A.R.A. 1

ARA (American Recording Artists) (U.S.A.) / 1944

back next

Design:  The shadowed, three-dimensional effect of the label name is reminiscent of movie titling of the period.

History: Thanks to collector Georg Richter of Germany for updated info: "Launched in 1944, ARA went bankrupt in 1946." Featured vocal artist Frances Langford ('The Florida Thrush') was a regular on the wartime Bob Hope radio show, and travelled with him giving shows to troops on duty overseas. She also appeared in many movies.
