“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!)

Two cool Decca sleeves from South Africa in the early 60’s.   Paul Evans on one and Carl Dobkins, Jr. b/w Brenda Lee on the other!  I didn’t know Paul Evans, but discovered he recorded Midnight Special (which I knew well as a CCR song).  Brenda’s “Sweet Nuthin'” is a fave.  Check her out Here!
