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!)
