Last week we discussed the role 
that American pop music is playing 
in creating better relations between 
other nations and ourselves. But 
music does many other things in the 
international picture and the cur- 
rent sensation all over the world, 
“ Volar e”, points that up exceed- 
ingly well. For here is a song which 
reached number one in America and 
yet had a completely Italian lyric, 
which most of the people who 
bought the record did not under- 
stand. What they did understand 
was the feeling involved and that is 
one of the great things that music 
can accomplish. For through the 
interchange of records, people all 
over the world learn to accept other 
peoples’ methods of expression and 
that’s a long step towards accepting 
more. 

As the recording industry keeps 
growing and growing in almost 
every corner of the globe, it be- 
comes clearer each day that hit 
records no longer remain within 
their national boundaries but many 
have the capabilities of going world- 
wide. We’re well aware that Ameri- 
can records are played over and 
over again in practically every coun- 
try in existence and certainly the 
majority of the people who hear 
them there don’t understand the 


words. Likewise now it appears pos- 
sible for foreign records to establish 
themselves as hits here in their orig- 
inal form, not through American 
copies of the song as was so often 
the case in previous years. 

Moreover this is a trend which is 
getting stronger all the time rather 
than diminishing. This is due to 
the fact that the whole world is get- 
ting smaller as the methods of com- 
munication continue to improve and 
put all people within easier reach 
of each other. A song that becomes 
popular in a foreign country no 
longer takes months or even weeks 
to reach us, for instance. Today it’s 
usually on our shores in a matter 
of days either through the enter- 
prise of music publishers, who are 
traveling more than ever now, and 
who are constantly on the lookout 
for new material, or through rec- 
ord company affiliates, which cull 
through all new records in an 
attempt to find those suitable for 
further marketing. Recorded music 
therefore is fast taking its place 
among other mediums as a means 
of cultural exchange. If the record 
business continues to grow at the 
rate it has been for the last several 
years, records may soon find them- 
selves at the top of the list in the 
field of international culture.

Disk of the Week 


‘I’LL THINK OF YOU” (2:19) [Kahl BMI — Sherman, Ballard, Jr.] 
“SWEETIE PIE” (2:03) [Melrose ASCAP— Fulton, Steele] 
McGUIRE SISTERS (Coral 62047) 

• The McGuire Sisters, always in 
top form, could have a top chart 
success in “I’ll Think Of You”. 
It’s an infectious, inviting rock and 
roll romancer with a pleasant teen- 
age lyric and an easy-to-dance-to 
rhythm. Gals blend beautifully 
Sounds like a winner. The flipside, 
“Sweetie Pie”, has the trio dancing- 
sprightly thru a colorful “Sugar- 
time” type bouncer. Upper half 
deserves many spins. 



McGUIRE SISTERS 


“THE TWO OF US” (2:00) 
[Sequence ASCAP — David, Edwards] 
GEORGE HAMILTON IV 



GEORGE HAMILTON IV 


“LUCY, LUCY” (2:12) 
[Greta BMI— Gold] 
(ABC-Paramount 9966) 

9 In the warm, winning vocal 
manner that produced such suc- 
cesses as “A Rose And A Baby 
Ruth” and “Why Don’t They Un- 
derstand”, George Hamilton hands 
in two excellent new sides on his 
latest ABC platter. “The Two Of 
Us” is a touching ballad about two 
teenagers who don’t know how to 
tell their parents that their love 
is real and not just “young love”. 
“Lucy, Lucy” is another fragile 
love tale wistfully delivered ana 
with a folk feeling by the soft 
voiced performer. Twin threat. 


“LET ME BE THE ONE TO LOVE YOU” (1:55) [Marson BMI — James] 
“I CAN’T STAY AWAY FROM YOU” (2:17) [Marson BMI — James] 
SONNY JAMES (Capitol 4066) 



SONNY JAMES 


• Sonny James is headed for pay 
dirt once again as he introduces 
a powerful new teenage rock-a- 
ballad dubbed “Let Me Be The One 
To Love You”. Strong material 
for the youngsters. Deck has a 
catchy melody, an exciting rockin’ 
backdrop, and a good lyric. Over- 
all sound reminds this listener of 
“Poor Little Fool”. And it could 
be as big. Flip has James leaning 
into a dramatic love song that 
packs a wallop. Pretty companion 
piece that could also catch on. 


“BEEP BEEP” (2:20) [H & L BMI— Claps, Cicchetti] 
“YOUR LOVE” (2:09) [H & L BMI— Claps, Cicchetti] 
PLAYMATES (Roulette 4115) 



PLAYMATES 


• One of the cutest novelties to 
hit this turn-table in months is 


“Beep Beep” a side pulled from 
the latest Playmates album (“At 
Play With The Playmates”) be- 
cause of strong dee jay reaction to 
the number. The side tells a 
humorous story about a Cadillac 
driver’s race with a little Nash 
Rambler. The tempo is slow at the 
start but really cuts along at the 
conclusion. Teeners, who are all 
car conscious, should get a charge 
out of this happy opus. Side could 
be a tremendous hit even tho some 
stations dislike playing numbers 
that mention products. Flip is a 
pretty rock-a-ballad that could also 
make it. Side also stems from 
the LP. 


IIUIIIIIIIIIIIIII1IIIIIIIIUI1M 
MARGIE RAYBURN 
(Liberty 55159) 

P, “AND HE TOLD ME A LIE” 
O'" (2:35) [Monarch ASCAP — Bag- 
dasarian] A beautiful number with 
an unusual tempo, could give Margie 
Rayburn a chart click. It’s a tearful 
romantic ballad with a heart-break- 
ing lyric and a refreshing over-all 
sound. Opening third of the side has 
Margie singing sans lyrics. Very 
effective. Change of pace merchan- 
dise that could be headed for the 
big-time. 

B “TO EACH HIS OWN” (2:05) 
[Paramount ASCAP — Livingston, 
Evans] The versatile songstress de- 
livers a soft, sweet and soothing ren- 
dition of the grand oldie. Subtle rock- 
a-ballad tempo makes it good for teen 
dancing. Potent two-sider. 

MORTY CRAFT & HIS ORCH. 

(MGM 12726) 

p “CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF” 
O'" (2:35) [Leo Feist ASCAP— Wol- 
cott] The pretty Love Theme from 
the-current hit film is lushly fashioned 
by Morty Craft’s orchestra. Rock and 
roll ballad beat in backdrop could 
make this lovely mood item a teen 
favorite. 

n, “THE GIRL I LOVE” (2:40) 
v + [Yukon ASCAP— Holmes] An 

inviting new melody is attractively set 
to a similar R & R tempo by the Craft- 
men. 


JAN AUGUST— RICHARD HAYMAN 
(Mercury 71371) 

p “CANDY CHA CHA” (2:26) 
TLeo Feist ASCAP — David, Whit- 
ney, Kramer] Two of Mercury’s top 
instrumentalists team their talents on 
a smooth, easy-to-dance-to cha cha 
arrangement of the wonderful oldie 
“Candy”. Pleasant listening. Good 
stuff for juke boxes. 

B “SONG OF LOLA” (2:22) [CPM 
BMI — Mascagni, August] The 
pianist and harmonicist blend beauti- 
fully once aeam, this time gliding 
thru a haunting mood item set to a 
soft, rhumba tempo. 

SY OLIVER & ORCH. 

(Jubilee 5343) 

p “THE MARDI GRAS MARCH” 
a8t"( 2:23) [Leo Feist ASCAP — 
Webster, Fain] Ace arranger-conduc- 
ductor Sy Oliver debuts on Jubilee 
with a refreshing march theme from 
the up-coming Fox film “Mardi Gras”. 
Exciting instrumental with a delight- 
ful dixie-flavoring in spots. Wonder- 
ful side for dee jay programming. 
Full of spirit. 

B “ONE MORE TIME” (2:21) [Sy 
Oliver BMI — Oliver] A good 
blues flavored instrumental swinger 
composed by Oliver, is fashioned in 
a most pleasant manner by the maes- 
tro. Good hip-swinging beat. 

LAURA LESLIE 
(Hanover 451 3) 

p, “LOLLIPOPS TO LIPSTICK” 
(2:03) [Peer Inter’l BMI — Rob- 
erts] Laura Leslie makes a strong 
showing on Hanover with a handsome 
rock and roll novelty. Side has a cute 
storyline and features excellent mul- 
tiple track work in the delivery. Side 
could step out. 

B “IT’S ETERNAL” (2:16) [Peer 
Inter’l BMI — Roberts] A lovely 
rock-a-ballad is belted with gusto by 
the strong-voiced canary. Emotional 
delivery could make this one a win- 
ner too. 


IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIUIIII1 

ENOCH LIGHT & 

THE LIGHT BRIGRADE 
(Grand Award 10201 

P “I WANT TO BE HAPPY CHA 
D+CHA” (2:57) [Harms ASCAP— 
Caesar, Youmans] Enoch Light and 
his men take a grand oldie and re- 
vamp with today’s popular cha cha 
beat and come off with a strong dance 
number that could catch as “Tea For 
Two” did. Organ is employed thruout 
giving the side a Pradoish flavor. 

B “CARA MIA CHA CHA” (2:19) 
[Record Songs ASCAP — Light, 
Davies] Another wonderful oldie is 
revived in the same cha cha manner. 
More good dancing and listening mer- 
chandise. 


JULIUS LA ROSA 
(Roulette 41 10) 

p .“LET NATURE TAKE ITS 
D+COURSE” (2:10) [Kahl BMI— 
Coleman] Julius La Rosa debuts un- 
der the Roulette banner with a 
“smart” new ballad set to a free 
swinging rhythm. Excellent reading 
by Julie should get a rousing recep- 
tion from dee jays. Side has the 
“Witchcraft” appeal. Class offering 
to watch. 

p . “UNTIL HE GETS A GIRL” 
O' (2:15) [Favorite-Valyr ASCAP 
- — Merrill] A warm, fragile romantic 
ballad is tenderly caressed by the 
dulcet tones of the songster. Profes- 
sional job that gets prettier with each 
new listen. 


TONI CARROLL 
(MGM 12721) 

p A“KISSIN’ CONVERSATION” 
O' [Knollwood ASCAP — Carr, Lins- 
ley] A delightful new romantic ditty 
is expertly handled by Toni Carroll. 
Side has an infectious rock-a-cha-eha 
beat and a cute lyric. Multiple track 
work by Toni is very strong. Could 
be a solid coin catcher. 

B “I LOVE YOU ENOUGH FOR 
THE TWO OF US” [Wemar BMI 
— Williams, Brandon] A touching fish- 
beat ballad is chanted with sincerity 
by the warm voiced thrush. Inviting 
number that grows on you. 


THE SPARKS 
(Arwin 1 14) 

p. “SOMETHING HAPPENED” 
O i (1:47) [Daywin BMI — Collins] 
A love-at-first-sight-and-kiss theme is 
presented in a brightly winning beat 
format by the former Decca vocalists. 
The affair has an engaging, bell-ring- 
ing joy which the kids should find 
contagious. Could really step out. 

B “ROBIN RED BREAST” (2:12) 
[Sparrow ASCAP — Comstock] 
This happy item has a pioneer folk- 
song feel, and the team brings it 
across with zest. Upper portion has 
the big-beat edge. 


THE HI-FIVES 
(Decca 30744) 

B “LONELY” (2:40) [Jason BMI 
— Dee, Brigati] This is a rhyth- 
mic, English-Italian lyric presentation 
by the harmonically inventive beat 
vocalists. The side is colorfully 
geared for teen tastes. Juke-boxes 
in Italian areas shouldn’t miss out on 
the session. 

B “WHAT’S NEW . . . WHAT’S 
NEW?” [Aldon BMI— Kolber, 
Martin] A lead voice convincingly 
reveals the sadness of his broken ro- 
mance. Dramatic beat portion for 
the youngsters.

THE TWINS — JIM AND JOHN 
(RCA Victor 7382) 

p “GEE WHIZ” (2:14) [Shapiro, 
D+ Bernstein ASCAP — Alberts] The 
phrase greatly popularized by the 
Everly Bros, in ‘‘All I Have To Do Is 
Dream” is the affectionate basis of 
this appealing beat-ballad stint bv 
the newcomers. The teen warmth 
carried over by the boys here could 
land this presentation on the charts. 
Keep an eye on it. 

B “CLASSROOM ROCK” (2:05) 
[Norma BMI — Ballard, McCul- 
lon] The songsters measure up well 
to a fx-antic rock beat. Top-half for 
big sales-deejay play. 


DOTTY FREDERICK 
(20th Fox 115) 

B “RICKY” (2:33) [Wemar BMI— 
Weiner, Berger] Thrush Federick 
warms-up to a name (Ricky Nelson?) 
beat item with convincing emotions. 
Hard-tempo sound that could receive 
attention at hops because of - title 
alone. 

“JUST WAIT” (1:50) [Wemar 
BMI — Evelyn, Smith] The artist 
emphatically socks out a reverse bit 
of psychology concerned with “even- 
ing the score” with her lover. 


THE GOOFERS 
(Port 70006) 

p . “SCOTCH ON THE ROCKS” 
D< (2:02) [Melhedd ASCAP— Weis- 
man] The zany Goofers debut on 
Port with a daffy but attractive bag- 
pipe rock and roll novelty that could 
go great guns with the teeners. Side 
is certainly different enough to make 
it. And the beat is very danceable. 
Has a catchy melody too. Watch it. 

B “THE HEAD HUNTER” (2:15) 
[Roncom ASCAP — Weisman] 
Jungle sounds and a Tarzan cry open 
this interesting, off-beat rock and 
roller. Exciting overall sound could 
make this one a winner. The beat is 
there in strength. 


DALIDA 
(Verve 10152) 

B “THE DAY THE RAINS CAME” 
(2:50) [Garland ASCAP — De- 
lanoe, Beeaud] French songstress 
Dalida hands in a lovely French lyric 
version of the current chart item rid- 
ing high via the Jane Morgan-Ray- 
mond Lefevre clicks. Pretty job. 

B “GUAGLIONE” (2:32) [Fred 
Raphael ASCAP — Fancuilli, La- 
rue] The Italian hit which Perez 
Prado fashioned into a cha cha- 
mambo hit is sung with its original 
French lyric by Dalida. Pleasant 
sound. Good conversation piece for 
jockeys. 


MILT KILPATRICK 
(Magnet 2006) 

“STARRY-EYED” (1:52) [Fair- 
w*< way & Fore-Site BMI — Stryker] 
Kilpatrick pleasantly ballad-beats a 
tune which sounds as if it has been 
updated from the past. Backing has 
elements of swing and the rock. 

C “FAME AND FORTUNE” (2:07) 
[Fairway & Fore-Site BMI — 
Haywood] Kilpatrick and ensemble 
up the tempo here on a fair item. 


GARY CROSBY 
(Verve 10153) 

p . “JUDY, JUDY” (2:03) [Plec- 
O+trum BMI — Rae, Ellis] The 
throaty-voiced Bing Crosby clan is 
working with a pretty good jumper, 
and he reacts to it with sure-handed 
teen style. The Bunny Botkin ork- 
vocal backing is colorful and cute. 
Hip Crosby dialogue at the end is 
effective. There may be important 
sales-deejay activity here. 

fi . “CHEATIN’ ON ME” (2:07) 
[Advanced ASCAP — Pollack, 
Yellin] More swing than a beat on 
this rhythmic opus. 


PAT RICHMOND 
(Vulco 1500) 

P, “HONEY BEE BABY” [Sherlyn- 
-3 ‘"Pent BMI — Sanders] The new 
Vulco label gets off to a solid start 
with a pretty romantic teenage bal- 
lad set against a most attractive 
guitar backdrop. Side has a delightful 
country-folk flavor that grows on 
you. Could be a strong one. 

p, “DON’T STOP THE ROCKIN’” 
V ' [Sherlyn-Pent BMI — Sanders] 
Richmond, with an instrumental assist 
from the Fire Balls, drives thru a 
hard hitting rocker. 


GEORGE CROMWELL 
(Glory 284) 

B 'T’LL BE THERE” (2:55) 
[Lanier-Bryden BMI — Hinkson, 
Watts, Bonner] A pretty new rock-a- 
ballad, convincingly interpreted by 
the polished, warm voice of George 
Cromwell, could give Glory a chart 
item. Pretty melody, touching lyric 
and commercial delivery. 

p . “CAN’T YOU SEE I WANT 
O+YOU” (2:35) [Lanier-Bryden 
BMI — Hinkson] Another good roek-a- 
ballad with a tearful storyline. At 
times Cromwell sounds like Tony Wil- 
liams of the Platters. 


JOHNNY RIVERS 
(Guyden 2003) 

p , “A HOLE IN THE GROUND” 
15 ' [Hill & Range BMI — Packard, 
Kosloff, Grove] The Guyden label, 
currently clicking with “Need You”, 
has another chart contender in this 
infectious lilter by Johnny Rivers. 
Simple rock and roll novelty with a 
folk flavoring. Could make the grade. 

B “YOU’RE THE ONE” [Hill & 
Range BMI — Oreal] The versatile 
Mr. Rivers offers an exciting arrange- 
ment of a good rocker. Group support 
is strong. 


GUY MITCHELL 
(Columbia 41 274) 

p . “MY HEART CRIES FOR YOU” 
O' (2:40) [Massey ASCAP — Sig- 
man, Faith] A song that Guy Mitche 1 
sent to the top some years ago is 
re-recorded by the performer this 
time with an R & R beat. And the 
resulting side is a strong one which 
today’s teeners may welcome with 
open arms. Commercial deck. 

B “UNDER A RAINBOW” (2:32) 
[Oxford ASCAP — Leeds, Weis- 
man] A contagious new lilter is hap- 
pily bounced thru by the veteran 
songster. Relaxed, country flavored 
ditty.

ROY ORBISON 



ROY ORBISON 


“SEEMS TO ME” (2:14) 

[Acu fT-RoseBMI — Bryant] 

(RCA Victor 7381) 

• Roy Orbison, a smooth voiced 
songster who proved his potential 
with a number of territorial clicks 
under the Sun Record banner, has 
a coupling with smash potential on 
his new Victor platter. “Sweet 
And Innocent” is a touching love 
song with an easy-going shuffle 
rhythm. Group backdrop is sen- 
sational and could help make this 
a smash. “Seems To Me” is an- 
other strong Bud Bryant romancer 
chanted with “Why Don’t They Un- 
derstand” tenderness. Both songs 
are perfectly tailored for Orbison’s 
country flavored voice. Take your 
pick. Both could be winners. 


“JEALOUS HEART” (2:07)

“ENCORE D’AMOUR” (2:17)

FONTANE SISTERS 
(Dot 15853) 


LES PAUL & MARY FORD 
(Columbia 41278) 



FONTANE SISTERS LES PAUL & MARY F0RD 

9 A great smash out of the past seems to be chart bound once again 
thanks to two excellent new recordings that bowed in this week. The 
song is “Jealous Heart” and is fashioned by the Fontane Sisters on 
Dot and by Les Paul & Mary Ford on Columbia. Both versions have 
been brought up to date thru the use of a solid rock and roll beat, and 
the results should meet with strong approval from the kids. The 
Fontane’s flip is a sequel to their “Chanson D’Amour” deck. The 
Columbia coupling has Les Paul driving thru a “Rebel-Rouser -like 
guitar instrumental on multiple tracks. 


“COME PRIMA” (2:44) [A.M.C. ASCAP — Panzeri, Tarcani, DiPaola] 
“COME PRIMA” (2:06) [A.M.C. ASCAP — Panzeri, Tarcani, DiPaola]

TONY DALARDO (Mercury 71327) 


“COME PRIMA” (2:25) [A.M.C. ASCAP — Panzeri, Tarcani, DiPaola] 
“AU REVOIR AGAIN” (2:30) [Ben Bloom ASCAP — Mason, Josefovits] 
POLLY BERGEN (Columbia 41275) 


• “Come Prima” could be the next smash Italian song in this country. 
It’s currently Italy’s top hit and one of the biggest records thruout 
Europe. Four excellent renditions are now available in the U.S. on 
three different records. Marino Marini’s original version is on one 
side of a Columbia disk. Soothing shuffle rhythm reading that’s just 
beautiful. The flip side of this record has the Radar Quartet offering 
a rock-a-ballad treatment. A second Columbia disk has Polly Bergen 
handing in a ton diawer performance. This could be the gal’s first 
single smash. Mercury has a powerful rendition by Tony Dalardo. 
This one has a sharply defined and very commercial R & R beat. All 
recordings are in Italian only. Watch this song. It’s definite chart 
material.

‘A HOUSE, A CAR AND A WEDDING RING” 
[Peter Maurice ASCAP — Lovdan] 

DALE HAWKINS (Checker 906) 


“MY BABE” 
[Arc BMI — Dixon] 



DALE HAWKINS 


® Dale Hawkins, who has devel- 
oped into a consistent hit maker 
with a chain of chart successes 
capped by his current best seller, 
“La Do Dada”, comes thru with 
another winning- coupling on his 
latest Checker platter. He hands 
in a beautiful ballad performance 
on “A House, A Car And A Wed- 
ding Ring”, a touching folk-fla- 
vored ballad that could go all the 
way. And he’s exciting in the beat 
department with a new interpre- 
tation of the Little Walter R & B 
smash of a few years ago, “My 
Babe”. Both could join hands to 
give Hawkins his biggest record 
to date.

[Random BMI — Knight] 

BAKER KNIGHT 



BAKER KNIGHT 


“MY HEART CRIES FOR YOU” 
(2:29) 

[Massey ASCAP — Sigman, Faith] 
(Jubilee 5342) 

• One of Jubilee’s strongest rec- 
ords in quite some time is Baker 
Knight’s coupling of “Ain’t No- 
thin’ But Love” and “My Heart 
Cries For You”. The former is a 
spirited rocker with a terrific beat 
and a catchy lyric belted with gus- 
to by the exciting performer. The 
latter is a revival of the oldie in 
today’s popular rock and roll beat. 
Strong two-sided entry to watch 
closely. 


“TOMMY, RICHARD AND HARRY” (1:45) [Champion BMI— Henry] 
“THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE AND DANSE MACABRE” (2:09) 
[Northern ASCAP — Dukas, Saint-Saens] 

THE DICK JACOBS ORCHESTRA featuring PEGGY POWERS (Coral 62048) 

endings on the “Tommy, Richard 
And Harry” side may well mean 
chart attention for the deck. Song- 
stress Powers sweetly reflects 
about three fellows she is remind- 
ed of when she hears “Stardust” 
(Tommy), ^‘Fascination” (Rich- 
ard) and “Volare” (Harry), but 
when it comes to wedding bells she 
conjures up, and here’s where the 
gimmick comes in, either Charley, 
George or Henry. (The listener 
cannot pre-select ending, it is up 
to chance). This item will keep 
the jocks busy. Watch it. On the 
flip side, the Jacobs’ ork solos in 
a swinging, “Man With The Gold- 
en Arm”-like arrangement of two 
familiar classical themes. 



