword Warhol in the title. That way it will show up on collectors’ searches. Of course, you will need to mention it’s for the record only.
        Cheers,
        Frank
