In the ballpark, but by no means the typeface shown...

Fairly close to your image is Jeff Levine's Album cover JNL http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/jnlevine/album-cover/
1959 was in the middle of the era of photo-distortion of fonts -- thinner, wider, lighter, heavier etc. -- many of which do not exist in modern digital versions. The basic design for these letter-forms is found in some 19th century wood-type Grotesk's, and in fonts such as British Inserat http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/itfmecanorma/british-inserat/ and Fred Lambert's Compacta of 1963