DICK JACOBS 


• A triple-track engineering gim- 
mick which allows three different 


“I WISH I KNEW” (2:20) [Bourne ASCAP — Stillman, Rossi] 
“LATELY” (2:33) [Alamo ASCAP — Sigman, Faith] 

SYLVIA SYMS (Columbia 41267) 

• Sylvia Syms, a dee jay favor- 
ite, makes a most promising debut 
on Columbia with a powerful new 
love song titled “I Wish I Knew”. 
Ably accompanied by a lush rock- 
a-ballad beat instrumentation by 
Percy Faith, Sylvia lends her 
strong, vocal chords to the dra- 
matic tale of romance and comes 
up with a contender. Jockeys will 
be giving this one heavy play. Flip 
id is a sentimental love song. Watch 

Sylvia syms the top half. 



MIMI ROMAN 
(Decca 30728) 

p, “MAMA SAYS” (2:20) [Plan- 
etary ASCAP — Tepper, Ben- 
nett] How-To-Handle-Yourself-With- 
Boys advice from mama and poppa 
is the theme of this engaging vocal 
by the country-turned pop lark. Mul- 
ti-tracked by Miss Roman, the tune 
has a snappy bounce, and lyrics 
above the norm of a beat piece. Fig- 
ure lots of air-play, and good chart 
chances. 

B “THROUGH! (HOW CAN YOU 
' SAY WE’RE THROUGH)” 
(2:26) [Bregman. Vocco, & Conn 
ASCAP — McCarthy, Monaco] Ex- 
pressive rock-ballad statement from 
the artist. Vintage-sounding melody. 


KAY BROWN 
(Metro 20004) 

B “IF I HAD YOU” (2:05) [Rob- 
bins ASCAP — Shapiro, Camp- 
bell, Connelly] The songstress 
smoothly soft-beats the oldie in man- 
ner which retains much of the sen- 
timentality associated with the tune 
as a straight ballad. One of the 
“sweeter” beat revivals of an ever- 
green. 

B “I LIKE TO ROCK ’N ROLL 
SLOWLY” (2:45) [Choice AS- 
CAP — Tableporter] Another easy- 
going track for the teen market. 


BEYI WRIGHT 
(Stepheny 1831) 

B “LOST LOVE” (2:55) [South- 
ern ASCAP — Wright] Beat- 
ballad know-how is displayed by the 
chantress on an item with several 
good dramatic touches. The kids will 
enjoy dancing and listening to Miss 
Wright’s sentiments. 

B “YOU know you belong 

TO SOMEBODY ELSE” (2:25) 
[Fred Fisher ASCAP — Siras, Mo- 
naco, West] The thrush wraps-up 
the oldie with appealing wistfulness. 
The simple rhythm backing makes 
only slight mention of a beat, and 
the male group is on a straight bal- 
lad path. There’s deejay attraction 
here. 


INTERVALS 
(Apt 25019) 

p , “SIDE STREET” (2:45) [Gold 
D+Medal ASCAP — Badger, La- 
Marre, Morris] The “Kashmiri Love 
Song” makes an able transition to 
a rock-ballad here, and the vocal 
crew, solid songster out front, ef- 
fectively presents the “Heartbreak 
Hotel” format. The classic melody 
should interest the kids. Could move. 

#• “I STILL LOVE THAT MAN” 
vT (2:35) [Gold Medal ASCAP — 
Morris, LaMarre, Badger] Femme 
lead on the blues opus. 


JOHN EWING AND 
THE STREAMLINERS 
(Lark 459) 

B “TAVERN IN THE TOWN” 
(2:12) [P. D.— Arr. Callender] 

This is an inviting swing-beat ver- 
sion of the oldie by a nine-man combo 
which includes such name jazzists as 
John Ewing (trombone) ; Buddy Co- 
lette (sax) and Red Callender (bass). 
Happy rock side for the youngsters. 

“CAROLINE” [Ewing, Beal] 
Funky run-through of an origi- 
nal. Effective low-down work. 


FRITZ & JERRY 
(Rip 202) 

B “PAD” (1:50) [Lizann BMI — 
Summers, LeFros] The side is 
an earthy, all-instrumental beat 
showing which has grow-on-you pow- 
er. Though the arrangement runs a 
steady middle-beat course, the shar- 
ing of guitar and sax work offers 
good-sounding variety. Interesting 
work. 

p, “RAT RACE” (1:58) [Lizann 
V"> BMI — Summers, LeFros] Steady 
uptempo pacings which lacks the in- 
strumental variety of the top-half. 


PERCY FAITH 
(Columbia 41271) 

p , “QUIA QUIA” [Marpet ASCAP 
D ' T — Faith] Faith and the ork take 
a bright account of the current chart- 
standing of cha-cha items, and the 
result could mean list recognition. 
The affair has a fine Latin-like mel- 
ody embellished with a rich, full-ork 
cha-cha tempo. A colorful ork trick 
turned in by Faith. Side to watch. 

B “PYRAMID DANCE (HEART 
OF STONE)” (2:20) [Anker- 
ford ASCAP — Kerr, Kerr, Ford, 
Anderson] A wild, exotic production 
number from the new Broadway mu- 
sical, “Goldilocks”. 


HARVEY DAVIS 
(Cindy 3011) 

B “COME BACK BABY” [Real- 
Gone BMI — Davis, Judson] Da- 
vis does a pro job on a conventional 
rocker in which he delivers the lyrics 
in short bursts. Over-all polish of 
production gives the kids a listen- 
able entry. 

C “CALLING ALL CATS” [Mi- 
chele ASCAP — Wise. Thomas, 
Twomey] Sock rhythm calling for a 
“rockin’ rally”. 


THE EARTH BOYS 
(Capitol 4067) 

B “BARBARA ANN” (2:37) [Jay 
Tone ASCAP — Marshall] This 
laugh item is sure to get big jock 
play. Kicking off as a “sincere”, 
name-song, beat-ballad, the disk 
turns into a lead voice monologue 
about the zany gal. Funny big-beat 
spoof. 

B “SPACE GIRL” (2:56) [Jay 
Tone ASCAP — Marshall] Sim- 
ilar doings here about a weird girl 
from outer space. 


THE ROCKIN’ CHAIRS 
(Recorte 404) 

B “PLEASE MARY LOU” (2:02) 
[Beam BMI — Yellin, Bachstet- 
ter] Though the ingredients in this 
rhythmic pleader have often been 
used before, the vocalists, including 
a lead songster, do a pro job on the 
number. Deck adds-up to a listenable 
production. 

B “COME ON BABY” (2:02) 
[Beam BMI — Bachstetter. Yel- 
lin] Solid uptempo performance on 
another tune that rings a familiar 
rock ’n roll bell.

MITT MITTENS 
(Mira 110) 

B “TOY PIANO BLUES” (2:07) 
[E. H. Morris ASCAP— Coleman] 

; Mittens and combo-chorus offer a good 
beat effort highlighted by a tinkling 
toy piano-like gimmick, and a sans 
lyric ooh-wah chant' from the song- 
sters. Interesting rock sound deejays 
| may want to pass on to their listeners. 

B “FIREFLY” (2:09) [E. H. Morris 
ASCAP — Leigh, Coleman] A 
! honky-tonk instrumental view of the 
current Tony Bennett winner. The 
tune goes along well with such a 
reading. Both halves give jocks fine 
working material. 


BILY SNEL 
(Wild 100) 

B “QUEEN OF HOLLOWEEN” 
[Conley BMI — Snel] Jocks may 
want to program this beat-novelty on 
the new label as a rock tribute to 
Holloween, which arrives at the end 
of the month. Snel and his ghoul- 
sounding side-kicks kid around with 
a nice beat. 

C “ONE TOO MANY HEADS” 
[Conley BMI — Snel] A two- 
headed gal is the subject of this beat- 
swinger. 


THE JORDAN BROTHERS 
(Jamie 1112) 

» “OH LOLLY” (2:32) [Jordan- 
Dt Jamie BMI — Jordan] The kids 
have a potent rocker in this beat 
work-out in which the singing duo, 
and combo excell. Rip-snorting effect 
of the sax is a sound highlight here. 
This is a natural for hop play. 

B “SEND ME YOUR PICTURE” 
(2:18) [Jordan-Jamie BMI — Jor- 
dan] The boys display a tender way 
with a soft beat ballad. Affectionate 
tune. For warm hop moments, the 
deck has what it takes.

Miss Turzy’s tongue rolling on the 
word “pretty” when saying “pretty 
honey”. Figure some deejay atten- 
tion to the bright session.

CLIFF THOMAS (Phillips 3531) 


B “LONELY ME” (2:07) [Forster 
ASCAP — Flick, Trace, Ballen-

rock 'n roll touch here. 


DART WARD 
(Dot 15842) 

B “Q-T-CUTE” (2:22) [Maryjune 
BMI — Hunter, Marotta, Mack] 
Though the disk on the whole sticks 
close to the well-plied conventions 
of R & R sessions, Ward has a good 
way with teen material, and lots of 
kids will find the production a wel- 
come rock ’n roll addition. Should 
go over well at jockey hops. 

p “MISERY”’ (2:14) [Maryjune 
w ■ BMI — Hunter, Marotta, Mack] A 
slow-beat affair, whose lyrics are 
somewhat folkish. Rhythmic half is 
more commercial. 


GRIZ GREEN 
(Mercury 71 363) 

B “BE HAPPY” (2:00) [Hood BMI 
— Green] The Green combo-vocal- 
ists offer a sort of community song- 
like session on a merry tune with a 
happy philosophy. Featured instru- 
ment seems to be an organ-grinder. 
Deejays may want to kick-off shows 
with this. 

n “MOROCCO” (1:47) [Hood BMI 
w"*" — Green] Sounds of a Middle 
Eastern flavor here. Novelty bit: a 
voice that says “Morocco!” now and 
then, and says near the disk’s end, 
“Come with me to the Casbah!” 


• The strongest release to come from the Phillips label since Bill 
Justis’ “Raunchy” is “Sorry I Lied”. Starring vocalist Cliff Thomas, 
the side is a solid rocker with a good teenage love lyric set against 
a gospel type backdrop. The overall effect is just thrilling and should 
give Thomas a big money-maker. The revival sound arrests the listener. 
Flip is another spirited rocker. 


“BILLY BAYOU” (2:02) “I’D LIKE TO BE” (2:00)

KEITH COURVALE 
(Dot 15844) 

B “TRAPPED LOVE” (2:05) [Ron- 
del BMI — Testa] Courvale and 
accompaniment go about their rock 
’n roll way with enough solid beat 
moments to keep the kids interested. 
Taking a middle-tempo course, the 
production has a nice clicking sound 
throughout. 

n, “STEELWORKER BLUES” 
b-r (2:03) [Rondel BMI — Vincent] 
Blues-beat wailer about a steelworker. 
Combo clink sounds reflect a pound- 
ing hammer. 


THE CHAS. McDEVITT GROUP 
WITH SHIRLEY DOUGLAS 

(Kopp 238) 

B “REAL LOVE” (2:25) [Walden 
ASCAP — Darin, Harris] The 
English skiffle group (it backed 
Nancey Whiskey on the “Freight 
Train” click) and thrush Douglas 
work an appealing romancer with 
excellent ballad-beat touches. Mc- 
Devitt’s crew forgoes a skiffle sound 
for rock ’n roll pacings. 

“STACK-O-LEE” (2:35) McDe- 
vitt returns to the skiffle sound 
in a lively combo-male vocal per- 
formance. Top portion is the more 
commercial entry. 



THOMAS WAYNE 
(Fernwood 109) 

B “SATURDAY DATE” (1:35) 
[DeCapo BMI — Burch, Nelson] 
This buoyant rock opus has an in- 
gratiating way. Wayne sings about 
the things he and his gal can do 
Saturday night with the silver dollar 
he has just found, while an inviting 
femme chorus plays the role of the 
gal. Contagious sound. 

p “TRAGEDY” (2:05) [Bluff City 
V-r BMI — Burch, Nelson] Heavy 
song of regret from Wayne. He 
really makes himself part of* the plot. 


THE INTERNATIONALS 
(ABC-Paramount 9964) 

B “I LOVE YOU SO” (1:55) [Pam- 
co BMI — Cosentino, Muneno, Her- 
rera, Domingo] The boys blend 
brightly, if in familiar fashion, to a 
beat sizzler. There’s much here, combo 
work included, to keep the kids happy 
at hops. Polished cut all-around. 

p, “GOING TO A PARTY” (1:51) 
V"f" [Pamco BMI — Cosentino, Mun- 
eno, Herrera, Domingo] Typical go- 
ing-to-the-party beat joviality. 


CASUALTEENS 
(Felsted 8529) 

B “SHE’S SWINGING” (2:07) [Ex- 
cellerec BMI — Cason] Here’s an 
effort that has big beat showmanship 
on both vocal and instrumental counts. 
The songsters, male in the front, 
femmes in the background (and in- 
vitingly so) knock-out a light-hearted 
tribute to a teener, and the combo 
maintains a steady, hard-beat way. 
Worthwhile spin deck. 

“NEED YOU SO” (2:36) [Buna 
BMI — Dee] In an emotional beat 
stanza, the vocal arrangement of the 
team mentioned above works out very 
well again. Tune could be stronger. 


ERNIE FELICE 
(RCA Victor 7371) 

B “SUZANNE” (2:29) [Dena AS- 
CAP — Duning, Fine] A delicate 
waltzer from the Danny Kaye “Me 
And The Colonel” pic success is af- 
fectionately sung by legit-voiced 
Felice. Appealing ballad track. 

B “SUZZANE” (2:17) [Dena AS- 
CAP — Duning] A lush sound- 
track reading of the melody from 
composer Duning and the ork. Fine 
mood material. 


BILLY BRANDO 
(Wizz 712) 

B “MAGIC RECORD” (2:45) [Mu- 
sic Maestros BMI — Brando] Side 
is a calypso-ish, good-sounding stint 
by Brando. Brando recites the effects 
of a “magic record” on couples who 
hear it. Interesting flute opener. 
Different platter. Could make noise. 

“GOT BUTTERFLIES” (2:16)

B “THIS IN - BETWEEN AGE” 
(2:15) [Clockus BMI — Sullivan,

aspects wherein the vocal team whips 
up a number of too-young-for-this-

teen sound is good. Worth deejay at- 
tention.

Strong rockabilly flavor from the kids

Ken Rowland ( WKLO-Louisville, Ky.) relates that the new Peggy Lee 
waxing, “Sweetheart” for Capitol, sounds much like “Fever”. However, 
Rowland feels that the flip side “Light Of My Love” will be the side that’s 
really going to move. . . . Len Ross (KDB-Santa Barbara, Calif.) jumps on 
the band wagon for Artie Wayne’s latest effort 
“Ooooh! You Said The Magic Word” on the Epic 
label. Ross says the platter “is heading straight for 
hitsville.” . . . Joe O’Brien (WMCA-New York City) 
is hosting a new stint titled “Joe’s Place”. Heard 
Monday through Friday 7 to 8 p.m., and from 10:30 
to midnight the program is said to “swing.” . . . Bill 
“Hoss” Allen (WLAC-Nashville, Tenn.) stopped over 
in Chicago to visit with manufacturers and distribs 
last week en route to the R&B disk jockey meet in 
Detroit. . . . Alan Fredricks (WHO-New York City) 
reports that he has instituted a new feature on his 
“Night Train” program. Audience reaction to his 
nightly playing of old favorites has been so tre- 
mendous that he now has to set aside the entire 
Saturday , night show to the playing of old favorites. All record companies 
are requested to supply him with back numbers of the old rock and roll 
hits. . . . Jerry Marshall (WMGM-New York City) spotlighted “The Immortal 
A1 Jolson” album as “album of the day” on his pro- 
gram Thursday, October 23rd, as a salute to the 
eighth anniversary of Jolson’s passing. The album 
was also played at least once each hour throughout 
the day on all other disk jockey shows on the station. 
. . . Joe Yocam (KFWB-Hollywood, Calif.) is con- 
cerned that the deejay is slowly being pushed out 
of the picture. On the Kingston Trio’s version of 
“Tom Dooley” and also on the station’s current num- 
ber one record, “Topsy II”, done by Cozy Cole, the 
artist introduces the tune himself. . . . Bob Crane 
(KNX-Los Angeles, Calif.) has added another 40 
minutes to his radio time. Crane, now heard from 
6 to 8:40 a.m. Mon. through Fri., and 6 to 9:30 on 
Sat., will also be heard from 4:15 to 4:55 Mon. 



BOB CRANE

through Fri. 


Bob Furry (KTAR-Phoenix, Ariz.) reports that Lee Palmer, ABC Para- 
mount’s west coast division, was in town recently 
and gave him a preview of the new Eydie Gorme 
album, soon to be released. Furry says the LP should 
be a smash hit. . . . Bob Ellis (KOY-Phoenix, Ariz.) 
tells about the huge premier recently to kick off on 
a national scale, the new recording of the theme of * 
the TV series “26 Men”. In attendance at the gala 
affair were the stars of “26 Men” newspaper represen- 
tatives, TV personalities, and of course, the men who 
hope to get the job done, local disk jockeys. The new 
release is on the Kem label, and is a multiple record- 
ing made by Hal Hopper, who also wrote the music 
for the song. . . . George Fraser (CKCY-Sault Ste. 
Marie, Ontario) sends out the SOS for 8 x 10 glossy 
photos of recording artists for his new record bar. 
The deejay sends his appreciation to all who can help. . . . Jerry Lee (KTRN- 
Wichita Falls, Texas) tells us there’s a record going wild in Texas. The 
tip is on the Kingston Trio’s “Tom Dooley”. Lee says that on a recent 600 
mile trip to south Texas he heard “Tom Dooley” on almost every radio station 
and juke box along the way. . . . Congrats to Jack McDermott ( WHIL-Boston- 
Medford, Mass.) and spouse. The deejay and his wife celebrated their anni- 
versary Oct. 9th. . . . Tom Edwards (WERE-Cleveland, Ohio) tells in his 
newsletter of the many phone calls of the week including Morty Wax calling 
about “Jerrilee” and “There’ll Be No Goodby’s.”

EPIC— THE FIRST FIVE YEARS 

by Al Schulman, General Manager 



This is EPIC’s fifth and swinging- 
est year. A huskier five-year-old you 
never saw or heard! Ep:c label with 
the finest pedigree — a product of the 
Columbia Broadcasting System and 
Columbia Records. At the same time 
Epic is completely independent in 
ideas, approach and distribution. 

In five years Epic has built a com- 
plete catalog of both classical and 
popular album material as well as 
single records nearly 400 albums and 
all of them selling. We’ve produced 


important classical repertoire with 
the finest European and American 
artists. Epic has brought adventurous 
new ideas to the popular album field 
as well. Lester Lanin’s now famous 
albums brought dance music and the 
Epic label to new sales heights. Roy 
Hamilton, the Merrill Staton Choir, 
Something Smith and the Redheads, 
Sal Mineo, have further proved 
Epic’s magnificent turnover potential. 

With this rich catalog Epic has 
proved an important point in the 
highly competitive record field — an in- 
dependent distributor can merchan- 
dise a complete record catalog, build- 
ing both a stronger sales base for 
himself and for such label. We are 
grateful to our distributors, their 
salesmen and promotion men for then- 
loyalty, devotion and tremendous 
effort. 

Further proof of their faith in 
Epic is the fact that most of the dis- 
tributors who helped us launch our 
label five yeax-s ago are still with us 
today. 

To eveiyone who has woiked with 
us, we say thanks — and wait for our 
sixth year! 


FOUR-COLOR HITS 

by Jim Foglesong, Director 
Popular Albums A&R 



When Epic began producing al- 
bums, we used to spend literally 
hours deciding whether to let the Art 
Department use two, thi-ee or four 
colors for the covex-s. Only a master- 
piece would get three colors. Since 
then we’ve built a highly successful 
catalog with hit albums — and every- 
thing is four colors. 

From the beginning, however, Epic 
produced adventux-ous repertoire, 
moving into new dix-ections that have 
since been followed by many other 
labels. Among our fix-st album re- ! 
leases were Neal Hefti’s “Singing In- 
strumentals,” “Wild Bill Davis at 
Birdland.” Roy Hamilton’s “You’ll 
Never Walk Alone,” “Now Every- 
body Sing” with Somethin’ Smith and 
the Redheads, and an “Epic in Jazz” 
series of reissues featuring the great 
releases of Lester Young, Bunny Beri- 
gan, Johnny Hodges, Bobby Hackett, 
and others. These are still basic al- 
bums for record collectors — they still 
move out in quantity, month after 
month. 

But nothing establishes a line like 
a hit. After a year and a half of 
struggling, we came up with our first 
national best seller, LN 3238. “Gen- 
tlemen, Be Seated!” (Since “Gentle- 
men,” at least four A&R men have 
confided in me that they had always 
wanted to do a minstx-el album but 
just never got around to it.) 

Epic from the beginning has worked 
to produce a well-balanced, ungim- 
micked high fidelity sound while using 
the most modern and finest equipment 
available. We believe that no label 
px-oduced a finer record in a given 
category — soundwise or musically. 
Judging fx-om the record of the past 
five years, a lot of customers seem to 
think we’re right. 


MERCHANDISING THE 
COMPLETE LABEL 

by W. Walter Hayum 



We at Epic have found that there 
is a direct advantage to a conxplete 
record label such as ours for both the 
distributor and us. The distributor 
through Epic classics now has access 
to many accounts which normally had 
no need for much of the xxxaterial he 
ox-iginally carried. We in turn bene- 
fit by the high proportion of single 
hits our distributox-s carry at all 
times and the heavy distributor-dealer 
tiaffic thus created. 

Both our pop albums and single rec- 
ords benefit by the up-to-the-minute 
trends which come to us through the 
top-notch promotion men enxployed by 
our distributors. Again that spirit of 
independent distribution is one of 
urgency and fast action that is diffi- 
cult to duplicate through branch or 
one-label distribution. 

We now find salesmen who were 
once terrified at the thought of having 
to call on a key-classical or album ac- 
count, genuinely delighted with their 
task. They have learned that their 
major label competitors have never 
filled the first chair of a major sym- 
phony orchestra either. As a result 
they now get a kick out of selling 
classics. 

We feel very strongly that all 
record products, popular singles, 
classics and popular albums can bene- 
fit from a fiesh, aggressive and inde- 
pendent outlook. We maintain an in- 
quisitive intei'est in our distributors’ 
activities, suggestions and criticisms 
for the purpose of shaping a con • 
stantly growing label with major 
status based on independent distribu- 
tion. 

And let’s not forget the tremendous 
job done by Epic’s field men: Gene 
Brewer, West Coast Sales Manager; 
Bob King, Midwest Sales Manager; 
axxd Jay Kyle. Southeast Sales Mana- 
ger. Without these men, the opera- 
tion couldn’t be successful. 


