Enoch Light- 18 Top Hit Tunes 184 45 RPM EP Sound-A-Like Cover Record- Last Track: Blue Suede Shoes!

 

Top Hit Tunes/18 Top Hits was one of several budget record labels of the 1950s deeply associated with Enoch Light, which issued cover versions of than-hit songs on extended play 45's and 78's. These sorts of releases tended to come in sets of three, resulting in each package containing at least a total of 18 pop tunes. Additionally, these sets often came with a "bonus selections" record of a totally unrelated back catalog compilation of tracks unified by a central theme. The selections on this record are: A1 Lipstick, Candy And Rubber Soled Shoes- Loren Becker with Enoch Light Orchestra A2 Mr. Wonderful- Dottie Evans with Enoch Light & Orchestra A3 Forever Darling- the Zig Zags with Orchestra (174A) B1 Hot Diggity- Artie Malvin and The Zig Zags B2 Flowers Mean Forgiveness- Loren Becker B3 Blue Suede Shoes- Loren Becker with the Zig Zags (175A) If you want to support this channel's ability to produce new content directly, consider becoming a patron at https://www.patreon.com/budgetvinylworld today!

4 Star Sales (Gilmar Records 872-101) - 33 1/3 RPM Compact Long Play Record


 This appears to have been a commissioned private promotional pressing, as it completely departs from Gilmar's standard output of cover versions of then-current charting hits. Tracks that are claimed by Content-ID have been removed for copyright reasons.

Jan Peerce Recital- On Varsity Records #69100- 10" 33 1/3 RPM LP Vinyl Record Album

Varsity Records was yet another label in the Oberstien fold of budget labels endlessly reissuing content mostly culled from previously released or even contemporary Royale Records albums. 

Selections from this record are:

  • A1 Jan Peerce Amour, Toujours, L'amour  
  • A2 Jan Peerce Mattinata  
  • A3 Jan Peerce Macushla  
  • A4 Jan Peerce Because  
  • B1 Jan Peerce Vesti La Giubba–From "Pagliacci"  
  • B2 Jan Peerce La Danza  
  • B3 Jan Peerce La Donna È Mobile–From "Rigoletto" 
  • B4 Jan Peerce Oh, Promise Me [Trimmed out off this video due to copyright issues. It is still included in the video mentioned below]

Just in case you feel like you have heard this set of recordings on this channel before, you are right! See (or rather hear): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHhkxbsxyaY. The sound quality of the Royale copy was better. Still, unfortunately, the first tracks on each side of the disc had many unavoidable jumps due to groove damage inflicted upon it by a previous owner or one of their associates or family.

The Savoyards- Mikado Excerpts (Royale Records)

Royale Records was king of the junk budget record labels of the 1950s. Eli Oberstien flooded the market with a seemingly endless stream of records in virtually all standard speeds and sizes for records of the period, except for 16 2/3 rpm, sadly. I find most eBay sellers think these are worth money; they are not, at least not more than a couple of dollars.

The tracklisting is as follows: A1 A Wandering Minstrel A2 Behold The Lord High Executioner A3 I Got A Little List B1 Three Little Maids From School B2 The Flowers The Bloom In The Spring B3 Tit Willow B4 Finale If you want to support this channel's ability to produce new content directly, consider becoming a patron at https://www.patreon.com/budgetvinylworld today!

The Philadelphia Orchestra- J S Bach Brandenburg Concerto No 2 In F Major (World's Greatest Music) 1938 78 RPM Records


Discogs notes: "According to "The Philadelphia Orchestra: An Annotated Discography" by Richard A. Kaplan, this release was recorded by The Philadelphia Orchestra on November 12, 1938. Credits for Concerto No. 2 include Alexander Hinsberg, violin; Saul Caston, trumpet; William Kincaid, flute; Marcel Tabuteau, oboe; Eugene Ormandy, conductor; and Charles O'Connell, producer. The only credit listed for Concerto No. 3 was Charles O'Connell, producer. I have not included these credits in the Credits fields because the label "World's Greatest Music" produced anonymous releases."
