Rhythm (Finland) / c. 1955

back next

Design: As the Rytmi label.

History: Obviously connected to the Rytmi label of Finland by way of the Levy Purist company. The 1954 Bill Haley rock anthem (originally titled "We're Gonna Rock Around the Clock Tonight") was recorded on the U.S. Decca label; this was evidently a later release, with the title shortened to "(We're Gonna) Rock Around the Clock." The title would be shortened even further on later recordings, to simply "Rock Around the Clock." Label scan courtesy of collector and musicologist Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