A&R: ARTISTRY AND RESPONSIBILITY? 

by Joe Sherman, Director of A&R 
Popular Division, Epic And Okeh Records 



In this day of the so-called “rock 
and roll beat” generation, does “good” 
music always finish last ? Epic Rec- 
ords doesn’t think so. We believe it’s 
worthwhile to experiment with a few 
trial balloons, a few well-recorded, 
well-produced, well-written songs, and 
we’ve been right. When supplied with 
high caliber material such as “You’ll 
Never Walk Alone,” “Unchained Mel- 
ody,” “It’s Not For Me To Say,” 
“Everybody Loves A Lover,” “It’s 
All In The Game,” there was sufficient 
demand from our record buyers to 
make these hit l-ecords. 


As Dix-ector of Epic’s Popular A & 
R division, it is my hopeful plan to 
continue sending up a few more of 
these trial balloons. After all, this is 
still the Music business. With a little 
industry, we can still sell good music. 
Why blame everything on the “beat” 
generation when practically every- 
thing they are supplied with has noth- 
ing but a beat? 

Certainly “Rock and Roll” has a de- 
served place in our musical culture 
and our business. But also consider 
that duxing its comparatively young 
existence, Epic has prospered both in 
sales and in px-estige because of its 
quality catalog of musical pioneei's. 
Albums such as “Gentlemen Be 
Seated,” the Lester Lanin LP’s, the 
Roy Hamilton albums including his 
curx-ent hit “With All My Love,” the 
Merrill Staton Choir; and singles 
such as “You’ll Never Walk Alone” 
and “Ebb Tide” by Roy Hamilton, 
The Four Coins’ “Shangri-la,” “It’s 
A Sin To Tell A Lie” by Somethin’ 
Smith and the Redheads, etc. prove 
conclusively that “nice guys” and 
“nice music” can win. 

May the next five years be as Epic 
as the first!! 


EPIC’S CLASSICS 

by Charlie Schicke, Director of Classical A&R, Epic. 



When Epic entered the classical 
business five years ago, all of the 
standard classical repertory of the 
“warhorse” variety had already been 
recorded many times over by ranking 
artists and orchestras. The high fidel- 
ity boom was in full gear. Epic, we 
knew, had a very competitive row to 
hoe. 

One facet became patently clear 
after our first twenty or so albums 
reached the dealer's’ shelves, the crit- 
ics’ desks and a number of adven- 
turesome record collectors’ homes: 
the one feature all of our initial al- 
bums held in common was their su- 
peiior i-ecorded sound. 

Expansion came rapidly. The emi- 
nent permanent conductor of the Con- 


certgebouw Orchestra, Eduard Van 
Beinum, became an exclusive Epic 
ai'tist. His highly successful Ameri- 
can tour in 1955 with the Concei'tge- 
bouw left thousands of fanatical fans 
in its wake. Arthur Gnixniaux, the 
fine young violin virtuoso, became an 
Epic regular. Our domestic recording 
program soon got under way with 
the signing of the brilliant Cleveland 
Orchestra and its world renowned 
conductor, George Szell, a man who 
really knows his way around an or- 
chestra; so well, in fact, that all of 
our hopes for Cleveland were realized 
in the triumphant success both Szell 
and Cleveland have ~njoyed on tours 
in both Europe and America. 

Critics in New York, Philadelphia, 
London, Paris, etc., have acclaimed 
the orchestra as one of the world’s 
greatest. Other invaluable additions 
to Epic’s artists roster were the 
highly talented young American pi- 
anist, Leon Fleisher (the first Amer- 
ican to win the coveted Queen Eliza- 
beth of Belgium prize, formerly won 
by such luminaries as Oistrakh, Gil- 
els & Co.), the superb Italian cham- 
ber orchestra, I Musici, and classical 
guitarist, Rey de la Torre. Clara 
Haskill broadened her American fol- 
lowing considerably by her sensation- 
al American concert appearances two 
seasons ago. 

Now that we aie well along in the 
race and drawing closer to the lead- 
ers. we have learned that getting 
off to a late start was no handicap 
at all.

BILL GERSH 

RETIRES 


Other Officers Named are 
Norman Orleck, V.P. and Secy.;

Serve on Board of Directors 


Consents to Act as Consultant 


NEW YORK — After thirty years of active service to the industry, the 
last sixteen with The Cash Box, which he founded June 1942, Bill Gersh 
stunned a gathering of close friends at the Savoy Hilton Hotel, this city, this 
past week, with the announcement of his retirement. 

He has consented to act as consultant to this publication. It is well known 
thruout the industry, these past years especially, that more and more of his 
time has been taken up in consultations with firms in all divisions of the 
trade internationally. 

He is one of the best known men in the industry. He has traveled the 
world, meeting various leaders and has become acquainted with almost all 
firms in the trade. His acquaintanceship is reputed to be among the largest 
of any single person in all the history of the industry. 

Though he will be available to act as consultant to this publication he may 
also be engaged in this same capacity for others requiring his wide knowledge 
and long experience in the industry. 

Gersh hasn’t announced any immediate plans other than he will spend the 
winter in Florida’s sunny clime.

Gene Autry Sells Challenge Records To 
Joe Johnson And John Thompson 


HOLLYWOOD — Gene Autry has 
sold Challenge Records, along with 
its subsidiary company, Jackpot Rec- 
ords, to Joe Johnson and John Thomp- 
son, who have sei’ved as A & R repre- 
sentative and sales manager, respec- 
tively, since the companies were 
formed in March of 1957. The new 
owners will continue to function in the 
same capacities. 

“The opei'ation has been a highly 
successful one,” Autry said in an- 
nouncing the sale, “but because of 


other business interests, it seemed 
advisable that I dispose of it.” 

The sale involved the contracts of 
all recording talent, including the 
Champs, whose hit record, “Tequila,” 
was one of the company’s biggest 
sellers. 

The companies will continue to 
opei’ate in the Autiy building at 6920 
Sunset Blvd., Hollywood, which re- 
cently was equipped with the latest 
sound recording facilities.

“The New Musical Express” Popu- 
larity Poll brought some interesting- 
results. The American Outstanding 
Personality singer was Mr. Presley, 
closely followed by Pat Boone. Top 
female singer was Connie Francis, and 
the Everly Brothers took the honors 
for the best vocal group. 

British names topping each category 
were as follows: Outstanding Vocal 
Personality, Frankie Vaughn; Female 
Favourite, Alma Cogan; Top Vocal 
Group, The Mudlarks; Top Band, Ted 
Heath; and the Small Group honors 
went to Lonnie Donegan. 

Jack Jackson and Pete Murray tied 
for first place in the Favourite Disk 
Jockey Poll. 

“The New Musical Express” will, as 
usual, present a concert featuring all 
the winners at the Albert Hall on Sun- 
day afternoon, January 11th. 

The Kalin Twins are to make an 
appearance for the Musicorama pro- 
gramme on Europe No. 1. 

The Rank Organisation, busy look- 
ing for personnel for its record .divi- 
sion, is anxiously trying to find an 
A and R man. 

On a visit with his family is Harry 
Belafonte, staying at the Savoy Hotel. 

. . . Also there is Kay Thompson, who 
came to launch her book, “Eloise”, and 
appear on television. . . . Ethel Smith 
hopped over from Paris on the way 
back from Brussels to guest on the 
Sunday night TV show on Channel 9. 
... On the same show were the Barry 
Sisters. 

The Marino Marini Quartet guested 
on the Saturday Spectacular and sang 
their hit record, “Come Prima”. The 
boys also did a recording session last- 
ing till the early hours of the morning 
before returning to Italy for further 
engagements. 

The B.B.C. gave us the first of the 
telecast George Gobel Shows. This one 
starred Keely Smith and Jim Backus. 
The B.B.C. now seems to have some 
of the biggest American TV Shows on 
film. They include The Como Show, 
The Steve Allen Show, The Phil Sil- 
vers Show and The Burns and Allen 
Show. 

Jack Scott’s waxing of “My True 
Love” is now climbing our charts. 
This was a slow starter but may be 
a stayer. 

Johnny Mathis high on our best- 
selling charts with “A Certain Smile”, 
may finally establish himself as a 
favourite over here. 

Eddie Constantine is over here film- 
ing and has recorded four sides for 
the Barclay label. One of the great 
songs in France and one which is 
worth watching is “La Foule.”

Warner Bros. Adds 3 To Roster 


BURBANK, CALIF.— The signing 
of three new artists to the talent 
roster of Warner Bros. Records was 
announced last week by James B. 
Conkling, prexy of the diskery, and 
George Avakian, the firm’s director 
of a&r in New York. Signed to term 
contracts were ventriloquist Rickie 
Layne (and his dummy Velvel), 
pianist George Greely, and rock ’n 
roll singer Johnny Sardo. 

Layne gained fame approximately 
three years ago through his appear- 
ances on the Ed Sullivan TV’er, and 
has since been playing night clubs 
and theatres throughout the country. 
Negotiations were concluded between 
Abner Greshler, representing Layne, 
and Conkling. Layne is currently in 
the third week of a six-week nation- 
wide tour, with dates in San Fran- 
cisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Kansas 
City, St. Louis, Milwaukee, New York 
and Chicago.

Greeley, a pianist, conductor, com-

associated with Columbia Pictures in 
that firm’s music department. Prior 
to that he was musical director at 
Capitol Records, and was responsible

among others. He most recently com- 
pleted a tour of South America, serv- 
ing as conductor of the Symphony

Seventeen year old Sardo was dis- 
covered by Avakian when the singer 
sought advice about a recording- 
career. The artist’s first Warner 
Bros, release, “I Wanna Rock” b/w 
“Used Heart” was issued last week. 
Sardo writes most of his own mate-

Offbeat Waxes Revue 



NEW YORK — Offbeat Records has 
recorded another night club revue, 
! “Demi-Dozen,” sponsored by Julius 
| Monk at his new Upstairs At the 
j Downstairs nitery in New York. Last 
j year, Offbeat cut Monk’s “Take Five” 
revue at the club. 

Recording- of “Demi-Dozen” took 
I place the week of October 12, with Ab- 
I bott Lutz as the producer of the al- 
I bum. In an endeavor to get the full 
flavor of both the revue and the room 
in which the revue is played twice 
I nightly, the actual recording was cut 
during the performance. Fifteen of 
the revue’s twenty numbers will be 
included, both musical and sketches, 
and featuring the entire cast of six — 
Jean Arnold, Ceil Cabot, Jane Con- 
nell, Jack Fletcher, George Hall and 
Gerry Matthews. An Edwardian- 
styled album cover has been designed 
by Ed Wittstein who is also respon- 
sible for the stage setting of the Up- 
stairs At the Downstairs, and last 
year designed the sets for NBC’s tele- 
vised Opera Theatre. 

Founded in 1958 by Robert Bialek, 
a Washington record shop owner, and 
William Lerner, a New York retailer, 
the diskery includes in its catalogue, 
“Try a Little Tenderness,” by new 
singer Walter Skees (a group of 
standards), an album by the new jazz 
guitarist Charlie Byrd, and a collec- 
tion of original material “Songs To 
Make You Think,” by satirist Paul 
Winters. The firm also issues a classi- 
cal line under the label of Washing- 
ton Records. 


Fox Activates New Firms In Europe 


NEW YORK— Fred Fox, Sam Fox 
Publishing Company’s vice-president, 
has recently returned from the second 
of two European business trips. These 
trips have activated new companies 
which will represent not only the Sam 
Fox catalogue, but all its affiliated 
organizations — Movietone Music, Hol- 
lywood Songs, Choral Art Publica- 
tions, Reynard Publishing and Star- 
gen Music. 

Fox stated that his trips were made 
not only in behalf of his own firm and 
its affilated organizations, but also as 
a representative of the Music Pub- 
lishers’ Association in which he is 
Chairman of the International Com- 
mitee. Members of this committee in- 
clude two distinguished represent- 
atives of the music publishing indus- 
try, David Adams of Boosey and 
Hawkes and Franco Colombo of Ri- 
cordi. 

The highlight of Fox's report to 
M.P.A. stressed to publishers who are 
in all phases of the music industry, 
the desirability of setting up sepa- 
rate operations in three distinct areas 
of the music business, namely: Popu- 
lar, Symphonic - Educational, and 
Background Tape Libraries. 

After investigation, Fox found it 
advisable, in connection with his firm’s 
European operations, to make Lon- 
don the base for supervision of all 
local representatives on the Euro- 
pean continent. This past year, Fox 
has established a new English com- 
pany devoted to the distribution of 
music background tapes in the British 
Isles and European continent. This 
new venture, Synchro Recorded Mu- 
sic Library, Ltd., is under the direc- 
tion of Dennis Berry, formerly con- 
nected with Paxton’s in London. New 
standard and popular companies are 


now being established along with Syn- 
chro, under the over-all supervision of 
Allan Crawford. In addition to the 
above activities, Fox is preparing rep- 
resentation of other American cata- 
logues in the three areas for England 
and the Continent. 

Jamie-Guyden Hot 

PHILADELPHIA— Harry Finfer, 
prexy of Jamie, and Guyden Records 
and Universal Distributing, reported 
last week that reaction to Duane Ed- 
dy’s new release, “Cannonball,” has 
kicked-off at a faster sales pace than 
Eddy’s two previous winners, “Rebel- 
Rouser” and “Ramrod.” The deck was 
recently aired on the Dick Clark Show 
only 2 days after the session, and, ac- 
cording to Finfer, heavy reaction was 
almost immediate. Finfer also an- 
nounced the bolstering of the Jamie 
roster with Connie Conway, the 
Sharps, Sanford Clark, the Jordan 
Brothers, and the Five Chords. 

Finfer, a 14-year veteran of the 
music business, was associated with 
Gotham Records for 8 years as sales 
manager, and formed Universal Dis- 
tributing three years ago. Jamie Rec- 
ords was formed a year ago, and 
shortly thereafter the label had chart 
material with Eddy’s “Rebel-Rouser” 
and “Ramrod.” 

About three months ago, Finfer re- 
activated Guyden Records, which was 
also quick to come up with a chart 
click in “Need You” by Donnie Owens. 
Finfer has set up a heavy schedule of 
November album issues on the Jamie 
and Guyden labels. Among them will 
be Duane Eddy’s first LP, and one by 
Sanford Clark.

Tie-In Arranged Between 
Wing And National Tea 


CHICAGO — A working agreement 
has been developed between Mid- 
west Mercury, the Chicago distrib- 
utor of Mercury Records, and the Chi- 
cago branch of the National Tea 
Company, whereby the latter firm will 
merchandise the Mercury- Wing econ- 
omy line of long playing albums in 
its network of stores, spread through- 
out the greater Chicago ai*ea. 

Norman Stapleton, vice-president 
of the National Tea Company, com- 
pleted the arrangements for his firm, 
which henceforth will make available 
its 235 super markets as consumer 
outlets for the Wing $1.98 merchan- 
dise. 

Under the terms of the pact which 
went into effect on October 1st, of 
this year, Mercury will provide each 
National Tea store with a specifically 
designed wire floor stand, that serves 
the dual purpose of prominently iden- 
tifying the Wing product, as well as 
providing a permanent stock and dis- 
play rack. Each store will also receive 
initially 144 albums, divided into a 
dozen each of 12 different releases. 
Stock will be refreshed and replen- 
ished on a regular fortnightly basis. 

To further enhance the potential of 
the Wing Line, which boasts of 
such name artists as Patti Page, 
Frankie Laine, Sarah Vaughan, Vic 
Damone, Eddy Howard, Ralph Mar- 
terie, David Carroll, etc., Mercury will 
offer regularly on a no charge basis, 
inside-the-store point-of-sale display 
materials, and also provide an ad mat 
service that can be adapted for Na- 
tional Tea’s Advertising program. 

Henry Friedman, who oversees the 
midwest Mercury setup, was quite en- 
thusiastic about the first two weeks 
of the operation and explained, “We 
felt all the time that the impact of 
National Tea’s sales outlets would 
boost tremendously the appeal and 
potential of the Mercury-Wing mer- 
chandise, but we are all quite flab- 
bergasted by just how much our most 
optimistic expectations fell short of 
the amazing job being done by the 
folks at National Tea”. 


Mercury Signs Nichols & May 


CHICAGO — Mercury Records has 
announced the signing of one of 
America’s hottest new comedy teams, 
Mike Nichols and Elaine May, for 
the express purpose of recording a 
long play album that will serve as a 
show case for their popular ad-lib 
style of humor. 

The album, “Impi-ovisations To 
Music”, features all new material 
and is slated for an early November 
release. Background music for the 
set will be provided by Chicago pi- 
anist Marty Rubenstein, who worked 
with Nichols and May previously dur- 
ing their appearance at Mr. Kelly’s 
night club in the Windy City. 

The Nichols-May team is currently 
wowing them in an extended engage- 
ment at New York’s Blue Angel sup- 
per club. Television has also been 
courting the team and recently they 
appeared on the Dave Garroway “To- 
day” show. They also are booked for 
a double date on the Dinah Shore 
program, with the first appearance 
slated for November 30th, and of 
course, they are in line for a return 
visit to the Steve Allen’s Sunday- 
niter, which was the show that ini- 
tially focused the spotlight of fame 
on them. 


Clyde Otis Named to Mercury’s 
A & R Staff 


CHICAGO — Mercury Record Corpo- 
ration’s Executive Vice-President in 
charge of artists and repertoire, Art 
Talmadge, announced the acquisition 
of Clyde Otis as the newest member 
of the firm’s A & R staff. 

Otis is well known in the record 
industry and has been a song writer, 
free lance artist and repertoire direc- 
tor, conductor and recording consul- 
tant during his 12 years in the busi- 
ness. During that period, he has 
worked with many of the leading- 
name artists, including, Patti Page, 
the Diamonds, Nat “King” Cole, Elvis 
Presley, Johnny Mathis, Clyde Mc- 
Phatter, Ruth Brown and an endless 
list of others. Some of the hit rec- 
ords that Otis has been connected 
with were The Diamonds’ million sell- 
ing- smash, “The Stroll”, Cole’s, 
“Looking Back” and “That’s All 
There Is To That”, the Five Keys’, 
“Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind”, Johnny 
Mathis’ “Call Me”, and among others, 
several of Elvis Presley’s biggest 
sellers. 

Some of Otis’ initial responsi- 
bilities will be the next recording 
dates of Rusty Draper, the Del Vik- 
ings, and the Diamonds. It was Nat 
Goodman, the manager of the Dia- 


monds who focused Talmadge’s at- 
tention on Clyde’s abilities. Otis was 
at the Diamond’s session at which 
“The Stroll” was cut and Talmadge 
was so impressed with his ability that 
he made a mental remembrance about 
Clyde. Then, last week, when Bob 
Shad left Mercury, Talmadge flew to 
New York and retained Otis to fill 
the opening. Ironically, Clyde’s ini- 
tial record venture was for the Mer- 
cury label many years ago, when he 
supervised a session of Arthur Pry- 
sock’s. 

With the signing of Otis, the A & R 
division of the company is once again 
at full strength. The A&R lineup 
reads like this: Talmadge, working 
out of Mercury’s headquarters in Chi- 
cago and overseeing the entire oper- 
ation; David Carrol, also in Chicago 
and devoting a great deal of his time 
to album activity as well as singles; 
Hal Mooney, in New York, and divid- 
ing his time between pop single and 
albums; Otis, also in New York, and 
concentrating on singles; Pete Rugulo, 
in Los Angeles and handling all of 
Mercury’s west coast work; and Jack 
Tracy, out of Chicago, and devoting 
himself primarily to the EmArcy jazz 
line. 


Journal Signs Milton Kaye 
As Musical Director 


NEW YORK — Journal Records 
prexy, Tony Dee, has announced the 
signing of Milton Kaye as musical 
director and the pacting of Ray Reno 
to an exclusive record contract. Reno

England. 

Milton Kaye, a CBS staff musician, 
who spent ten years with the Longine

on a non-exclusive basis. 

Elaine Bergman will handle pro- 
motion for the label. 


RCA Repacts Lena Horne 


Neilson Not Yet Decided 


NEW YORK — Contrary to rumors, 
Bill Neilson, who recently resigned as 
Manager of Epic Records, has not 
made a firm committment with any 
record company. 

It has been learned that he is still 
mulling over various offers. For the 
present, his affairs are being con- 
ducted at 10 Forest Drive, Westport,

Vera Hodes Opens New Office 


NEW YORK — Lena Horne has

Popular Artists & Repertoire. 

Under the new pact, Miss Horne

tor.

Aircraft builder presented him with model of its Regulus 2 missile, and 
Local President made Ernie a lifetime member of the gi-oup. 

Angel Issues 1 0 New Albums 


Kniiiniiiimiiiii! 


HOLLYWOOD — Ten new Angel 
Records, including a new recording 
by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, 
were released in October. 

One of the most distinguished Angel 
conductors, Herbert von Karajan, 
leads the Berlin Philharmonic in its 
second recording to be released this 
year, the Bruckner “Symphony No. 8”, 
a de luxe two-record set. 

Another de luxe-boxed set is the 
Tchaikovsky “Sleeping Beauty Ballet” 
(complete), with the Philharmonia 
Orchestra conducted by George Wel- 
don. This recording joins the Proko- 
fiev “Cinderella” and the de Falla 
“Three-Cornered Hat,” both of which 
were released within the last few 
'months, as representatives of the 
world of ballet music which Angel is 
presenting in a continuing series. 

An ambitious recording project was 
begun about two years ago in France 
when Boris Christoff was engaged to 
record all of the sixty-three “Songs of 
Moussorgsky.” The recording was re- 
cently completed, and the “Songs” are 
presented in a four-record set with an 
eighty-eight-page book. The book 
gives the texts of the “Songs” in 
Italian, French, Russian and English, 
together with descriptive notes and 
appropriate material — excerpts, illus- 
trations, musical examples and photo- 
graphs — taken during the recording 
session. The “Songs” are sung in 
Russian. 

Thomas Schippers, whose engage- 
ments have found him conducting in 
many parts of the world, recorded the 
Tchaikovsky “Symphony No. 4” in 
London, with the Philharmonia Or- 
chestra, on one of his recent trips. 

Soprano Aase Nordmo-Loevberg, 
who was heard late last winter in 
Philadelphia and New York for the 
first time, has recorded for Angel a 
collection of the “Songs of Grieg and 
Richard Strauss.” 

Two cellists are represented in the 
October release. First, Pierre Four- 
nier, accompanied by Gerald Moore, 
has a collection of short cello encore 
pieces in an album titled “The Cel- 
list’s Hour”; and second, Janos Star- 
ker, formerly First Cellist of the 
Metropolitan and more recently, of the 
Chicago Symphony, who has recorded 
for Angel the Dohnanyi Kodaly 
“Sonata for Unaccompanied Cello.” 

