The 1960, 1962 and 1963 releases speak of the 'Ennio Morricone orchestra'.
This is supposed to be the version released on the 1960 vinyl single: mp3
The duration (3:42) listed on the 1962 LP matches nicely, but the mp3 misses the Morricone touch.
The version on the mp3 might be pre-1960…
Or the mp3 is the first of two versions released as a single in 1960. It wouldn't be the first time that a second, improved version was released shortly after. – Compare with link
