The Beatles, Teresa Brewer, Elvis Presley, Perry Como.... only at casey/artandcolour, lol! Each of the group of four will open up larger-than-usual when clicked.
M Y C O L L E C T I O N — A pretty diverse collection of 45RPM records from my collection. A couple of them are EPs, meaning they have more than one song per side, but most are the old 'usual' singles, with an A side and a B side. Besides these with colorful covers, I have close to one hundred additional 45s without any jackets at all. I'm not sure what happened to them, but I think a lot of them were bought with just paper sleeves protecting them, such as the Glen Campbell record above.
Many of these have an eighty-five cent price sticker on the back, and the dates of the records are mid 1950s, which means they were probably bought at the PX at the Stuttgart, Germany US Army base. Even after my Dad retired from the service in the early 1960s, we continued to shop at the closest base to us, the Submarine Base in Groton, CT. Many of my Matchbox and Corgi Toys are from that PX, and we also shopped every few weeks for food at the Commissary, an absolutely huge grocery store on base. I really loved going to the base, as foreign as it seemed to me, with everyone walking around in uniforms, saluting each other. It was very clean and neatly kept up base with modern brick buildings, and good water views which usually included a submarine or three.
I have tons of newer 33s and older 78s with very cool artwork and photographs on their covers, and I'll scan those for a future post.
N O T E : I'll be away from my computers this afternoon through evening, but I'll be [hopefully] getting some great photos for a future blog post. I'll "talk" to everyone when I'm back online!
