“The Laughing Beatnik”  Vocal by Johnny Beeman with Dave Meyers Orchestra  (c. 1960)  Silly stoned laughter, but certainly one of my favorite record labels – Doll Records (later this single was re-released on AMY Records)

Hello Matthew, Here is the cover from a very special LP.  My father bought it in the early 70’s. He used some special sounds (“filmsounds”) from this LP for the films that he made with his Super 8 camera.  I still have the record in my collection.  Hope you like it!  Regards from Oliver in Germany

Science Fiction Dance Party  POP Records (Germany)

For El vee fans only

pearl

“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!)