Paul Kletzi begins this fall his 
tenure as permanent conductor of the 


Dallas Symphony after successes in 
performances with the Cincinnati, Bal- 
timore, Dallas, Mexico City and Phila- 
delphia Orchestras last January and 
February. His October release is the 
Brahms “Symphony No. 1,” and it is 
the first record he has released since 
he became associated with the Dallas 
Orchestra. 

One of the most popular groups be- 
fore the concert public today is the 
Scots Guards Band and Massed Pip- 
ers. These colorful musicians have had 
a great success with previous Angel 
records and now they have turned to 
well known repertoire not normally 
heard as performed by a military 
group. On this record the Scots Guards 
play the rousing tunes from three of 
the Gilbert and Sullivan operettas— 
“Iolanthe,” “Pirates of Penzance” and 
“The Mikado.” 

The October release Is concluded 
with a performance of the music from 
“Facade” by Sir William Walton, 
along with two overtures — “Johannes- 
burg Festival” and “Portsmouth 
Point,” as well as the two “Coronation 
Marches” (1937 and 1953). 

Roulette Signs Two 


NEW Y ORK — Roulette Records last 
week announced the signing of two 
new artists to the roster and the re- 
lease of their first waxings. 

The first is a new duo, Patti & 
Margie. Patti Chase is ten years old 
and has already had a number of pro- 
fessional appearances including a stint 
on the Perry Como Show. Margie 
Thompson is a twelve year old. Both 
girls are also songwriters and their 
first disk for the label “No, No Baby” 
is their first recorded collaboration. 
The girls walked off with a recording- 
contract when they dropped in one day 
on Hugo Peretti and Luigi Creatore, 
Roulette’s A&R team unannounced 
and demonstrated their composition. 

Roulette has also signed Steve Clay- 
ton, a one time regular on NBC Band- 
stand and previously with Coral Rec- 
ords. His first release is entitled 
“Somebody Else Took Her Home” and 
“I Wanna Be Loved.” Steve is cur- 
rently filling night-club dates in and 
around the New York City area.

ROCHESTER, N. Y.— Deejay Bob. E. Lloyd, WHEC, tangles with a 
“magic brain” during one of his remote broadcasts at the Rochester Business 
Show, held at the Chamber of Commerce Building, October 1 through 3. Bob 
E. was the stellar entertainment feature at the Business Show and broadcast 
his full two-and-a-half hour program (3:30-6 PM) from the main exhibit hall 
every day. He’s seen here surrounded by members of the Flower City Chapter,

Dot Signs Agreement Carlton Staff Heads For 
For South Asian Market Road With 3 Disks 


HOLLYWOOD — Dot Records 
steadily expanding its foreign oper- 
ation, announced last week that exec 
Jim Bailey, in charge of the label’s 
international division, signed an agree- 
ment covering the huge 90,000,000 
population South Asian market of 
Indonesia. 

Dot granted an exclusive right to 
the Indonesian market to Adam K. 
Wen, well-known businessman with 
headquarters in Djarkata, whose pur- 
chases of Dot records per month for 
Indonesia alone will run into a re- 
ported minimum of five figures. Wen 
is represented in Los Angeles by his 
associate, Henry Song, who is also 
head of Trade Makers, an export com- 
pany. Jim Bailey announced that 
W'en and Song expect to expand far 
beyond their initial commitment, and 
foresees a tremendous increase in 
South Asian business, based on a 
comprehensive survey just completed 
by Wen on a trip throughout the 
entire area. Bailey stated that Dot’s 
agreement with Wen and Song will 
later be superseded by an overall 
agreement covering- all of Southeast 
Asia, in all markets where Dot does 
not have a present commitment with 
existing licensees. Bailey further 
stated that to date, Wen’s entrance 
into the record business is confined 
to handling the Dot line exclusively. 

Indonesia lies northwest of Aus- 
tralia, south of Borneo near the New 
Guinea group, and includes the islands 
of Java and Sumatra among others. 


Roth NamedTo FoxPost 


NEW YORK — Sam Fox Publishing 
announced last week the appointment 
of Lewis Roth as Director of the 
firm’s Educational Department, head- 
quartering at the New York office. 

Roth, a graduate of the Juilliard 
School of Music, brings with him a 
background of varied experience in 
the field of music education. He was 
previously Educational Director of 
Shapiro Bernstein and formerly on 
the staff of Mills Music. 


NEW YORK— Three Carlton Rec- 
ords, two bought masters, and one 
original platter, form a Carlton 
“Action” package, which calls for 
simultaneous road trips this week by 
all Carlton personnel. 

The disks are: “My Life Is In Your 
Hands” by 17 year old Vic Donna, 
purchased by Joe Carlton, Carlton 
prexy, from Jack Angel and Sid 
Askanas, New York entrepreneurs; 
“Miss Lucy” by Big All Downing, 
purchased by West Coast Carlton 
veepee Don Genson from deejay Jim 
Lowe, owner of White Rock Records, 
which previously released the side, 
and “Five Little Numbers” by the 
Chantones. The group has backed 
Carlton artist Jack Scott on his wax- 
ings. 

Those who will hit the road this 
week are Carlton, Genson, sales man- 
ager Juggy Gayles, South-western 
field manager Lelan Rogers, newly 
appointed Eastern field manager 
Lenny Mysels, and advertising man- 
ager Cy Carlton. In addition, pro- 
motion director Morris Diamond, who 
is fresh out of the hospital following 
a recent operation, will be pitching- 
in on the promotion chores from the 
home offices here. 

All three records were shipped last 
week and music publishers involved 
are sending out specially pressed 
advance records and a buy-three-get- 
three-free gimmick is being used to 
stimulate initial distributor response.

All Star Show Entertains U.S. 
Armed Forces In Pacific 


NEW YORK— An all-star enter- 
tainment bill left the United States 
Sunday, October 12, for a ten-week 
tour of the U. S. Armed Forces sta- 
tioned in the Pacific. The free per- 
formances for servicemen overseas 
will feature Noro Morales and his 
band along with a number of star 
acts* that will include Jackie McElroy, 
Shirley Van, Beverly Palmer, and 
comic-emcee Jerry Vernon. 

A special press preview of the Flip- 
Top Revue, sent to the Orient by Phil- 
lip Morris and Marlboro cigarettes, 
took place recently in the Oxford 
Room of the Hotel Picadilly in New 
York City. Arrangements for the 
troupe’s overseas tour of Pacific bases 
were handled by Joseph Cahn, Vice- 
President in charge of Advertising 
and Director of Military Sales for 
Philip Morris Overseas, and Lt. Col. 
Lionel (“Coach”) Layden, of the 
Armed Forces Professional Branch. 

Noro Morales, whose music has 
been a feature for the past eleven 
years at New York’s famous annual 
Harvest Moon Ball, headed up last 
year’s Philip Morris-Marlboro Revue 
that entertained servicemen in Europe 
on a 72-performance tour. Since the 
peacetime reduction of entertainment 
for the armed forces, Philip Morris 
has volunteered to augment with spe- 
cial shows for servicemen stationed 
abroad. This year’s troupe will mark 
the sixth year that the cigarette com- 
pany has sent entertainment to the 
armed foi’ces overseas. 


Settino Enterprises Formed 


NEW YORK — The formation of 
Settino Enterprises and A1 Dibo Rec- 
ords, both of 1650 Broadway, this 
city, was announced by A1 Reno, 
prexy of the firms. Settino and Ai 
Dibo welcome the presentation of 
songs, demos, masters, etc., at their 
offices. 


Seeco’s Domestic Sales 
Double In 1st 9 Months 


NEW YORK — Howard Roseff, pro- 
duction director of Seeco Records, re- 
ported last week that during the first 
nine months of 1958 the domestic 
sales of Seeco Records were almost 
double the similar 1957 period. 

Roseff attributed the all-time high 
volume to the heavy increase in pop 
album material and the introduction 
in the beginning of the summer of 
the low-priced Tropical label. 

In particular, Roseff pointed to the 
best-selling Jose Melis albums, the 
“Songs They Censored In The Hills” 
LP and the new Tropical line as the 
biggest factors in Seeco’s sales gain. 
Roseff said, “As soon as the story 
that we were going to introduce Trop- 
ical into South America hit the trade 
papers, we were swamped with phone 
calls from dealers in this country. 
We hadn’t even begun to press and w$ 
were already jumping our production 
figures. 

“The future looks just as bright. 
We have already received advance 
orders for more than 20,000 copies of 
the Jose Melis Christmas album and 
the new single release ‘Felicia’, by 
the Orbits, looks to be our first pop 
hit.” 


Kapp Issues TV Cast LP 


“ Only those records best suited for commercial use are reviewed by THE CASH BOX” 


NEW YORK— Kapp Records re- 
leased last week original TV cast re- 
cording of the Richard Adler songs 
for the musical version of “Little 
Women”, which was seen Thursday, 
Oct. 16 over CBS-TV. 

Sung by Jeanne Carson, Florence 
Henderson, Bill Hayes (Kapp artist), 
Zina Bethune, Roland Winters, and 
Rise Stevens, the eight Adler songs 
for the show heard on the album in- 
clude “How Do Write A Book?’’, 
“Love I Mean”, “Man Of The Family”, 
“The Letter (My Little Women)’, 
“I Don’t Want To Be A Fly”, “Dance, 
Why Not?”, “Party Shoes” and “The 
Four Of Us”. 

The original cast proceedings take 
up one side of the disk; the flip side 
is a Golden Strings presentation of 
six songs for “Little Women”.

Altshuler Named 
U A Ad-Promo Head 


NEW YORK — Robert S. Altshuler 
has been appointed Director of Ad- 
vertising and Publicity for United 
Artists Records, it was announced 
last week by Monte Kay, Vice-Presi- 
dent and General Manager of the com- 
pany. 

The post was newly created to su- 
pervise all advertising and publicity 
and also the packaging of LP albums 
for United Artists Records. 

Altshuler, whose appointment is ef- 
fective immediately, previousy had 
been Publicity and Promotion Direc- 
tor for Prestige and Riverside Rec- 
ords during the past three-and-a-half 
years. He set up these departments 
for both record companies. 

Before coming to New York he had 
been an announcer with a number of 
New England radio stations, intro- 
ducing one of the first jazz record 
shows on the air in the area while 
broadcasting for WLAW, Lawrence, 
Mass., during the early ’40’s. Alt- 
shuler also was associated with 
WKNE, Keene, and WMUR, Man- 
chester, N. H. 

He attended Emerson College, Bos- 
ton, New England’s equivalent of New 
York’s Academy of Dramatic Arts. 
During the war Altshuler served for 
three years with the Army Signal 
Corps. 

He now lives with his wife and two 
children, Michael 6, and Jonathan 3, 
in Harbor Isle, Long Island. 

Mirrosonic Issues 
4th Organ MeetSet 

NEW YORK — Mirrosonic Records, 
Ltd., announced last week the release 
of Volume 4 in a series of six High 
Fidelity albums covering the First 
International Congress of Organists 
in London, July 27 to August 2, 1957. 
This two-LP album features “A Mini- 
ature Anthology Of English Organ 
Music”, a recital performed by Ralph 
Downes, renowned British organist 
and organ designer, from Brompton 
Oratory. 

The “Anthology” recital follows a 
historical chronology from the time 
of William Byrd and Orlando Gibbons 
up through the early 19th century 
period exemplified by Samuel Wesley 
(1766-1837). This is the first pro- 
gram in the ICO series to play early 
English music on a baroque organ. 

The second half of Downes’ recital 
is devoted to the works of two con- 
temporary composers, Harold Darke 
and Malcolm Williamson. Darke, a 
tx-aditionalist, is represented in “Chor- 
al Prelude on a Theme by Tallis” and 
while the music is in the English 
Romantic idiom, it still retains its 
essential qualities even though per- 
formed on a baroque instrument. This 
is also true of his interpretation of 
“Fons Amoris”, a work composed in 
a dissonant contemporary idiom. 

Other organists on the release in- 
clude Gordon Jeffery and Dr. Francis 
Jackson, both of whom perform on the 
Westminster Abey organ. Volume 5 
of ICO is scheduled for release later 
in the fall. 


Connie In The Capitol 



WASHINGTON, D. 0. — Connie Francis, chart-riding MGM thrush, in town 
to plug her latest deck, “Failin’,” recently dropped in to chat with popular 
WWDC, deejay Fred Fiske. Miss Francis, whose “Stupid Cupid” and “Carolina 
Moon” are top items on the English charts, is currently reoresented on the 
U.S. lists with “Failin’ ” and “Happy Days And Lonely Nights.” 


Livingston 3% IPS 
Stereo Tapes 


CALDWELL, N. J.— Two-track, 
half-ho ur stereo tapes are being mar- 
keted by Livingston Audio Products 
Corporation at a retail price of $6.95, 
it was announced recently. This sub- 
stantial reduction in price was made 
possible by the fact that these tapes 
are recorded at 3.75 IPS, rather than 
at 7.5 IPS heretofore the customary 
speed in the recorded tape industry. 

Virtually every tape recorder man- 
ufactured during the past several 
years has a provision for playback at 
this lower speed. Thus it may be ex- 
pected that many stereo tape enthusi- 
asts, who may have been reluctant to 
purchase 7.5 IPS stereo tapes because 
of the considerably higher price, will 
now be able to augment their li- 
braries. 

In fact, initial reaction from both 
the trade and ultimate consumers has 
been so enthusiastic, says a spokes- 
man for the company, that the first 
release of this new “CX” series has 
been set to include over 85 titles. 
This new series, it was pointed out, 
in no way replaces, but rather supple- 
ments Livingston’s catalog of stereo 
tapes at 7.5 IPS, and thus will be 
obtainable at all stores handling the 
Livingston line. 

This large initial release of “CX” 
series tapes contains a wide variety 
of musical material; classical stand- 
ards are represented as well as dance, 
pop, jazz and folk music. Lenny Her- 
man and his Band is featured on 
twelve programs. 

S & S Adds Anderson 


DETROIT — S and S Distributing 
Company (MGM, Disneyland), in De- 
troit, l'ecently added Doris Anderson 
to its record promotion department. 
Miss Anderson was previously asso- 
ciated with three of Detroit’s top disk 
jockeys: Ed McKenzie, Don McLeod, 
and Bob Maxwell, and also did record 
promotion for Coral Records in De- 
troit at one time.

POPULAR PICKS OF THE WEEK |— 



“ELLA FITZGERALD SINGS THE IRV- 
ING BERLIN SONG BOOK”— Paul Weston 
And His Orchestra — Verve MG V-4019 
(2-12" LP) 

The great songstress adds another out- 
standing cleffer to her Verve catalogue of 
top-composer song books (Rodgers-Hart, 
Cole Porter, Duke Ellington), and the re- 
sults are vocal treasures. Though Berlin is 
the master of the song hit, the 31-tune bill 
wisely includes many Berlin creations woe- 
fully neglected over the years (“Change 
Partners”, “You Keep Coming Back Like 
A Song”, “I Used To Be Colorblind” and 
“You’re Laughing At Me”). Paul Weston’s 
ork admirably follows the various tempos. 
Here’s chart material. 


“POLITELY!” — Keely Smith With Billy 
May And His Orchestra — Capitol T 1073 
Another Capitol solo stint by Miss Smith 
away from the mad antics of hubby Louis 
Prima, the disk is likely to repeat the list- 
ing success of her “I Wish You Love” 
vocals. Miss Smith’s style is a trusty merger 
of pop and jazz ideas, and such old timers 
as “S’Posin’,” “I’ll Get By”, “I Can’t Get 
Started”, “The Song Is You” are taken 
through honest, refreshing pacings. Billy 
May on persuasive ork backing. 


“VOICES IN LOVE” — The Four Freshmen 
— Capitol T 1074 

A jazz vocal group with consistent chart 
standing (its last one, “The Four Freshmen 
In Person”), the boys warm-up to an able 
collection of sentimentals (“It Could Hap- 
pen To You”, “In The Still Of The Night”, 
“Warm”, “Out Of Nowhere”), foregoing all- 
out swing attacks for another day. Support 
is sweetly string-directed. 


“JACKIE GLEASON PRESENTS RE- 
BOUND”— Capitol W 1075 

After several ork experiments (“Rif 
Jazz”, “Velvet Brass”), Gleason returns to 
his deliberately-paced mood formula of old. 
With pianist Bernie Leighton replacing oft 
Gleason disk trumpeter Buddy Hackett as 
soloist, the string ork (also Romeo Penique 
on oboe d’amour) eases through 15 stand- 
ards (“More Than You Know”, “All The 
Things You Are”, “Ain’t Misbehavin’”). 
The deck has a strong chart feel. 



“GO SOUTH YOUNG MAN”— Tony Martin— 
RCA Victor LPM-1778 (1-12" LP) 

Martin, noted for his big voice, generally car- 
ries a soft vocal stick here, and it’s all to the 
good for his program of richy melodic Spanish 
favorites. The suppleness of such items as “Per- 
haps, Perhaps, Perhaps”, “Orchids In The Moon- 
light” (an American product), “Maria Elena” and 
“You Belong To My Heart” naturally belong to 
caressed vocals. The A1 Sendrey ork-chorus notes 
the Spanish theme colorfully. Strong Martin 
issue. 


“ROS ON BROADWAY”— Emundo Ros And His 
Orchestra — London LL 3048 

Ros, true to his form, transcribes a dozen able 
show-tunes in various Latin beats (cha cha, 
merengue, bolero, etc.) with a bright ingenuity 
even the show music coterie will respect. Know- 
ing a good melody when it plays one, the Ros ork 
manages to keep the tune around as they engage 
in fancy Latin flights. The songs include “Be- 
witched,” “So In Love”, “I Talk To The Trees”, 
“Hernando’s Hideaway”. One of the Ros’ strong- 
est issues. 


“THE GREAT TD” — Tommy Dorsey And His 
Orchestra — Colpix CP 401 

Among the late ork leader’s last record dates, 
the sides are a good-sounding, sentimental-swing- 
novelty roundup of oldies and tunes of a more 
recent vintage (“Marie”, “Silk Stocking”, “Who”, 
“High And Mighty”). Eight tracks feature band- 
stand-styled vocal stints by Bill Raymond, Gordon 
Polk and Lynn Roberts. Here’s very saleable ork 
performances. 



Si S 



“WE ARE THE CHANTELS”— End LP 301 
This collection of single efforts by the femme 
rock ’n roll team is beat stock of the first order. 
These are mainly ballad-beat performances, 
among them such Chantel clicks as “Maybe”. 
“Everynight”, “Congratulations”, and “I Love 
You So”. Should be readily available for teen 
purchasers. 



“MEMORIES OF VIENNESE OPERETTAS”— 
George Feyer, Piano — With Rhythm Accompani- 
ment — RCA Victor LPM-1862 

Pianist Feyer, of Vox Record’s “Echo” series 
note, follows-up his tasteful initial Victor entry 
of “Oklahoma!” and “South Pacific” music with 
a bright and sentimental account of melodious 
operetta selections (“My Hero”, “Stars In My 
Eyes”, “The Merry Widow Waltz”, etc.). Under 
Feyer’s skilled guidance, there’s freshness in the 
most oft-performed numbers. A faithful Feyer 
traffic will ask for this one. 



Hi&todf&rf; 


“SPELLBOUND”— Ray Heindorf And The Or- 
chestra — Accompanied By Dr. Samuel Hoffman. 
Theramin — Warner Bros. 1213 

Another memorable film score is revived with 
hi-fi, sound track-like standards by the Heindorf 
ork (the last one was “For Whom The Bell 
Tolls”). The Miklos Rozsa score possesses one 
of the most haunting pic melodies in the famed 
title theme, and retains an expert relationship 
to the atmosphere of the melodrama (i.e. “Ski 
Run”). Much of the score’s eerieness comes from 
the use of the theramin, an electronic instrument, 
originally employed in the sound track score. 
Long-term sales stock. 



“DANCING ON PARK AVENUE”— Tony Cabot 
And His Orchestra — RCA Victor LPM-1723 
Cabot enters the catalog of society-beat pro- 
gramming with a zestful twenty-five tune run- 
through in which Cabot employs an ork of in- 
creased-size over the regular, almost combo make- 
up of other society outfits. A reliable purchase 
for those who enjoy the business man bounce 
approach. 


“FAITH OF OUR FATHERS”— The Johnson 
Family Singers Featuring Betty Johnson — Co- 
lumbia CL 1177 

These are pressings by the famed hymnal group 
cut when popular thrush Betty Johnson was a 
member of the vocal team. The professional yet 
unpretentious nature of the group’s harmony is 
heard in warm renditions of twelve inspirational 
selections. Miss Johnson’s fame apart from the 
group will increase the already solid market 
here. 



“JUNE’S GOT RHYTHM”— June Christv— 

Capitol T 1076 

With hubby Bob Cooper providing excel- 
lent, stand-by-themselves small band 
(Shelly Manne, Red Callender, etc.) ar- 
rangements, Miss Christy takes an engag- 
ing swing hold of most of her program 
(she’s effectively chummy with “My One 
And Only Love”, and “I’m Glad There Is 
Vou” and “Easy Living”). Easy sell vocal 
jazz waxing. 



“LOVER MAN”— Billie Holiday— Decca DL 8702 
These tracks were cut by the stylist between 
1944 and 1950, and are fitting samplings of her 
sad, touching way with a tune. With support 
mostly pop-geared (strings, vocal group support). 
Miss Holiday recalls the wistfulness of such gems 
as “Porgy”, “Lover Man”, “Solitude” and “Old 
Devil Called Love”. Prime Billie Holiday re-issues.

“KISMET”— Mastersounds— World Pacific WP- 
1243 

Russian composer Alexander Borodin’s exotic 
and tricky melodies, the song source of Broad- 
way’s “Kismet”, receive a jazz look which either 
skillfully upholds their Oriental-like delicacy, or 
presents them for the nicely swingable creations 
they are. In whatever direction the quintet turns 
to, skilled jazz is the charming vehicle for the 
tunes. Expert musical-comedy-to-jazz doings. 



GRIEG: Concerto A Minor For Piano And Or- 
chestra, Op. 16 — RACHMANINOFF: Rhapsody 
On A Theme Of Paganini, Op. 43 — Philippe En- 
tremont, Pianist — The Philadelphia Orchestra, 
Eugene Ormandy, Conductor — Columbia ML 
5282 

Enthusiastic critical response given the 24 
year old French pianist adds considerable sales 
punch to this entry of two works found in abund- 
ance in the LP catalog. Packaging dramatically 
notes the strength of the Grieg-Rachmaninoff- 
Entremont program. Display plum. 



“BLUE LIGHTS” (Vol. 1)— Kenney Burrell- 
Blue Note 1596 

Guitarist Burrell is at the helm of a varying 
four/five/six/seven man combo setup on four fine 
blues-oriented takes which range from the earthy 
statements of “Yes Baby” to the punch of 
“Caravan”. In between, Burrell offers an effec- 
tively plaintive solo on “Autumn In New York”. 
Some others in the cast: drummer Art Blakey; 
trumpeter Louis Smith; bassist Sam Jones. 
Worthwhile jazz inventory. 



