Burl Ives "Wayfaring Stranger" LP 1970's

Burl Ives was a prolific collector and performer of folk songs from around the world with his professional career preceding the Second World War.
He was often labelled as the "Wayfaring Stranger" as it was his favourite theme and varied releases have been made under this title.
This LP titled "Wayfaring Stranger" issued in Australia sometime in the 1970s by Music for Pleasure was a re-release of the 1960 Hallmark HM514 LP "Return of the Wayfaring Stranger". (I think Hallmark was part-owner of Music for Pleasure).
