I just found a jpg of the original cover. Not a terrific scan, but one that gives an idea.

Thanks for the music!

Great stuff.

the best part of New World compilation series was the documentation. They went FAR BEYOND liner notes; inside each gatefold LP were a few 12"x12" pages, filled with copious notes on the song, the players, and the historical significance of the composition

This was the soundtrack of WW2, very strange to the time, as Louis Armstrong said about it: Chinese music. After all is was considered a masterpiece of jazz.
Nice search and post.
