Somewhere I read, that different matrix-numbers can be assigned to the same recording or a recording from the same date (meant for release in other countries)
OK, that's interesting. I was already wondering if something like that was happening with Olga's recording but had no documentation to make such a suggestion (but I found it difficult to believe Olga and the Orquesta Riverside recorded the same song twice in a short time). So to make progress, we'd need to find the year codes used by Puchito and Columbia Mexico (perhaps they are the same, perhaps not...), and maybe take a step back and confirm that both companies actually used year codes.
Now we're really learning some stuff, well I am anyway
Edit: yes the author of the discogs piece sometimes posts about pressing plants and label variations on the Steve Hoffman forum.
The American release has matrix-number: G2ZB-9218, so is dated 1956. (G = 1956).
I think it's actually a Mexican release, if dpanther.fiu.edu is to be believed.
