For El vee fans only

“Listen and Laugh No. 2”  Featuring “El Vee”   A Night at the Beverly Hills Club with Larry Vincent  Pearl Records (Kentucky)  I think Larry Vincent also owned Pearl Records.  Most of his material was released on 78’s.  Mine is signed on the back.   (“El Vee” = Larrry Vincent!)

Wrap Attack

MDS00447

A fake cardboard record inside this cool cover from “Air Express” Records.  A promotional item from Air Express (a precurser to FedX?).  Includes sales puns like “An unbroken record for fastest way shipping since 1927” and “In tune with the kind of delivery consignees expect” and “Harmonizing speed in the air with speed on the ground”  You get the idea.  But I really dig the cover!  As a frequent shipper of records myself, I could use some soothing music.
