49th State 2

49th State Hawaii Record Co. (Hawaii) / c. 1952

back next

Design: The artwork is the same as appearing on the previous page, except that here the background is unprinted. Evidently the recording was aimed at the large segment of the Hawaiian population who were of Japanese ethnic background. The 'Tropicflex' material used for the record is probably vinyl by another name, since shellac was in extremely short supply during the war years.

History: As the previous page. Label scan courtesy of musicologist and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
