No label, no release date. Possibly a white label for DJs.
According to, LP released by TSP, USA 2007.

Mostly devoted to the exquisite, cheesy music of Raymond Scott (1908-1994), this compilation also embarks fellow bubblegum-type pop music luminaries Dick Hyman, Alex Durbin or Johan Rudbeck, for an Electronium (and other space-age pop instruments) round-up. Actually, this come as a box-set designed to hold 2 more LPs in a series, and is limited to 300 exs.. Most tracks comes from Scott’s official releases like ‘Manhattan Research Inc.’, being music for commercials or cartoons. There is also a Pink Floyd supposedly unreleased track and a strange movie excerpt called ‘Trip’. The Electronium was an electronic instrument created by Scott in 1949. It was devoid of a keyboard and produced sounds via random sequences of tones, rhythms and timbres [+]. Another version was created in 1959, christened the Cindy Electronium. The sound quality of those tracks is amazing, to no surprise for such 1950s US recordings, and the pressing is great. So this make for a perfect DJ tool, I guess, though very enjoyable in itself.