LlEUT£NAfJT 


PROKOFIEFF: Peter And The Wolf— Lieuten- 
ant Kije Suite— Boris Karloff — Mario Rossi Con- 
ducting The Vienna State Opera Orchestra — Van- 
guard VRS 1028 

Prokofieff’s engaging lesson in orchestral in- 
struments is skilfully in the hands of pros Boris 
Karloff and the Vienna State Opera Orchestra 
here. To complete the all-Prokofieff program, 
side 2 brightly displays the composer’s rich 
orchestral harvest, the “Lieutenant Kije Suite”. 
Fine sound. Though competition is thick on both 
works, the waxing can hold its own. 


KIDDIE 



“ADVENTURES IN SOUND AND SPACE”— 
Col. Frank Erhardt & Cast — RCA Victor LBY- 
1013 

The closer-than-we-think prospects of space 
travel are set forth for children in an exciting- 
storyline based mostly on currently acceptable 
space data. Jam-packed with actual missile 
sounds, and astral orchestrations from the Marty 
Gold ork, the space trip includes stop-overs on 
the moon and Mars. Victor has noted the sound 
value of the disk by making a stereo version 
of the affair (at $2.98 as compared to the $1.98 
monaural issue). An excellent kiddie lesson on 
space. 




MADAMA BUTTERFLY 


PUCCINI: Madama Butterfly (Complete) 
— Anna Moffo, Cesare Valletti — Rosalind 
Elias — Renato Cesari — Fernando Corena — 
Erich Leinsdorf Conducting The Rome 
Opera House Orchestra And Chorus — RCA 
Victor LM-6135 (3-12" LP) 

The package enters a “Madama Butter- 
fly” catalog replete with glittering operatic 
names (de los Angeles, Tebaldi, Steber, 
Gobbi, Campora), and yet this version has 
its sales points: beautiful packaging, and 
within the package, a performance of 
freshness, and vitality by the gifted young 
cast. Dealers should note, at this time, value 
of the presentation in Xmas gift buying. 
Stereo version available. 


CARMEN 

DRAGON 


' < ORjbirale 


“ORIENTALE” — Carmen Dragon Conduct- 
ing The Capitol Symphony Orchestra — Cap- 
itol P 8453 

This is a fine-sounding oriental-far east- 
ern-like collection of vignettes from the 
able pens of such composer magicians as 
Rimsky-Korsakov (“Song of India”); 
Tchaikovsky (“Arabian Dance”); Beetho- 
ven (“Turkish March”); Moussorgsky 
(“Persian Dance”) and others. A natural 
for the semi-classical shelf. 



MOZART: Sonata In B Flat Major K. 454 — 
Sonata In A Major Iv. 526— Yehudi Menuhin, 
Violin — Louis Kentner, Piano — EMI — Capitol G 
7123 

This teaming of exceptional talent in Menuhin 
and Kentner (brothers-in-law) will greatly off- 
set stiff competition from the B-Flat violin 
sonata (Oistrakh, Heifetz, Szigetti), while there 
is virtually no challenge on the A-Major sonata. 
Fine sound. The more astute classical traffic 
will find much attraction hex-e. 



“PARAPHRASES, TRANSCRIPTIONS AND 
IMPROVISATIONS”— Gyorgy Cziffra — Piano- 
Angel 35610 

Technical virtuosity is what they really mean 
by the title, and the Hungarian-born, critically 
acclaimed here pianist comes-thi-ough with a glit- 
tering display of pianistics on a bill of eight 
popular bonbons (“Flight Of The Bumble Bee”, 
“Sabre Dance”, “William Tell Overture”, “The 
Blue Danube”). Fine sound. This will fascinate 
keyboard lovers. 



“MUSIC FROM THE FRENCH BALLET 
STAGE” — The Little Orchestra of London Con- 
ducted By Leslie Jones— MGM E3710 

Entrancing excerpts of ballet music of four 
French composers (Delibes, Gluck, Rameau, 
Gretry) form a fine presentation to the many 
who take pai’ticular delight in ballet scores. 
These are works not covered to any great extent 
in the catalog, and their well-performed appear- 
ance here conveniently brings them together. 
Lovely Degas ballet scene adorns package.

Pianist Fleisher, among today’s notable young-

ideas and expressions, and the disk should be 
well received by classical purchasei-s. Able sup- 
port from Szell and the Cleveland orchestra. 
Excellent sound.

CHRISTMAS PICKS OF THE WEEK |~ 


MEHRY CHRISTTMLAS 

TflHNNY MATHIS 



“MERRY CHRISTMAS”— Johnny Mathis— 

Columbia CL 1195 (1-12" LP) 

This sure-smash is a Mathis reflection on 
Xmas in both a pop and more serious vein. 
The two areas are represented by such 
superior numbers as “The Christmas Song”, 
“Silent Night, Holy Night”, “White Christ- 
mas” and “0 Holy Night”. Strong Percy 
Faith ork backing.

“CHRISTMAS SING - ALONG WITH 
MITCH”- — Mitch Miller & The Gang — Co- 
lumbia CL 1205 

Thirteen Holiday stand-bys are per- 
formed with simple taste by the Miller 
crew, who under the Mitch Miller & The 
Gang label have issued two successful 
community sing-along pop packages. Added 
Christmas appeal here is the inclusion of 
eight tear-out pages in the book-type sleeve 
containing the lyrics to the melodies. Should 
be a favorite Xmas purchase. 



“CHRISTMAS WITH GRANDMA MOSES” 
— RCA Victor LOP-1009 

Here’s a pretty and inviting disk “Xmas 
card” for Holiday traffic. Built around re- 
corded and written reminiscenses by famed 
painter Grandma Moses, and including 3 
of her charmingly nostalgic Christmas 
scenes in the book-type package, the waxing 
is warm twenty-two song collection of 
Christmas-folk items performed by the 
Ralph Hunter Choir, Skitch Henderson on 
the Hausmusick, and a Music Box. This 
should be one of the hit Xmas presentations 
year after year. 



“CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS AT THE RADIO 
CITY MUSIC HALL”— RCA Victor LOP-IOIO 
Here’s a Christmas disk extravaganza, per- 
formance and package-wise, of special note. Per- 
formed by New' York’s Radio City Music Hall 
orkorgan-choral stage line-up, the studio-recorded 
disk is an omnibus of Holiday glitter that in- 
cludes medleys of Xmas favorites, plus a “Cin- 
derella Ballet”. Four-color shots of the famed 
Music Hall Rockettes, stage scenes and the story 
behind Musical Hall productions form the basis 
of the book-type packaging.

“THE COLUMBIA ALBUM OF CHRISTMAS 
MUSIC”— Percy Faith And His Orchestra— Co- 
lumbia C2L 15 (2-12" LP) 

The Columbia two-pocket series of famed pop 
composer music takes a Holiday break in expres- 
sive orchestral treatments of twenty-eight fa- 
vored Xmas carols. For those who program 
Season selections near the Xmas tree or outside 
the home these recordings will come as a par- 
ticular joy. 



“MERRY, MERRY, MERRY, MERRY, MERRY 
FROM CAPTAIN KANGAROO”— Bob Keeshan— 
Golden GLP: 26 

Kiddie favorite Bob (“Captain Kangaroo”) 
Keeshan leads the way in a joyful collection of 17 
Xmas tunes, including a version of Dickens’ “A 
Christmas Carol”. Among the songs brightly por- 
trayed by Keeshan and the ork-chorus; “Jingle 
Bells”, “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer”, “Deck 
The Halls”, “Sleigh Ride”. Strong $1.98. Fine 
Season kiddie inventory. 



“THE NATIVITY”— John Facenda, Narrator— 
RCA Victor LOP-1504 

An eloquently performed, hapdsomely pack- 
aged story of the Nativity offers dealers an im- 
portant issue for the Xmas shelf. Philadelphia 
newscaster John Facenda nai'rates with rich con- 
viction, and musical-vocal support effectively un- 
derlines the emotion of the story. Children will 
particularly enjoy the drawings and accompany- 
ing description in the book-type sleeve. 

Staple Xmas issue.

Dickens’ “Christmas 
Carol” On Vanguard 


NEW YORK — Vanguard Records is 
adding a dramatization of the Dickens 
classic, “A Christmas Carol” to its 
list of recordings for the holiday sea- 
son. With actress, Siobhan McKenna, 
who has appeared here in such hits 
as “The Chalk Garden”, “The Rope 
Dancers” and “St. Joan”, playing the 
roles of the Ghosts of Christmas Past, 
Present and Future, the cast is made 
up actors of the Dublin theatre, in- 
cluding A new McMaster, Irish Shake- 
spearian actor, as Scrooge. The disk’s 
cover features drawings from the 
original edition, and notes are by S. 
W. Bennett. 

Another release in Vanguard’s se- 
ries of complete-performance demon- 
stration disks is Beethoven’s Sym- 
phony No. 5 in C minor played by the 
Vienna State Opera Orchestra under 
Felix Prohaska. Release is in both 
stereo and monaural. Full dealer 
discount continues on this series, 
which now includes such releases as 
Rimsky - Korsakov’s “Scheherazade” 
and four Hungarian Rhapsodies for 
Orchestra by Liszt. 

Other new releases on the Vanguard 
label, both in stereo and monaural, 
are a disk of English Folk Songs 
titled “Western Wind” sung by the 
counter-tenor, Alfred Deller; “Sere- 
nata” played by I Solisti di Zagreb 
conducted by Antonio Janigro and 
featuring string works by Rossini, 
Albinoni, Corelli, Paradis, Haydn and 
Boccherini; and a collection of Ameri- 
can folk songs by the new and impor- 
tant young folk singer, Leon ‘Bibb, 
making his record debut. Stereo ver- 
sions of “An 18th Century Christ- 
mas” and Bach’s Magnificat in D, both 
previously released in monaural ver- 
sions, are also on the agenda. 

Rounding out the November list is 
a new monaural novelty record titled 
“The Baby Sitters”, sung by the Baby 
Sitters Quartette, featuring folk 
songs for babies, small children, par- 
ents and baby sitters. 


Harmon To Be Bozo For Cap 


HOLLYWOOD — Larry Harmon has 
been signed to an exclusive recording- 
contract by Capitol Records. Terms 
of the deal stipulate that he will per- 
form the voice of “Bozo, the Capitol 
Clown” in all future issues of Capi- 
tol’s best-selling “Bozo” series. Terms 
of the contract also give Capitol ex- 
clusive rights to characters, TV and 
screen properties owned by Larry 
Harmon Productions, Inc. which can 
be adapted to Capitol’s recording rep- 
ertoire. 

The deal is an outgrowth of Har- 
mon’s acquisition from Capitol of TV 
and merchandising rights to “Bozo” 
which he has in production at Cali- 
fornia Studios as a series of 156 six- 
minute color cartoons for TV. In 
addition to producing, Harmon per- 
forms the voices of “Bozo” and other 
principal characters in the series, 
which is being distributed nationally 
by Reub Kaufman’s Jayark Films 
Corporation. 


8 New Stereo LP’s 
On Grand Award 


HARRISON, N. J.— Enoch Light, 
Grand Award A&R Chief, last week 
announced the release of eight mew 
stereo albums for the month of Octo- 
ber. The new releases bring the total 
number of stereo albums in the Grand 
Award catalog to twenty. 

Four of the eight packages in the 
October release spotlight great shows 
and movies, recorded by Enoch Light 
& his Orch. & Chorus with singers 
from the TV and recording fields: 
“Around The World In 80 Days”, 
“Gigi,” “My Fair Lady,” and “Okla- 
homa and South Pacific.” The four 
other packages are: “The World’s 
Most Beautiful Waltzes” recorded by 
the Strings of the Symphonia Royale; 
“Italia” starring Luigi Chianti and 
his Orchestra Populare; “Corrida” an 
album of bullfight music performed 
by La Banda Los Amantes de la Cor- 
rida; and “The Torchy Thirties” fea- 
turing Enoch Light and the Light

each of the eight new releases, one 
each of the eight current best-sellers 
from the existing stereo LP catalog, 
plus two bonus records comes en- 
closed in a gold browser rack along 
with special stereo display material. 
The dealer pays the regular price for 
the twenty-four stereo LP’s but re- 
ceives a bonus of two free stereo 
albums in each prepack unit. The 
bonus records are “The Great Song 
Hits of the Glenn Miller Orchestra” 
starring Bobby Byrne and the All Star 
Alumni Orchestra and “The Roaring 
20’s — volume 2” by Enoch Light and

month of October. The dealer may 
place his orders as often as he wishes. 

Sale3 aids have been sent to all 
Grand Award distributors to promote 
the October deal in the form of special 
instruction sheets, order blanks, pic- 
tures of the racks and records and a 
book of all stereo album covers. 

Enoch Light also added that sales 
on Grand Award stereo albums have 
exceeded all expectations, accounting 
for 20 9t of the total sales volume for 
the past two months.

Stereo LP Line 


NEW YORK — Disneyland Records 
introduced its stereophonic package 
line last week at a dealer-press dem- 
onstration at New York’s Warwick 
Hotel. 

The highlight of the current Dis- 
neyland stereo issue is Leopold Sto- 
kowski-Philadelphia Orchestra read- 
ing of the sound-track music from

MPA Meets 


NEW YORK — Alan C. Frank, 
manager of the music department of 
the London offices of the Oxford Uni- 
versity Press, was guest speaker at 
the general meeting of the Music 
Publishers’ Association of the United 
States, Wednesday, October 13, at 
the Warwick Hotel in New York and 
compared the British publishers’ prob- 
lems with the American publishing 
firms’. 

Frank, also a director of the Per- 
forming Rights Society of Great Brit- 
ain, said that “although on the whole, 
the nine major orchestras of Great 
Britain are fairly enterprising, the 
problems of programming contempo- 
rary works, — lower box office re- 
ceipts, and extra expense of extra re- 
hearsals result in fewer perform- 
ances than the composer and pub- 
lisher need to make these works prof- 
itable.” 

The fees accruing from approxi- 
mately 13% performances in the U.S. 
serve to support publication, while 
in Britain, 13 performances (not 
broadcast) would not pay half the 
cost of publication, according to 
Frank. Another unfortunate differ- 
ence for the English publisher, said 
Frank, is the few repeat perform- 
ances from tapes that the BBC, the 
only English radio broadcasting ser- 
vice, programs. 

One of the mainstays of the com- 
posers’ and publishers’ performance 
rights fees has been the “Third Pro- 
gram”, a BBC broadcast of serious 
music, until last year a five-hour pro- 
gram. Cut to three hours last week, 
it reduced the revenue to British 
composers and publishers by almost 
50%, but since then such income has 
been increased slightly. Frank urged 
that American publishers be sure that 
the BBC has commercial disks of our 
American music for use on its pro- 
grams, and that we improve our liai- 
son with - BBC regarding tapes for 
broadcast use. 

Neither commercial nor govern- 
ment television has helped the British 
music publisher or composer to any 
degree, according to Frank, since 
“the ideal medium of diffusion of se- 
rious music is that of sound broad- 
casting of gramophone record”. 

“We feel in England,” Frank con- 
tinued, “that your [the U.S.] situ- 
ation is less favorable in one impor- 
tant respect, than ours, since in Eng- 
land the phrase ‘not for pi’ofit’ does 
not deter the collection of perform- 
ance fees. The Performing Rights 
Society takes the view that if a 
cloak-room attendant is paid, why 
should not the composer and publish- 
er be, regardless of whether or not 
an admission fee is charged.” 

Prior to Frank’s talk, the mem- 
bers of the MPA approved changes 
in their constitution. The notice dis- 
tributed by the MPA explaining copy- 
right law has reached over the 10,000 
people in the music professions, and 
the education campaign on copyrights 
is continuing. Co-operative exhibits 
through the MPA at the major music 
meetings throughout the country still 
will continue, and co-operation with 
music dealers on the development of 
standard group of business forms is 
under way. A standard, blanket-type 
of agreement setting forth a method 
whereby colleges may request per- 
mission for the use of copyright ma- 
terial is being formulated. The pub- 
lishers also agreed to make available 
to music organizations their series of 
60 colored slides illustrating the music 
publishing business. 


Dugong Disk For Real 

NEW YORK — It started as a 
gag and look what happened in 48 
hours ! 

Bill Randle of WERE-Cleveland 
picked up a Reuters dispatch last 
week which carried the story of a 
1,000-lb. mammal, called a Dugong, 
with a female human-like face caught 
off the coast of Africa. This revived 
the fable of sailors having seen mer- 
maids on their travels. Randle decided, 
in fun, to highlight this story on his 
program, and kept it up a few days. 
As a gag again, lie mentioned that 
writer Jimmy Testa, composer of the 
“Hula Hoop”, might write a song 
about it. Sure enough, two days later 
a waxing of “Song Of The Dugongs” 
by Jimmy Martin (really Jimmy Tes- 
ta) was brought up to Randle, and to 
go along with the gag, he played it 
several times. 

Lee Pincus, of Geo. Pincus Music, 
travelling in the area, heard it, liked 
it, bought it and sold the master to 
George Goldner of Gone Records. Pin- 
cus reports that action on the song- 
in Cleveland is tremendous. 

Randle still argues it’s a gag. 

Marks Tunes In 
Victor Xmas P rogram 

NEW YORK — There’s a St. Ni- 
cholas song by Johnny (“Rudolph 
The Red-Nosed Reindeer”) Marks in 
each of the four albums slated by 
RCA Victor for top promotion this 
Christmas, with a free 45 EP with 
one song from each album. 

The albums are Harry Belafonte 
with “I Heard the Bells on Christ- 
mas Day”, Perry Como with “Ru- 
dolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, the 
Ames Bros, with “The Night Before 
Christmas Song” and Christmas Hol- 
idays at Radio City Music Hall with 
“Rudolph”. 

In addition, “Rudolph” is represen- 
ted in seven other albums, and “The 
Night Before Christmas Song” in two 
others, all part of this year’s pro- 
motion. 

Release of singles has not yet been 
announced. 

New Sampler LP Idea 

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA — 
W&G Records, exclusive Australia- 
New Zealand distributors of West- 
minster, Esoteric and Counterpoint 
Records, has released a special deal- 
er-client sampler containing excerpts 
from 24 W&G classical disks, mostly 
from the aforementioned catalogs. 

The sampler is supplied to dealers, 
free of charge, to be loaned out to 
their regular and known clients, to- 
gether with a special printed order 
bearing details and catalog numbers 
of each disk introduced on the sam- 
pler. Loaned for a period of 7 to 10 
days, the prospective disk buyer re- 
turns the sampler with the completed 
order form. 

The sampler, which includes nar- 
rative intros to each selection by pop- 
ular Australian announcer John Mor- 
gan, is packaged in attractive covers, 
which carry reproductions and full 
deails of each of the 24 LP’s from 
which the musical extracts are taken.

through three principal full-color dis- 
play pieces and full-page black and 
white advertisements. 

The first of the three posters pro- 
motes the new Brahms Piano Con- 
certo No. 2 album. The die-cut dis- 
play combines both art and photo- 
grapic illustrations. A second poster, 
also die-cut and in full color, is a card 
for the new Sir Thomas Beecham 
three-record set of “The Salomon 
Symphonies.” The third display is for 
Boris Christoff’s “Operatic Arias.” 
The distinctive advertising, to appear 
in a number of national publications,

sic artists’ recording under the Cap- 
itol-EMI banner. These include con- 
ductors Efrem Kurtz, Rudolph Kem- 
pe, Sir Eugene Goossens, Anatole 
Fistoulari, Anthony Collins, Sir

Montenegro To Screen 
Material For 20th-Fox 


NEW YORK — Henry Onorati, pres- 
ident of 20th-Fox Records, last week 
announced that Hugo Montenegro, 
musical director, has been assigned to 
do screening of all publishers’ ma- 
terial submitted in addition to his 
other duties. This has been made 
necessary because of 20th-Fox’s in- 
creased activity at the recording level. 
Lou Del Guercio will also continue 
to sift material. 

Onorati announced that Tuesday 
will be set aside as publishers’ day. 

Following up his appointment of 
Norman Wieland last week as mer- 
chandise manager, Onorati stated 
that Wieland will also service all of 
20th-Fox’ foreign licenses. Wieland’s 
other duties include advertising, sales 
promotion, and distributor contact. 

Wayne Elected Executive 
Secretary of SOMAC 


NEW YORK — Bernie Wayne has 
been elected Executive Secretary of 
SOMAC, the Society Of Music Au- 
thors & Composers. Wayne is a vet- 
eran of the music business as a com- 
poser, conductor and arranger. The 
announcement was made last week by 
Larry Coleman, president of SOMAC. 

Eleanor Steele, formerly with Mc- 
Cann-Erickson and TV Age, has been 
elected director of public relations by 
the association. 

Coral Issues Disk With 
Three Different Endings 


NEW YORK — Coral Records re- 
leased the first triple-track record 
last week, a single dubbed “Tommy, 
Richard And Harry” by Dick Jacobs 
and the ork with a vocal by Peggy 
Powers. The record features three 
different endings which come as a 
complete surprise due to the fact that 
it is impossible to pre-select any spe- 
cific ending (the stylus, by chance, 
attaches itself to any one of three 
tracks). 

Coral plans strong promotion and 
exploitation on the disk, which the 
record company considers a “natural” 
deejay item. 


RCA Victor Sets 
Melachrino Tie-In 


NEW YORK — To promote Mela- 
chrino’s six steady selling mood al- 
bums, RCA Victor has set up a joint 
advertising and promotion campaign 
with Botany 500, manufacturers of 
menswear, it was announced last week 
by W. I. Alexander, Manager, Adver- 
tising, Publicity and Promotion. The 
tie-in coincides with Melachrino’s first 
American concert tour which got un- 
der way last week and which will take 
him to 40 cities, including Philadel- 
phia, Chicago and Cleveland. 

RCA Victor is preparing a special 
45 EP Melachrino highlighter record 
for distribution through approxi- 
mately 6,000 Botany 500 retail out- 
lets. The record contains six complete 
selections from each of the following 
Melachrino LP’s: “Lisbon At Twi- 
light,” “Strauss Waltzes,” ‘Under 
Western Skies,” “Music For Dining,” 
“Music For Relaxation” and “Music 
For Reading.” 

As part of the collaboration, RCA 
Victor will run national ads in Es- 
quire, The New Yorker and Living For 
Young Homemakers. A network TV 
commercial and network radio spots 
on Monitor will also sell Melachrino. 
In addition, RCA Victor is preparing 
a four-color window display, a four- 
color counter piece, local radio spots, 
and special D. J. material. 

In addition to distributing the Mel- 
achrino highlighter, Botany 500 will 
run extensive local newspaper adver- 
tising and will make window displays, 
streamers and other point-of-sale ma- 
terial. 

Melachrino will make his first 
American television appearance on the 
Steve Allen Show on Sunday, Novem- 
ber 2nd. One of the best-selling art- 
ists on the RCA Victor label, Mela- 
chrino and his albums — which estab- 
lished the popular “Music For 

series — are now reaching the two-mil- 
lion sales mark. 

Swedish Publishing Firm 
Acquires Silhouette Catalogue 


NEW YORK — Multitone, the pub- 
lishing firm which is owned jointly by 
four of Sweden’s largest record com- 
panies, Metronome, Karusell, Decca 
and Philips, has acquired Scandina- 
vian rights of Quincy Jones’ Silhou- 
ette Music catalog. This includes 
more than a hundred jazz originals 
by Quincy Jones, Ernie Wilkins, Jul- 
ian Adderley, Horace Silver, Dizzy 
Gillespie and other well known writ- 
ers. 

The Multitone partners control most 
U. S. recordings of this material and 
will release and push these in Scan- 
dinavia. In addition several versions 
will be recorded in Sweden. Quincy 
Jones has cut an LP with the big 
Harry Arnold band for Metronome in 
Stockholm. This is presently the num- 
ber one selling LP in Sweden. It will 
be released in the U. S. on EmArcy 
next month. 

With the great interest for jazz in 
Scandinavia several of the Silhouette 
tunes are expected to reach pop hit 
status over there. For instance Hor- 
ace Silver’s “Doodlin’ ” and Cannon- 
ball Adderley’s “Sermonette” are al- 
ready reported moving well. 

Multitone has also acquired Amer- 
ican pop material from Trinity Music, 
Towme Music and Hecht-Lancaster & 
Buzzell. 

All deals have been made through 
Claes Dahlgren of Multitone’s New 
Yoi-k office, Orion Development Cor- 
poration.

NEW YORK: 


The tag of ‘Audio Engineer turned recording star’ 
belongs to young Mike Figlio, who is employed at 
the Regent Sound Recording Studios in New York. 
On the evening of Sept. 12th, Mike was engineering 
a wax session for a group which was doing a tape on 
some original tunes, one of which he co-cleffed, “How 
Do I Know”. While in the control room he was heard, 
singing along with the group, by Henry Payson of 
Payson Records. Minutes later Mike found himself 
behind the mike in the studio as the featured singer. 
Director of Sales and Sales Promotion Joe Antel, re- 
leased the disk for national distribution last week. . . . 
Members of the disk industry received cigars recently, 
along with a cute card honoring a ‘new release’ from 
the house of Abner. The card read as follows; Label- 
Afcner, Artists — Dorothy and Abner, Title — Diane, 
Number-2 and Date Sept. 17th, 1958. Congrats to the 
Vee-Jay-Abner prexy, Ewart Abner and Dorothy. The 
diskery, meanwhile, is going strong with a flock of releases. Included are 
Jerry Butler and the Impressions’ Abner two-mart, chart-rider, “Come Back 
My Love” and “Love Me”, Gene Allison’s “Im A Fool For Wanting You”, 
Jimmy Reed’s “I’m Gonna Get My Baby” and “Odds And Ends” and Wade 
Flemons’ “Here I Stand”, all on Vee-Jay. . . . Don Robey notes from Houston, 
Texas that his outfit is already blazing with two new special Duke releases, 
“Teen-Age Love” and “If (I Could Be With You)” by Miss Lavell and Long 
Tall Lester’s “All Because Of You” and “Working Man”. He adds that there’ll 
be more fuel in the “money-fire’ with the addition of Buddy Ace’s “Beyond 
The Rainbow” and “Angel Boy”, Paul Perryman’s “Just To Be Close To You” 
and “While You Wait”, both on Duke, and Raful Neal’s Peacock pairing of 
“Sunny Side Of Love” and “Crying Hard”. . . . Apollo reports big sales on 
Mahalia Jackson’s LP, “Just As I Am”. . . . Keen Records, currently tearing 
up the charts with Sam Cooke’s “Win Your Love For Me” and “Almost In 
Your Arms”, out with a new one by the “This Is The Night” boys, The 
Valiants. Tunes are “Please Wait My Love” and “Frieda, Frieda.” . . . 

Stan Feldman and Ed Portnoy, of Ivy Records, tell us that they’re really 
swinging with 3 of their masters, “Jeannie”, by The Unique Teens on Han- 
over, “Darling Can’t You Tell”, by the Clusters on Tee Gee and “When I 
Found You”, by Bobby Baron on APT. . . . Teddi King into the American 
Hotel, Miami Beach for one week, starting Nov. 2. . . . The Plurals, Wagner 
Records’ new vocal combo, are set to appear, this Sunday, with Danny Styles, 
“The Cat Man”, at his weekly “Red Bank Ballroom” record hop. Danny’s 
disk show can be heard over the WNJR-Newark, N. J. 
airwaves. . . . The Four Voices, currently appearing- 
on the Peter Lind Hayes, ABC-TV network show, into 
the San Su San Club, L. I., for the Oct. 31st weekend. 

. . . Nashville publisher and recording studio owner, 
Kenny Marlow, reports top DJ reaction to a new Hi 
Records’ release featuring former Ted Mack winner, 
Mark Taylor. Marlow’s pubbery owns both tunes. “My 
Greatest Dream” and ‘ Linda Lou”, the latter cletfed 
by Johnny Bragg of “Walkin’ In The Rain” fame. The 
master was produced at the Fidelity studios and Mar- 
low adds that free deejay samples and ‘made to order’ 
promotional spots by Mark are available by writing 
to Marlow at 420-A Broadway, Nashville, Tenn. . . . 
Lou Carter, the versatile, singing-writing cab-driver 
is set to entertain, indefinitely, at George Wein’s 
“ Story ville Club” in Boston. . . . The Hightower Bros., 
a spiritual quintet ranging in age from 9 thru 18 
years old (their pop plays piano for the crew) have been signed by Herman 
Lubinsky for his new Gospel Record label. Also pacted and recorded by 
Herman, on his Savoy label, are The Caravans, well known vocal combo 
which clicked under the United banner some years ago. Jimmy Jones, lead 
bass of the Harmonizing Four, top flight vocal crew, has signed with Savoy 
as a single and’ll be cut as a pop star. . . . The Rover Boys are set for the 
Oct. 27th Dick Clark ABC-TV’er. . . . Bob Burrell, of Columbia, thrilled with 
the reaction to the label’s “Come Prima” by the Radar. Quartet. Burrell sez 
the disk is breaking in a number of territories. . . . Promotion man Morty 
Wax, plugging away on a host of disks, real happy with the terrific deejay 
reception, especially in the New York area, to the Larry Martin-Robert Ash- 
ley Mercury slicing, “Comic Strip Rock And Roll”. He’s also working on 
“Jerrilee” and “Ballad Of A Happy Heart”, by The Perris on Madison, 
“There’ll Be No Goodbyes”, The Five Delights on Unart, and the chart-riding, 
“Tears From My Heart”, by Thurston Harris on Aladdin. . . . Judy Scott into 
the “Elegante”, Brooklyn, for one week, commencing Nov. 12th. . . . Baton 
Records has released two versions of the same tune, “Pajama Party”, and 
prexy Sol Rabinowitz feels that initial distrib action indicates a big national 
sale for both. One is a male vocal by Bobby Phillips and his Rockets. The 
other is a duet-female offering by the Stewart Twins. Backing the Phillips’ 
outing is Noble “Thin Man” Watts, and his Rhythm Sparks, doing “The 
Creep”. Flip of the Stewarts’ waffle is “Daddy-O”. . . . Julius Dixon, President 
of Deb Records, on the phone to advise that Chanels’ bow on Deb, already 
kicking up a fuss in the New York vicinity, has been taken over for national 
distribution by ABC-Paramount. . . . Buddy Friedlander, United Artists Na- 
tional Sales Mgr., announces the release of Billy Barnes, “If You But Knew”. 
“It’s a beautiful ballad”, notes Buddy, “that’ll catapult the artist into a star 
overnight”. Billy is a Roy Hamilton discoveree. U.A. execs are also hot about 
Enzo Stuarti’s “Come Prima” and “My Blue Heaven”. Joe Leahy handled the 
session. The diskery made its stereo bow, this week, with its release of 8 LP’s. 
. . . Harry Finfer, Jamie and Guyden boss, reports that the third Duane Eddy 
release, “Cannonball”, will make it 3-in-a-row for the artist (“Rebel Rouser” 
and “Ramrod”). Two days after the session was cut it was previewed on the 
Dick Clark show and it broke immediately. Harry adds that orders have al- 
ready passed the 200,000 mark. . . . The Baby Washington, Neptune waxing 
of “The Time” is starting to get the ‘cover treatment’. Joan Shaw has the 
tune out on the ABC-Paramount label and there are more expected during 




MIKE FIGLIO 


mm 

the week. . . . Julius La Rosa, who last week was seen on the Dinah Shore 
NBC-TV show singing his Roulette debut, “Until He Gets A Girl”, returned 
East for a deejay promotion trip. He’ll fly to Boston and Pittsburgh and then 
do a Nov. 1st repeat on the Shore offering. Also back in town are the label’s 
A&R team, Hugo & Luigi, with a handful of hot Jimmie Rodgers platters, 
predicting that Jimmie’s next one’ll top them all. Jimmy Nabors, new Roulette 
wax artist, cut short his European trip to return home and plug his initial 
slicing, “There’s No Tomorrow”. Jimmy hails from Chattanooga, Tenn. where 
he works at WAPO. Henry Droz, Arc Distrib in Detroit, infos that the new 
Playmates single, “Beep, Beep”, which was taken from their new Roulette LP, 
“At Home With The Playmates”, is taking off in the ‘motor city’. The tune 
is about a race between a Nash Rambler and a Cadillac. He also reports 
strong sales indications on “Girl Of My Dreams” by Tony Brent, “Bad Girl” 
by Valerie Carr and Jimmy Bowen’s “Blue Moon”. . . . Danny Davis, delirious 
with the action on his Cabot waxing of “Trumpet Cha-Cha-Cha.” He notes that 
the disk at Portem Distrib has been going at a 1,000-a-day pace in the order 
dept. Danny and his crew hold forth at the “Golden Slipper” in L. I. . . . 
Received the new Sun “Sun-Liners” and “Phillips International Scandal Sheet” 
from editor Barbara Barnes. In the Sun news are plugs on Roscoe Gordon’s 
“Sally Jo” and “Torro”, Sonny Burgess’ instrumental debut, “Thunderbird” 
and “Itchy”. Jerry Lee Lewis’ “Break Up” and Johnny Cash’s EP, “Johnny 
Cash Sings Hank Williams”. In the Phillips sheet are nice -words about 
Mickey Milan’s “Somehow Without You” and “The Picture”, The Cliff Thomas 
Trio’s (Cliff, Barbara and Ed) “Sorry I Lied” and Lee Mitchell’s “The Frog”. 
By the way best wishes to Barbara Barnes, who celebrates her 25th birthday 
on the 25th of this month. . . . Savoy has picked up a Winley master featur- 
ing Little Anthony, of “Tears On My Pillow” note, doing “You”. 

CHICAGO: 

Deejay Bill (Hoss) Allen “galloped” into town 
recently to call on manufacturers and visit with old 
friends. “Hoss” holds sway on radio station WLAC 
in Nashville. . . . Abner, Vee Jay-Abner Records, 
is prepping releases of recent waxings of The Dells 
and The Spaniels. Jimmy Reed appeared at the Rock- 
land Palace in N’Yawk for his initial engagement 
there, and really knocked ’em in the aisles, according 
to Abner. He returns to Rockland later this month. 
Prexy Jimmie Bracken and a&r chief Cal Carter en- 
planed to New York to cut a session on Lee Diamond 
and The Upsetters. . . . Chess a&r chief, Dave 
Usher, tells us he supervised 2 waxing dates for 
Sandy Moss’ new' LP. He already completed one side 
(a string recording). Dave informs us that Chess 
recently pacted a Wilmington, Delaware cop, Lem 
Winchester, who tickles mean Vibes. Although Lem 
grew up in the shadow of the late, great trumpeter 
Clifford Brown, he developed an attachment to the vibraharp. Dave scouted 
him at the Newport Jazz Festival and immediately signed him to a contract. 
Dave reports that much mail addressed to Chess for the Argo label comes 
to them in this manner, “Audio Odyssey by Argo”! Which happens to be the 
slogan for Argo. Len and Phil Chess are elated over immediate action on 
Dale Hawkins’ newie “A House, A Car, And A Wedding Ring.” . . . WJJD 
deejay Del Clark emceed a benefit fashion show last week, and immediately 
took a fancy to “Miss Illinois”, modelovely Marianne Gaba. . . . Columbia’s

concerts last Sunday, at Orchestra Hall. Errol, who tickles a mean keyboard 
was accompanied by brass and percussion. . . . Vic Faraci, M.S. Distribs, re- 
ports that Gary Crosby has a big one “Judy Judy” on the Verve label. Vic is 
awaiting Roy Hamilton’s new release on Epic. The Oxtones, who record for

Faye’s “Marty’s Morgue” show, both via WBKB-TV. . . . Paul Glass and Earl 
Glicken are bubbling with enthusiasm over the veddy funny Henny Young- 
man album “Horse And Auto Race Game.” This is Youngman’s initial 
effort on wax. Earl stressed the fact that Henny gave full cooperation in 
promoting the LP. ,

Hard Work? 



HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. — Harvey 
Geller, west coast rep for Korwin 
Music, is seen here demonstrating his 
latest plug tune “The Scene Of The 
Crime” to Mary Moore, prima bal- 
lerina of the Eddie Fisher Show.

Hideaway Contest 


MINNEAPOLIS — Jather Distribut- 
ing and station WTCN, both of this 
city, joined hands in a promotional 
contest based on the hit Four Esquires 
deck on Paris, “Hideway”, which 
Jather distributes in this area. 

The contest involved listener loca- 
tion of a “hideaway” in the WTCN 
studios, which could only be uncovered 
by clues within the lyrics of the 
“Hideaway” waxing (performed every 
hour by WTCN). Top prizes in- 
cluded a hi-fi set, and a transistor 
radio. The station was flooded to such 
an extent with phone calls, that rules 
to the contest had to be simplified. 

Frank Hobbs, promotional con- 
sultant to Jather, worked the deal 
out with Jack Taylor, Jather head, 
and Sev Whitman, WTCN program 
director. According to Hobbs, sales 
on “Hideaway” waxing have increased 
appreciably in the Minneapolis area 
as a result of the contest. 


Westin Named U.S. Rep 


I NEW YORK — Karl Otto Westin, 
; Broadway and music columnist for

resentative for Wilhe’m Hansen

diska Musikforlaget, (Stockholm).

scores and W’estin & Co. music enter- 
prises. Locally, he lists music direc- 
torships for his Empire State School 
of Music and the Linden (N.J.) Music 
Center, and is currently pushing mer- 
chandising plans for his own trans- 
posing gadget, Magi-Kord. 

As U.S. rep, W^estin will handle 
reciprocal agency agreements between 
the Hansen and Nordiska companies 
I and American diskeis and publishers.

Roulette Inaugurates LP 
Subscription Service 

NEW YORK — Roulette Records 
last week announced the instituting of 
an album subscription service for ra- 
dio stations, disk jockeys, program 
directors and record librarians. The 
album service encompasses Roulette 
albums under the label’s divisions, 
Tico, Roost, Rama and Gee and the 
newly formed subsidiary, Co-Star 
Records. 

The subscription program offers 
three separate plans: 1) an “Annual 
Service of Newly Released Albums,” 
which guarantees a minimum of fifty 
albums for the year at a cost of forty- 
five dollars; 2) a Basic Album Li- 
brary of fifty albums already re- 
leased and now in the catalogs. The 
subscriber can select the fifty albums 
and the cost of this service is forty 
dollars. 3) The third service being 
offered is Basic LP Library No. 2 
which enables the subscriber to choose 
any quantity of albums of less than 
fifty LP’s but a minimum of ten LP’s 
from the existing catalogs. Cost of 
this service is $1.00 per album. A'sub- 
scriber may purchase any number of 
services desired. 

A special mailing of the contracts, 
a newly printed catalog and cover let- 
ter was sent last week to thousands of 
radio stations, as well as to the Rou- 
lette distributors, salesmen and pro- 
motion men who will join in the drive 
to sign up subscribers. 

Bud Katzel, Director of Public Re- 
lations and Publicity, stated, “This 
new subscription service is a direct 
outgrowth of countless requests from 
radio stations all over the country 
who have written requesting such a 
service. The requests in turn are a 
direct result of our continually ex- 
panding album program.”

Benny Goes R&R 


New Stereo Tape 

HOLLYWOOD— HIFITAPES, a di- 
vision of High Fidelity Recordings, 
last week issued its first 3% IPS four 
track stereo tape for the retail market 
in an effort to bring tape prices in 
line with stereo disk prices, it was 
announced by label prexy Richard 
Vaughn. 

Six releases will intro the new tape 
speed line which will retail for $7.95, 
as opposed to the $12.95 price for 
7V2 IPS stereo tape packages. 
Vaughn stated that half the amount 
of tape is needed for the same amount 
of music with the 3%" speed. Tape is 
played completely through, then 
flipped over and played in the opposite 
direction for more music. 

The first releases are “George 
Wright Goes South Pacific,” “George 
Wright Flight to Tokyo,” Arthur Ly- 
man’s “Taboo” and “Bwana A,” “The 
Surfers on the Rocks,” and Harry 
Zimmerman’s “Big Dixie.” 



HOLLYWOOD, CAL. — Jack Benny 
stepped into the teenage field, for an 
evening anyway, when he guest 
starred Arwin’s popular rock ’n rollers 
Jan & Arnie on his television show 
Sunday, October 19th. 

Pictured from left to right are 
Benny, Arnie, Joe Lubin who discover- 
ed the kids for Arwin, and Jan. Their 
latest release is “The Beat That Can’t 
Be Beat.”

Award o’ the Week 


“PLEASE WAIT MY LOVE” (2:00) [Hermosa BMI — B. Jones] 
“FRIEDA, FRIEDA” (2:20) [Higuera BMI— B. Jones] 

THE VALIANTS (Keen 3-4026) 

# The Valiants, the group that broke thru the ‘hit barrier’ with their 
initial Keen pressing, “This Is The Night”, should be back up there 
with their newest offering, “Please Wait My Love”. It’s a beautiful, fish- 
beat romantic pleader, from the ‘too young’ school, featuring a stellar bit 
of warbling by the lead vocal. The Bumps Blackwell ork is responsible 
for a most attractive musical backdrop. Reverse portion, “Frieda, 
Frieda”, is a frenzied rock ’n roller done up in ‘Little Richard’ style. It’s 
the top half, tho, for the big, two-market coin. 


“HICCUPS” (2:06) [Venice BMI— A. Hazen] 

“MOOSE ON THE LOOSE” (2:08) [Fairway BMI— Aleman, Stryker] 
RODDY JACKSON (Specialty 649) 

• Roddy Jackson and his band ‘pull out all the stops’ on both ends 
of their newest Specialty release. They’re two pieces of wax dynamite 
that the artist explodes withe lectrifying force. On one side Jackson 
complains that everytime he wants to kiss his baby he gets the “Hic- 
cups”. On the flipside, the panic is on ’cause there’s a “Moose On The 
Loose”. It’s a sheer delight the way the crew stops the trigger-quick 
pace to harmonize on ‘he climbed a tree’. An all-market pairing with 
the sales and smiles guaranteed. 


“PAJAMA PARTY” [Conley BMI— Slay, Crew] 

“THE CREEP” (2:11) [Dare BMI— Watts] 

BOBBY PHILLIPS/NOBLE "THIN MAN" WATTS (Baton 262) 

• Baton could be all over the charts in the near future with both ends 
of this pairing. On one end, Bobby Phillips and his Rockets intro on the 
label with a striking new Bob Crew-Frank Slay rocker tabbed “Pajama 
Party”. It’s ultra-commercial, r&r teen-fare. The other lid is strictly 
instrumental. It features Noble “Thin Man” Watts and his Rhythm 
Sparks, of “Hard Times (The Slop)” note, on a rockin’ shuffler titled 
“The Creep”. Watch ’em both take off. 


“THE REASON” (2:51) [Draxon-Freida BMI— J. Dixon] 
“SKIDDILY DOO” (2:49) [Draxon-Earl BMI— J. Dixon] 

THE CHANELS (Deb 500) 

# The Chanels’ Deb debut should prove to be money in the bank for 
all concerned. The songsters come across with heartfelt conviction, 
especially the lead thrush, on a touching opus labeled, “The Reason”. The 
waxing packs an emotional beat-ballad punch and could score in both 
pop and r&b circles. “Skiddily Doo”, on the bottom waffle, is a lighter 
rock view by the vocal team. “The Reason”, however, carries all the 
disk’s prospects. 


“WILD CHERRY” (2:21) [Excellorec BMI— Washington, West] 

“BE KIND” (2:13) [Excellorec BMI — Washington, West] 

LEROY WASHINGTON (Excello 2144) 

• Look for Leroy Washington to lead the Excello label into the r&b 
area of ‘hitsville’. The chanter does a sock selling job with a torrid, 
romantic blues affair labeled “Wild Cherry”. Hard-hitting instrumental 
assist on a southern territorial ‘natural’ that could step out on a national 
level. On the lower half, Leroy slows down the pace as he injects loads 
of feeling into another steady beat, southern blues thumper tagged “Be 
Kind”. Strong side but heavily overshadowed by the upper end. 


iiihiiiiiiii 

VITO PRICE & COMPANY 
(Argo 5307) 

B “SWINGING THE LOOP” (2:35) 
[Arc BMI — V. Price] Argo re- 
leases one from Vito Price & Com 
pany’s LP, that’s sure to make the 
jazz-inclined platter spinners want to 
take a second look. It’s a wonderful 
swinger with the able Price sax front 
and center. 


f«, “TIME AFTER TIME” (2:40) 
[Sinatra Songs ASCAP — J. Styne, 
S. Cahn] This half the lazy sax-work 
is featured on an ear-arresting revival 
of the evergreen. Also from the Price 
album. 

DOC STARKES 
(Modern Sound 6908) 

n “ROCKIN’ TO SCHOOL” [Banks 
D"TBMI — Turner, Segman] Doc 
Starkes turns in a teen-appealing 
vocal treatment on an enticing strol- 
ler that the kids are sure to take a 
liking to. Fetching background sup- 
plied by the Nite Riders. Deck has 
what it takes to break thru on the r&r 
scene. 


B “LOVE ME LIKE CRAZY” 
[Banks BMI — J. Crawford] Not 
to be overlooked is the tantalizing 
rocker that. Starkes and the crew 
drive out on the flipside. 

EARL WASHINGTON 
(Checker 905) 

B , “MISERLOU” [Colonial BMI— 
IIt Tauber, Wise, Rubanis, Leeds] 
The Earl Washington outfit injects 
new life into the intriguing oldie that 
Jan August rode to ‘record heights’ 
with a good while back. A chorus 
sings, sans lyric, on a lid with great 
two-market possibilities. Keep close 
tabs on it. 

fi, “WOLF CALL” [Arc BMI— E. 
V ' Washington] The familiar ‘Wolf’ 
whistle intros this swinging newie by 
Washington and the crew. Another 
tremendous instrumental offering with 
the vocalists interjecting the tune’s 
title a few times along the way. 


RICHARD BERRY 
(Flip 339) 

B , “BESAME MUCHO” (2:09) 
D"r [Peer Int’l BMI— Skylar, Velaz- 
quez] A terrific cha-cha reprieve of 
the tune that Andy Russell will long 
be remembered for is dished up by 
deep-toned Richard Berry, along with 
a pop-oriented ork and choral assist. 
The current crop of teensters could 
help spin the song to the top once 
again. 

B “DO I DO I” (2:12) [Limax BMI 
— R. Berry] This half Berry puts 
his heart into his delivery of a potent 
romantic offering set to a fish-beat 
ballad pace. They’re both dual-mart 
threats. 


MISS LA-VELL 
(Duke 198) 

B, “TEEN-AGE LOVE” (2:11) 
O'* [Lion BMI— Smith, White] Duke 
comes up with a new femme song 
stylist who could very well have an 
r&r click on her initial outing for 
the diskery. It’s a free-wheeling rock- 
er that puts the exciting talents of 
Miss La-Veil in the spotlight. Driving 
choral and instrumental support. 

B “IF (I COULD BE WITH YOU” 
(2:35) [Lion BMI— Smith, White] 
The lark squeezes out every ounce of 
emotion on this fishbeat romancer. 
Forceful wailing on a powerful cou- 
pler. 


luiimiiiimiiaiuiuiiiiiiuiiiiiiiiiiii 

THE HEARTS 
(J & S 1626) 

B “LIKE, LATER BABY” (2:23) 
[Zells BMI — Carn, Milligans, 
Sanders] The Hearts, w r ho cashed in 
regionally, a short while back, with 
“Lonely Nights”, make a strong bid 
for national hitdom with their J&S 
bow. The artists engage is some de- 1 
lectable banter as they swing out on 
this up tempo shuffler with novelty- 
love lyrics. 

B “I WANT YOUR LOVE TO- 
NIGHT” (2:08) [Zells BMI— 
Sanders] This end the crew handily 
reels off a rafter-shakin’ romantic 
opus. Deck really moves on the vocal 
and instrumental end. Both halves i 
oughta keep the boxes hoppin’ day 
and night. 


JAMES BROWN 
(Federal 12337) 

B “TELL ME WHAT I DID 
D+ WRONG” (2:18) [Wisto BMI— 
J. Brown] James Brown should be in 
there battling for high chart honors 
with his potent rendition of this up 
tempo lover’s lament. As usual The I 
Famous Flames back in wdnning J 
fashion. 


B , “TRY ME” (2:28) [Wisto BMI— 
O' + j. Brown] This end Brown, along 
with the Flames, emotes with touch- 
ing sincerity on a sti’ong rock-a- 
ballad romantic pleader. Splendid pair- 
ing. 


ROSCO GORDON 
(Sun 305) 

B, “SALLY JO” (2:02) [Hi Lo BMI 
D ■ — Phillips, Gordon] Here’s a cap-r 
tivating name-titled tune tailor-made 
for the teenagers in all markets. Han- 
dling the vocal chores in colorful 
style is Rosco Gordon. Fetching, up 
tempo dance beat is gonna set the kids 
in motion. 


B , “TORRO” (2:40) [Jerry ASCAP 
O'* — Gordon, Tavres] Under portion , 
should make for real interesting pro- 
gramming. It creates the atmosphere 
of a bull ring on a sort of sort of 
r&r pasa doble. It’s an instrumental 
except for a few bars of Spanish 
thrown in. Watch it. Could be a smash. 


THE ROBERTA (Religious) 

MARTIN SINGERS 
(Savoy 4103) 

B, “GOD SPECIALIZES” [Martin 
B ‘ Studio BMI — Martin] The Rob- 
erta Martin Singers are sure to in- 
crease their fold with this penetrating 
Savoy release. A dramatic, slow paced 
slicing delivered with great feeling 
by the outfit. 

B “I FOUND HIM” [Martin Studio 
BMI — Martin] A beautiful song 
of devotion, taken at a pleasant lilt, 
is treated to another heartfelt read- 
ing by the group. Excellent pairing. 


THE GOSPEL TONES (Religious) 
(Gospel 1003) 

D , “ROLL JORDAN ROLL” [Plan- 
Dt emar BMI — P. David] The lead 
voice of the Gospel Tones handles the 
position with assui-ance on this ex- 
uberant gospel handclapper. A spir- 
ited offering that should ring up a 
healthy sale in the market. 

B “HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN 
SINCE YOU PRAYED” [Volun- 
teer BMI — Martin] The tempo is 
changed to a slow lilt, breaking into 
a quick beat at mid-point, but the 
high quality of the disk remains the 
same. It’s a powerful message stir- 
ringly offered by the group.

HI Expects 7th Annual D.J. 
est To Be “Biggest Ever” 


NASHVILLE, TENN.— “The big- 
gest and best,” says WSM’s General 
Manager Bob Cooper, outlining plans 
for the Seventh Annual Country and 
Western Disk Jockey Convention 
scheduled for Friday and Saturday, 
November 21-22. 

In addition to the Carnival atmos- 
phere that has been an integral part 
of all of WSM’s deejay jamborees, the 
WSM officials, taking into considera- 
tion the tremendous strides Country 
Music has taken as a national form 
of entertainment, have included in 
this year’s roster of events a number 
of special topics of interest to the 
country deejays and to the industry as 
a whole which will be conducted in 
panel fashion. 

The panel discussions will cover 
industry and individual disk jockey 
topics including “What You Can Do 
To Make Country Music More Profi- 
table for Your Station,” “Successful 
Country Music Promotions,” “Better 
Methods for Programming Country 
Music,” “What Is Country Music?” 
and “The Growth of Country Music 
and Its Place in Your Future,” and 
“Personality Is a Real Programming 
Plus.” 

“D.” Kilpatrick, Manager of the 
Grand Ole Opry, has been appointed 
head of the Festival Committee and 
is working up a roster of top indus- 
try names to participate in the panel 
discussion. 

Another aspect of the Seventh An- 
nual Festival which will add tremen- 
dous color and prestige to the event 
will be the events honoring the one 
thousandth performance of the famed 
Grand Ole Opry which occurs at al- 
most the same time. Efforts are be- 
ing made to bring back former mem- 
bers of the Grand Ole Opry cast dur- 
ing its 3J years of broadcasting and 
have them take part in a real old- 
fashioned reunion. 

The expansion of the over-all Festi- 
val program this year will be for the 
entertainment and benefit of the more 
than 2500 country and music disk 
jockeys which WSM expects will at- 
tend the Festival this year. More 
than 3000 invitations have been sent 
out, and, from the early reaction, WSM 
feels the Festival will top last year’s 
record attendance. 

The mixing of business and pleas- 
ure via the increase in topics of indus- 
try-wide interest has been brought 
about by virtue of the tremendous 
impact country and western music 
has had on the entertainment world 
as a whole, according to Bob Cooper. 
“With Nashville being the home of 
Country Music, as well as most of the 
top talent, and with the industry hav- 
ing grown to a stupendous $50,000,000 
volume yearly, our Festival, hosting 
as it does the country and western 
and disk jockeys who have made the 
success of the industry possible, will 
attempt to pass on to those deej ays 


the benefit of the experience of some 
of the great names in our type of 
music. However,” he concluded, “the 
original theme of the Festival, a gath- 
ering of friends and colleagues for a 
little fun and frolic will still remain 
an important part of the proceedings.” 

As in previous years the major 
record companies will again partici- 
pate as hosts to various functions at 
the Festival, according to D. Kilpat- 
rick. The non-official festivities begin 
on Friday morning, Nov. 21, when 
Cadence Records will sponsor an 8:00 
a.m. breakfast at the Andrew Jackson 
Hotel Ballroom. At 12:00 noon Fri- 
day, Randy Wood will act as host to 
Festival guests at a Dot record lunch- 
eon again in the Andrew Jackson 
Ballroom. At 5:30 p.m., following 
regularly scheduled activities which 
will be announced in a later release, 
RCA Victor will host a cocktail party 
at the Hermitage Hotel ballroom with 
Jack Burgess and Steve Sholes doing 
the honors. 

Highlight of the evening will be the 
Friday Night Frolics over WSM, a 
live broadcast featuring many of the 
Grand Ole Opry guest stars and the 
following hour will be Mr. D. J., with 
Grant Turner as host. During this 
hour as many visiting disk jocks as 
possible will be featured on the pro- 
gram. 

Also on Friday night the newly 
formed Country Music Association 
will make its inaugural bow with a 
dance for the industry at the Andrew 
Jackson Hotel. Saturday will be a gen- 
eral visiting day with BMI hosting at 
an 8:30 a.m. breakfast. Bob Burton, 
Bob Sour and Frances Williams will 
welcome Festival guests and “Break- 
fast At the Opry” will be the broad- 
cast feature. The Maxwell House 
Hotel will be the scene of the action. 

Columbia Records will have a Kof- 
fee Klatch Saturday morning at 8:00 
a.m. and will host a lunch at the Max- 
well House Ballroom at 12:00 noon. 
Bob Burrell will be on hand. 

WSM will take over at 4:30 p.m. 
Saturday with the WSM Reception 
and Buffet. The station staff and 
management will act as hosts at the 
Maxwell House Ballroom. 

The piece de resistance of the day 
and the highlight of the Festival will 
be the historic 33rd Anniversary of 
the Grand Ole Opry from 7:30 to mid- 
night from the famed Ryman Audi- 
torium. This will be of particular in- 
terest because the Festival will salute 
during the period the 1,000th Grand 
Ole Opry. More than 175 Opry stars 
and sidesmen will be on hand for this 
gala occasion to visit with the deejays. 

All in all, D. Fitzpatrick feels that 
the 1958 version of the Festival will 
be the most memorable of them all to 
date.

Hank Thompson Signs 
New Capitol Pact 

HOLLYWOOD — Even though his 
present contract with Capitol Records, 
has over two months to go, Hank 
Thompson last week signed a new 
long-term pact with the label as a 
singer-guitarist with his Brazos Val- 
ley Boys, who for many years have 
been voted the number one big west- 
ern band in national popularity polls. 

The Country artists start their new 
contract with Capitol on December 
21, is was announced by Glenn E. 
Wallichs, President of the company. 

Thompson is among the many ex- 
clusive Capitol recording artists to 
have completed more than a decade 
with the label. The popular performer 
inked his first agreement with Cap 
11 years ago this month (October, 
1947). Thompson was signed to the 
label by Artist and Repertoire pro- 
ducer, Lee Gillette. All of Thompson’s 
recording sessions since 1950 have 
been produced by Ken Nelson. 

Stereo In Braille 

CHICAGO — One of the graphic dis- 
plays sales manager Mike Remund 
uses to demonstrate the principles of 
stereo records for Jensen phonograph 
needles is a magnified putty model 
of the grooves of typical 78, 33 and 
stereo disks. In Minneapolis at an 
electronics show, Mike was asked by 
a hi-fi service-man to explain stereo 
and promptly showed the model. 

“Sorry, but I can’t see,” said the 
serviceman, who was blind. And Mike 
then found his model of greatest use 
as he put the serviceman’s hands on 
the raised grooves to show that stereo 
picks up sounds from both sides of 
record grooves for its two speakers. 
It probably was the first time stereo 
has been demonstrated in Braille. 


Two Pats And Porky 



HOLLYWOOD — Porky Chedwick 
and his wife Pat visited Pat Boone 
at Radio Recorders in Hollywood, 
while they were on a two week vaca- 
tion to the West Coast. Porky is a 
DJ on station WAMO in Pittsburgh. 

Jolly Joyce-Bill Haley 
Contract Expired 

NEW YORK— Jolly Joyce of Jolly 
Joyce Agency declared last week that 
his contract with Bill Haley was not 
severed by Haley, as previously re- 
ported, but had expired Sept. 8 after 
four year’s duration. 

According to Joyce, Haley had re- 
quested Joyce to continue booking 
him on spot dates, but Joyce declined 
to continue without an exclusive con- 
tract. 

Joyce announced that Alan Freed 
has renewed his Screen Actor’s Guild 
contract with the Joyce Agency. Joyce 
also stated that the two pictui’es in 
which Freed will star will be shot 
early next year at the Hal Roach 
studios. In addition, Joyce has taken 
over additional attractions for audi- 
toriums-arenas-theatres, including Ol- 
sen & Johnson’s new “Yoek & Roll 
Show Of 1959”; the Applejacks (hit- 
ting with “Mexican Hat Rock” on 
Cameo); Baby Cortez, Joe August; 
and Libby Dean.

Don Pierce, operating Starday Records, country & gospel label, from 
Madison, Tenn., reports good action on his initial releases by Benny Barnes 
and the Stanley Brothers. Sez Don, “There is an obvious need for an indie 
label who can work closely with deejays, distributors, and one-stops on the 
sale of real down to earth country records and it’s encouraging to see the 
acceptance for the new Starday products on Starday’s re-designed bold label, 
which features the artist name and song title in maximum size type.” Pierce 
is trying to develop more liaison between the deejays and the people who 
merchandise country records so that the distributor, one stop and dealers 
will be sure to stock the records that the deejays are pushing. 

Also, Pierce is high on “Three Carburetors” b$ 
Don Carson on Crest which he is handling in the 
Eastern, Central and Southern States. “Wherever the 
record gets played, it sells,” notes Don. 

“That’s The Way I Feel”, Faron Young’s record 
on Capitol is published by Pierce’s Starday Music 
firm and was composed by Roger Miller and George 
Jones. The song is very big in several areas and 
Pierce invites country deejays to write to him at 
Box 115, Madison if they haven’t received their copy. 
Pierce has copies of new releases by the Stanley 
Brothers, Benny Barnes, “Cousin Jody,” Jack King- 
ston, Lonzo and Oscar and Latti Moore, plus an as- 
sortment of C&W instrumental records that are avail- 
able to C&W deejays who haven’t already been 
serviced.

“I’D LIKE TO BE” (2:00) 

[Earl Barton BMI — H. Ashlev] 

JIM REEVES (RCA Victor 7380) ' 

• Jim Reeves continues to roll along at a phenomenal 
pace, piling up one hit after another. His most recent 
addition to his personal honor roll is the chart-topping, 
“Blue Boy”. This week Jim comes thru with another 
Victor pairing that should easily provide the artist 
with more pop-country laurels. On one end the chanter 
delightfully breezes over a sparkling bouncer tabbed 
“Billy Bayou”. On the other half he tenderly caresses 
a charming lilter titled “I’d Like To Be”. Deck has 
a pleasant yuletide effect. Both ends, in addition to 
their smash pop-country potential, should appeal espe- 
cially to the young ’uns. 

“TREASURE OF LOVE” (2:17) 

[Starrite BMI — G. Jones, J. P. Richardson] 

“IF I DON’T LOVE YOU” (1:55) 

[Starrite BMI — G. Jones, J. P. Richardson] 
GEORGE JONES (Mercury 71373) 

• A new George Jones disk hits the wax mart this 
week and it appears as tho both ends are gonna follow 
his current chart-rider, “Nothing Can Stop Me,” right 
up into the hit listings. On one end, a heartwarming 
lilter, the chanter is in a philosophical mood as he ten- 
derly reflects that the “Treasure Of Love” is worth 
more than anything money can buy. And he’s equally 
effective with the bright bouncer on the other half as he 
sings, to his sweetie, “If I Don’t Love You (Grits Ain’t 
Groceries)”. Take your pick. You’ll come up a winner 
with either end of this ‘pure country’ pairing. 


“COUNTRY MUSIC IS HERE TO STAY” (5:08) 
[Bee Gee BMI — F. Husky] 

“STAND UP, SIT DOWN, SHUT YOUR MOUTH” 
(2:09) [Cedarwood BMI— M. Tillis] 

SIMON CRUM (Capitol 4073) 

• Ferlin Husky’s alter-ego, Simon Crum, is a cinch 
to make the jocks, ops and dealers sit up and take 
notice via his latest Capitol coupling. Simon’s aim 
on the top half, a light-hearted, middle tempo ditty, 
is to prove that “Country Music Is Here To Stay”. 
Simon plays all parts in an opening and closing dia- 
logue, dealing with the present c&w music status, 
and his mimicry of the c&w singers is a sheer delight. 
“Stand Up, Sit Down, Shut Your Mouth”, is a tanta- 
lizing rocker with schoolroom lyrics, that’s sure to 
appeal to the teensters in all markets. Terrific coupler. 


“LET ME BE THE ONE TO LOVE YOU” (1:55) 
[Marson BMI — S. James] 

SONNY JAMES (Capitol 4066) 

“SORRY I LIED” (2:13) [Knox BMI— E. Thomas, Jr.] 
CLIFF THOMAS (Phillips 3531) 

“SWEET AND INNOCENT” (2:16) 

[Tree, Tune BMI — Sherrill, Hall] 

“SEEMS TO BE” (2:14) [Acuff-Rose BMI— B. Bryant] 
ROY ORBISON (RCA Victor 7381) 

9 All these have that dual-mart look. (See pop 
reviews). 


MORGAN WINS 
(RCA Victor 7373) 

n . “LET’S GET GOIN’” (2:05) 
B+ [Acuff-Rose BMI — M. Endsley] 
Here’s a bright rock-a-billy entry 
that the Morgan Twins take for a 
refreshing romp. It’s a happy-go- 
lucky love affair that moves along 
in coin-catching style. Sensational 
instrumental backdrop rounds out a 
real commercial side. 

B “WHILE IT LASTED” (2:17) 
[Acuff-Rose BMI — M. Endsley] 

. The boys change the mood and the 
. pace on this end as they softly blend 
, on a pretty waltzer with tear-com- 
: pelling love lyrics. 


FREDDIE HART 
1 (Columbia 41269) 

n . “I’M NO ANGEL” (2:10) [Peer 
D+Int’l BMI— Hart], Freddie Hart, 
‘ supplied with a grade “A” piece of 
j self-penned material proceeds to wrap 
j it up in money-making style. Effec- 
' tive double-tracking by the chanter 
■ as he tells about two people with not- 
j so-perfect pasts. A quick, steady 
r beat musical backdrop rounds out a 
powerful chart entry. 

B “MIDNIGHT DATE” (2:18) 
[Hill & Range BMI— Hart] Flip- 
side Hart warmly grooves, a per- 
suasive, middle beat romantic opus. 

y ■ 

d JUNE WEBB 
e (Hickory 1086) 

B . “FRIENDLY ENEMY” (2:24) 

’ D+ [Tree BMI — S. Arden, D. Dar- 
' den] With a ‘weeping string’ accom- 
paniment June Webb puts her heart 
f into her delivery of a poignant lover’s 
. lilter. Pretty offering that should 
j easily find its way on to the deejays’ 
turntables. 

B “A MANSION ON THE HILL” 
(2:45) [Milene ASCAP— H. Wil- 
s, liams, F. Rose] A find femme revival 
of this touching, middle- beat, Hank 
y W i liams-Fred Rose tune. Excellent 
iil coupler for the ‘straight country’ 
music lovers. 


LARRY BRYANT 
(Bakersfield 100) 

n . “KISS ’EM TWICE” (2:04) [4 
w"> Star Sales BMI— L. Bryant, W. 
S. Stevenson] A brisk waltzer that 
features a friendly bit of advice to 
sweethearts is dished up in ear-ap- 
pealing fashion by Larry Bryant and 
the Dixie Sisters. Okay offering that 
should attract a fair share of the 
spins. 

p. “HONEYMOON TRIP TO 
v"*” MARS” (2:21) [4 Star Sales BMI 
— E. Miller, W. S. Stevenson] Bryant’s 
mellow tones are heard in solo style 
on this half as he invitingly carves 
out a cute, up tempo romantic novelty. 


JEAN SHEPARD 
(Capitol 4068) 

B “JUST ANOTHER GIRL” (2:21) 
D ' [Central BMI — H. Howard] Jean 
Shepard, who has a way with the 
romantic weepers, demonstrates her 
top calibre vocal stylings on this 
middle beat heai-tbreaker. Potent 
slicing that could push the thrush 
back up in the ‘winner’s circle’. 

B . “I WANT TO GO WHERE NO 
D+ONE KNOWS ME” (2:35) 
[Oceanic BMI — J. Jerico, K. Grant] 
More of the same chart-contending 
vocalisthenics are dished up by Jean 
on a poignant, slightly up beat lover’s 
lament. Two emotion-packed entries 
delivered with the utmost sincerity. 

WHITEY PULLEN 
(Sage 274) 

B , ‘ : W A L K MY WAY BACK 
0+HOME” (2:10) [Sage & Sand 
SESAC — W. Pullen] Sage & Sand 
could have a big, two-market hit on 
its hands by way of our 49th state. 
Whitey Pullen, from up KENI-An- 
chorage, Alaska way, bows on the 
label with a colorful romantic jumper 
tailor-made for the hoofers. Solid juke 
box entry. 

B “DON’T MAKE ME CRY” (2:10) 
[Sage & Sand SESAC— W. Pul- 
len] Here Whitey smoothly displays 
his ballad style on an easy-on-the- 
ears, moderate paced romantic weeper. 
Pleasant coupler. 


COUSIN’ JODY 
(Starday 405) 

B, “BEYOND THE NEXT HILL- 
ER- TOP” (2:35) [Starday BMI— J. 
Rhodes, I. Franks] Look for “Opry” 
star, Cousin’ Jody, to do big things 
on the charts with his Starday debut. 
The artist’s polished vocal wares are 
showcased in most choral and instru- 
mental attractive fashion on this lilt- 
ing, sentimental tear-jerker. 

B “BLUES IN RESERVE” (2:12) 
[Starday BMI — Summey] An- 
other stand out waffle is this romantic 
blues shuffler that Jody and the crew 
put across with telling effect. Keep 
your eye on both ends. 


ERNIE MATHIS 
(Fable 650) 

p “I DIDN’T KNOW” (2:18) [Hap- 
V'' py BMI — S. Stanton] Sandy Stan- 
ton’s ork softly backs Ernie Mathis’ 
warm, sincere warbling on this mod- 
erate paced romantic weeper that has 
a “Cold, Cold Heart” flavoring. 

p , “BLUE TEARDROPS” (2:30) 
V ■ [Happy BMI — E. Mathis] Ernie 
injects loads of feeling into another 
tearful, middle beat love affair. Both 
lids should encounter favorable dee- 
jay reception. 


JAN HOWARD 
(Sundown 1 12) 

B “PICK ME UP ON YOUR WAY 
DOWN” (2:20) [Pamper BMI— 
H. Howard] Jocks interested in spin- 
ning a good, female version of .the 
Charlie Walker click can do same 
with this Jan Howard outing for 
Sundown. The crying towel, up tempo 
tune is handled with a heartfelt emo- 
tion by the canary. 

B “I WISH I COULD FALL IN 
LOVE AGAIN” (2:18) [Durf 
BMI — H. Howard, W. Stewart] This 
slow waltz item, also from the ro- 
mantic weeper category is treated 
to another splendid reading by the 
dulcet-toned songstress. Jan is a 
talent to watch closely: Her star 

burns brightly on the wax horizon. 



Well Done Again 


SHREVEPORT, LA. — Backstage at 
a recent Louisiana Hayride Show held 
at the Municipal Auditorium of 
Shreveport, the Louvin Brothers and 
Johnny Horton (center) congratulate 
each other on the success of their new 
records. The Louvin’s Capitol deck of 
“My Baby’s Gone” and Horton’s Co- 
lumbia pressing of “All Grown Up” 
are both strong chart efforts. 


Del-Fi Prexy & Artist 
Promote Deck 


NEW YORK — Bob Keene, prexy of 
Del-Fi Records, and Del-Fi pactee 
Ritchie Valens (hitting with “Come 
On Let’s Go”), fresh from a Chicago

last week visiting Dick Clark and Alan 
Freed in New York and deejays Buddy 
Deane in Baltimore, and Milt Grant 
in Washington. 

In Chicago, the two called on Paul 
Glass and Earl Glicken of Allstate

rious Loop jocks.

MRS. MARY H. GILLETTE 


Mrs. Mary H. Gillette, one of Chi- 
cago’s most prominent and outstand- 
ing music operators recalls that in 
1936 she and her late husband, Leslie 
Gillette, a stock broker, received a 
coin operated phonogTaph as an anni- 
versary gift from a Detroit operator 
friend. 

“Well”, Mary reminisces, “we just 
stared at it and then, with what 
seemed a mutual meeting of our 
minds, we both spoke out simulta- 
neously. We decided to put the phono- 
graph in a location. 

“In less than a month”, Mary Gil- 
lette continues, “we were putting out 
more of the same phonographs and 
were in business as Ohio Valley Music 
Company”. 

Both Mr. and Mrs. Gillette were 
thrilled with the music business. They 
continued to progress. They built 
their route larger and still larger. 

In 1940 thev changed their firm 
name to Gillette Distributing Com- 
pany. They had become distributors 
for Packard Wall Boxes and later for 
the Packard phonograph. 

Leslie Gillette passed away in 1944. 
Mary carried on alone. And tho, for 
a while, she lost some locations, in 
due time she regained them and added 
many more. Her automatic music 
business, today, is one of the biggest 
and best in Chicago. 

Mrs. Mary H. Gillette is fired with 
so much natural energy that, in addi- 
tion to building up her automatic 
music business, raising a most gor- 
geous, scholarship winning daughter, 
Leslie, who is now 16 years old and 
bent on following her mother’s foot- 
steps she also, at one time, owned 
three retail music stores along with 
a one-stop music business. 

She has since sold all of her music 
stores but one Gillette Music, also 
called, “Mary Gillette’s”, by her cus- 
tomers, in fashionable, suburban Old 
Orchard. * . 

She believes that, with the entrance 
of stereo disks and tapes and, further, 
because she can better concentrate on 
one store, her Old Orchard music cen- 
ter will, in due time, become one of 
the most outstanding establishments 
of its kind in all Chicagoland. 

Mary H. Gillette retains one deep, 
dark secret she just won’t tell a soul. 
What the “H” stands for in her name. 

Instead, she quickly switches back 
to talking about music, of which she 
most wholeheartedly says: 

“I love music and the music busi- 
ness from beginning to end.” 


Page 57 (Editorial) 

Why 

should the members of the 
coin machine industry have to 
continuously be the victims 
of a bad and unfair press? 


This is the question asked of us, and 
asked by members of the industry. Why 
should its members be categorized as 
second class citizens when its people can 
stand up morally, and any other way, 
with those in any other industry — be it 
hanking, politics, hard goods, soft 
goods, or the corner grocery store? Of 
course, there are a few bad apples. But 
is any industry devoid of these indi- 
viduals ? 

The difference is in the attitude of 
the press and public. When an unsavory 
character is discovered in, say politics, 
the press reports a factual story on the 
individual. But let it happen to anyone 
in the coin machine business — then the 
entire industry is condemned in super 
sensational, highly colored news stories. 

When one of these highly harmful 
and in most instances fabulously fictiti- 
ous stories appear in print, some of the 
industry’s leaders feel they should he 
refuted. After several experiences along 
this line, coinmen are now of the opin- 
ion it’s far better to “take the raj)" and 
say nothing, as their efforts resulted 
only in continuing the attack. 

This, of course, is not the answer. 


In small towns and cities, the mem- 
bers of the coin machine industry, thru 
friendships and associations with other 
citizens in local political, fraternal and 
business organizations, are not the mis- 
understood people as are those located 
in the larger cities. The coinmen in 
these smaller communities are recog- 

nized for what they are good solid, 

hard working, honorable citizens. 

The big city coinmen, therefor, must 
see to it that their status is such that 
when a newspaper considers running a 
story on some individual, it is one that 
will not condemn all the industry’s in- 
dividuals. 


Time Magazine , in a full page adver- 
tisement in the ISew York Times , head- 
lined its copy with “To judge, we first 
must KNOW ’. 


If those in the coin machine business 
would undertake a public relations pro- 
gram (we like Willie Blatt's PAL pro- 
gram in Miami, Fla.) which would ac- 
quaint both the press and the public 
with the type of honorable people in 
our business — they would KNOW — 
and their judgment would then bring 
glory and honor to the coin machine 
dustrv.

BILL GERSH 


Other Officers Named Are 
Norman Orleck, V.P. and Secy.; 
George Albert, Treas. Same to 
Serve on Board of Directors 


RETIRES 



JOE ORLECK 


Consents to Act as Consultant 


NEW YORK — After thirty years of active service to the industry, the last 
sixteen with The Cash Box, which he founded June 1942, Bill Gersh stunned a 
gathering of close friends at the Savoy Hilton Hotel, this city, this past week, 
with the announcement of his retirement. 

He has consented to act as consultant to this publication. It is well known 
thruout the industry, these past years especially, that more and more of his 
time has been taken up in consultations with firms in all divisions of the 
trade internationally. 

He is one of the best known men in the industry. He has traveled the 
world, meeting various leaders and has become acquainted with almost all 
firms in the trade. His acquaintenceship is reputed to be among the largest 
of any single person in all the history of the industry. 

Though he will be available to act as consultant to this publication he 
may also be engaged in this same capacity for others requiring his wide 
knowledge and long experience in the industry. 

Gersh hasn’t announced any immediate plans other than he will spend 
the winter in Florida’s sunny clime. . 


NEW YORK — At a meeting of the Board of Directors of The Cash Box 
Publishing Company, Inc., this city, Joseph P. Orleck was voted to the office 
of President. 

Other officers named were Norman Orleck, vice president and secretary; 
and George Albert, treasurer. 

These same officers were elected to serve on the Board of Directors. 

Joe Orleck, the newly elected president, is well known thruout the coin 
machine industry, having spent over thirty years in contact with its members 
from all over the world. In addition to his thousands of friends in the industry, 
he is particularly well versed with its functions and problems. 

“I have been serving the coin machine industry for better than a quarter 
of a century”, stated Joe, “the past 16 with The Cash Box, in the capacity of 
an officer and director, and my friends can be assured of the same close co- 
operation and service as has always been devoted to their better welfare.” 


Tom C allaghan P asses 

Was With The United States Secret Service 
For 35 Years And Headed Chicago Secret 
Service Office 19 Years 


CHICAGO — Thomas J. (Tom) 
Callaghan, who resigned as Assist- 
ant to the President of Bally Man- 
ufacturing Corpoi'ation, because 
of ill health earlier this year, 
passed away on Wednesday Octo- 
ber 15. Burial was in Chicago on 
Saturday, Oct. 18. He was 73 years 
old. 

Callaghan became associated 
with the Bally organization in 
1946 after a long and distinguished 
career with the Secret Service of 
the United States Government. He, 
known as the personal guardian to 
the Px-esident of the United States, 
had headed the Secret Service of- 
fice in Chicago for nineteen years 
and had helped guard Presidents, 
from Theodore Roosevelt to Harry 
S. Truman. 

One of the most colorful figures 
in Government work in Chicago, 
Captain Callaghan was chief of the 
Secret Service office in Chicago 


from 1926 until his retirement in 
1945 after thirty-five years as a 
Government agent. He was well 
known for his smiling good hu- 
mor, his dapper clothes and the 
white carnation which he carried 
in his lapel every day. 

He also guarded, on their trips 
to this country, Sir Winston 
Churchill and Mme. Chiang Kai- 
shek, wife of the Chinese Na- 
tionalist leader. 

Callaghan made quite a reputa- 
tion for himself in his battle 
against counterfeiters in the Mid- 
west. One of his most famous ex- 
ploits was the trapping of the no- 
torious Frankie Parker, a head 
line figure back in 1939. Surviv- 
ing, besides his widow, are a 
brother, Sam, a Secret Service 
agent in New York, and two sis- 
ters, Mrs. Florence Martin of New 
York, and Mrs. Elsie Maher of St. 
Augustine, Fla. 


Music Ops Of Conn Vote 
To Accept Vending 
Operators 

HARTFORD, CONN.— Ben Gordon, 
business agent of the Music Oper- 
ators of Connecticut, Inc., this city, 
announced that at a dinner held on 
Wednesday, October 8, at the Hotel 
Bond, the organization voted to per- 
mit vending machine operators, spe- 
cifically cigarette machine operators, 
to become members of the MOC. 

“It is believed by the organization,” 
stated Gordon, “that admitting the 
cigarette operators at this time would 
be of advantage to the entire coin 
machine industry. The reason for 
such thinking is that many operators 
have diversified their interests to 
include vending machines in their 
operations in order to supplement 
incomes. Not having them in the asso- 
ciation has led to many conflicts 
among the operators,” he concluded. 

Honorary President Abe Fish, in 
an address to the operators stressed 
the importance of a strong, united 
association. 

Vice President Paul Rechtshafer, in 
his talk, spoke of the need for a 
public relations program to counter- 
act the bad publicity so often ac- 
corded the coin machine industry. 

Attending the meeting as guests 
of the association were representa- 
tives of the following distributing 
companies: Redd Distributing Co., 

Boston, Mass.; Runyon Sales of Con- 
necticut and New York; and Atlantic 
New York Corp. of Connecticut and 
New York. 

Also visiting were Ralph Ridgeway, 
president, and Russell Mawdsley, 
secretary of the Western Mass. Op- 
erators Guild. 


Fire Destroys 
Entire Central 
Distribs Building 

ST. LOUIS. — In a fire that raged 
for many hours, Central Distributors, i 
this city, had its offices, showroom and 
shops completely destroyed on Sun- 
day October 12th. 

Central is the distributor for AMI 
phonographs and United and Williams 
games. Its offices were located at 
2315 Olive Street in the West end of 
the downtown area. 

Immediately, temporary quarters 
were set up in a vacant building 
across the street from the burned out 
buildings and all of Central’s person- 
nel were on hand early Monday morn- 
ing ready for “business as usual.” 
When interviewed, Tony Koupal, 
general manager of Central stated, 
“No definite plans for either rebuild- 
ing, or a new site have been set.” 
He went on to say, “To our friends, 
our manufacturers, our suppliers and 
most of all to our loyal customers, 
we are happy to say that we are open 
for business. The telephones have 
been connected. We are just across 
the street from our former offices 
and we will be happy to see you and 
hear from you.” , 


Donates Juke Box To 
New Jersey Center 

NEWARK, N.J. — Ed Burg, Runyon 
Sales Co., this city, was the recipient 
recently of an extremely warm letter 
in which The Jewish Center of West 
Orange, West Orange, N.J., thanked 
Runyon for its donation of a 45 RPM 
jukebox. 

Burg has made many phonograph 
donations to worthy organizations 
and has in this manner helped do a 
strong public relations job for the 
coin machine industry in his area.

Williams Introduces New 
Pop-Up Target Gun 




SAM LEWIS 


CHICAGO — When talking about 
Williams’ new “Vanguard” gun game, 
Sam Lewis, sales manager for Wil- 
liams Manufacturing Company, this 
city, said, “Our long location tests on 
‘Vanguard’ proved that this gun will 
earn more money on location than any 
other gun you’ve ever seen because it 
makes the players think. Should he 
shoot one ball? Should he shoot the 
entire line? Or should he shoot all 
the balls” 

Lewis went on to say, “Unlike pre- 
vious gun games ‘Vanguard’ mixes 
skill with chance. The ingenious 
scoring possibilities are a constant 
challenge to players. It’s fun for the 
spectators too and you can be sure 


that the player gets plenty of advice 
from the sidelines.” 

“Vanguard” has pop-up ball tar- 
gets. It can be adjusted to 6 balls 20 
shots; 6 balls 15 shots; 7 balls 15 
shots; and 7 balls 10 shots. Replay 
and match features are optional. 

The machine is in full production 
and shipments are leaving the plant 
daily, bound for all of the firm’s dis- 
tributors. 

Irving Kaye Co. Ships 
“Deuces Wild” 


BROOKLYN, N. Y.— Irving Kaye, 
Irving Kaye Company, this city, last 
week announced it is now shipping its 
newest game, “Deuces Wild,” to its 
distributors throughout the United 
States. 

Kaye described “Deuces Wild” as 
a twin, two-player roll down poker 
table that occupies but 28 inches by 
32 inches of floor space. 

“It plays,” said Kaye, “five balls for 
five cents. It is actually two poker 
games in one cabinet and can accom- 
modate two players at the same time, 
if desired. 

“It will induce more competitive 
play by eliminating scoring disagree- 
ments since both scores are retained. 

“ ‘Deuces Wild’ is an extremely ver- 
satile game. Its ‘Double Value Pock- 
ets’ can be scored a number of dif- 
ferent ways, including high score or 


Automatic Vend-AII 
Sales Holds 2-Day 
Boston Show 


BOSTON — More than 200 ops from 
all over New England attended the 
two-day show put on by Ben Palas- 
trant, Automatic Vend-All Sales Co., 
Boston, at the Silver Room of the 
Hotel Kenmore in Boston, October 7

trant reported that the large number 
of ops attending included many from 
the music and games fields who are di- 
versifying their routes. 

“More and more ops are diversify- 
ing their set-ups these days,” Ben 
stated. “There is a definite trend to 
diversification these days and ops are 
jumping on the vending machine 
bandwagon for the long haul.” 

Among machines shown were the 
Cold-Spa, Hot-Spa and brand new 
Shake-Spa. Among ops attending the 
show were: Art Strahan, Greenfield, 
Sid Diamond, New Haven, Conn.;

“Deuces Wild” has an illuminated 
score glass and the playfields and cabi- 
net are expressly designed and fin- 
ished in vivid colors to capture the 
eye at first glance. 

Kaye stated that “Deuces Wild” is 
economically priced and will permit 
blanket coverage of locations without 
major investments.

cording to David Rockola: model 

“1468”-120 selection Tempo mon- 
aural phonograph; model “1468ST”-

phonograph ; and model “1460”-200 
selection monaural Playmaster. Ac- 
cessory equipment included in the 
line are: dual credit, receivers, speak- 
ers and wall boxes. 

“We will continue to ship our cur- 
cent Rock-Ola models ‘1464’-100 sel- 
ection monaural wall phonograph, and 
‘1462’-50 selection monaural phono- 
graph,” Rockola stated. 

Rockola announced planning of 
Rock-Ola days distributor showings 
for the week of November 2 ; and “ar- 
rangements have been made,” he 
stated “whereby, in addition to sam- 
ples, distributors will have ample in- 
ventory for immediate delivery to 
customers. 

“We commenced production of the 
new ‘Tempo’ line September 22,” he 
continued, “and by November 22 we 
will have shipped, or have in stock, 
more than 1500 units. I can confi- 
dent’ y assure you that our all new 
‘Tempo’ line of phonographs is the 
most outstanding development in the 
industry ! 

“During the latter part of October 
our field engineers will hold schools 
throughout the country,” he said, 
“and the sales department will notify 
all our distributors of convenient 
dates for classes in each respective 
territory.” 

Rockola was lavish in his praise of 
artists, designers, engineers and 
technicians who, he stated, played a 
very vital role in creating Rock-Ola’s 
1959 “Tempo” line. 

During the course of his presenta- 
tion, Rockola compared in contrast 
the current 1959 200 selection model 
with the Rock-Ola 1935 standard 12 
selection model. 

Rockola stressed to distributors the 
fact that the new stereo amplifier 
contained in “Tempo” models 
“1468ST” and “1475ST” is actually 
2 amplifiers designed and developed 
into a single chassis. 

Other features available in the 
1959 “Tempo” line are: Complete 

new noisless mechanism, finger touch 
popularity meter, one-way revolving 
record magazine, simplified selector, 
eye-level programming, one button 
selection system, and 50<f coin chute 
(standard equipment). There is easy 
accessibility to coin switch, accumu- 
lator, program dual credit, and all 
other parts of the mechanism.

Location Loans Sound 
Biz Practice Says 
Philadelphia Banker 



RAY J. ERFLE 


PHILADELPHIA, PA.— R. J. Erfle, 
vice-president of the Broad Street 
Trust Company, this city, who has 
been dealing with operators in this 
area, gives his views on loans to lo- 
cations. 

“From the banker’s standpoint”, re- 
ports Erfle, “we are ‘for’ loans to 
locations. The arguments set forth 
for the locations, from the operator’s 
standpoint, are thoroughly sound. 

“The biggest problem against loans 
to locations”, he continues, “is the 
availability of funds. The arrange- 
ment we have with our operators, 
and that I am sure would be satisfac- 
tory to the majority of lending insti- 
tutions, is that we get a credit appli- 
cation from the location owner, but 
have the note endorsed by the oper- 
ator. 

“For the millions of dollars that 
have been loaned out there have been 
no disappointments whatsoever to the 
banking fraternity. The losses to the 
operators have only run a few thous- 
and dollars at the very top. 

“By having the bank send coupon 
books to the locations the location 
owners are then fully aware of the 
fact that they owe money to the bank. 
There is then no tendency on their 
part to ‘stall’ making payments. 

“In addition, the bank actually 
makes the money advance, so that it 
is no burden to the operator’s cash 
position. 

“It appears to the writer that if 
the operator has any credit with his 
bank he should have no trouble get- 
ting assistance. With the operator 
having his hand in the till each week, 
there is no reason why the loan 
shouldn’t be repaid. As a practical 
matter, many of our operators bring 
the payments directly to the bank act- 
ing in this case, of course, on behalf 
of the location owner. 

“We can appreciate that it is an 
extremely serious position where op- 
erators are not getting bank assist- 
ance.” 



ROBERT H. (BOB) BEAR 


NORTH TONAWANDA, N. Y.— 
Announcing new representation in the 
Chicago, Illinois territory, the Wur- 
litzer Company, this city, has named 
Carl R. Greene of the Tower Distribut- 
ing Company as sales and service out- 
let for their coin operated phonograph 
line. 

In a statement today, Robert H. 
Bear, Wurlitzer phonograph sales 
manager, announced the appointment 
of the new distributor. Said Bear, 
“Carl Greene, owner of Tower Dis- 
tributing Company, heads an organi- 
zation which is fully staffed and 
equipped to represent our company in 
the Chicago area: Carl himself is a 

veteran of 13 years in the coin ma- 
chine industry and is well versed in 
all the important factors pertaining 
to our business. 

“Carl enjoys a reputation for years 
of successful operation in music and 
his many friends among his affiliates 
in the coin operated music business. 
He will be assisted in this new under- 
taking by his brother, Robert Greene, 
sales manager of the Tower Distrib- 
uting Company. The service and 
parts department will be under the 
supervision of Nathan Peak service 
manager. We are confident that Carl 
Greene and his associates will develop 
the continually expanding market for 
Wurlitzer music. We are proud to 
welcome them as members of our fine 
distributor group”. 

Carl Greene, as owner of Tower 
Distributing Company, has announced j 
the acquisition of property at 1725-27 
West Division Street, Chicago. These 
premises will house his new head- ' 
quarters with complete sales offices, 
display room, fully stocked parts de- 
partment, and equipment to facilitate 
service and repair on all models of 


Wurlitzer Phonographs and those of 
all other manufacturers. 

At present, a full line of Wurlitzer 
equipment, including the Console 
models and the model “2250” are on 
display in Tower’s sales room. Wall- 
boxes, speakers and other remote con- 
trol equipment is also immediately 
available. The Tower Distiibuting 
number for Wurlitzer service is 
GRaceland 7-1054. Nathan Peak will 
be happy to fill operators’ parts orders 
or to advise them concerning service 
information and instructions. Bob 
Bear has stated that Reid Whipple, 
Wurlitzer field service engineer, will 
for the present, be stationed at Tower 
Distributing and will act as liaison 
between the new distributor and the 
Wurlitzer factory. 

Tower Distributing Company’s new 
territory includes Metropolitan Chi- 
cago and 39 Illinois counties, 22 In- 
diana counties and one Michigan 
county. Carl Greene has extended an 
invitation to all local operators to 
drop in and discuss the fine deals he 
can give on Wurlitzer phonographs 
and to enjoy Wurlitzer’s Stereophonic 
sound, first in the coin operated music 
field.

Applications For Amuse Trade 

Exhib. Oversubscribed 
GREAT BRITAIN GLIMPSES — 


Back in Britain this week, I find the pace much slower than in Chicago, 
but noticeably speeding in the industry. . . . Application forms for space at 
the Amusement Trades Exhibition which is to be held in London next February 
reached potential exhibitors this week, and early reports are that the show 
seems likely to be over-subscribed. Chief attraction is certain to be the first- 
ever showing in Britain since the war of a wide range of American amusement 
equipment, thanks to contracts signed during my recent trip to Chicago.. 
British operators are hungry for new attractions, so, if the prices are right, 
business should be tremendous. Venue is the New Royal Horticultural Hall 
on February 3, 4, 5. ... A new all-British coin-operated coin game is reported 
to be in production by Streets, but details are being withheld for the time 
being. I am assured, however, that it will be ready for showing at the February 
exhibition, and that the price will be an excellent one. . . . Meanwhile, on 
November 14 and 15, what is described as “the first Auto Vending Machine 
Exhibition in Nottingham” will be held there at the County Hotel under the 
auspices of Mark Dunneman, who visited American plants last year. Many 
types of coin equipment will be shown. . . . The Amusement Caterers’ Associ- 
ation (London Section) is to hold its first Dinner-Dance and Cabaret at the 
Trocadero Restaurant, Piccadilly, London, on Monday, October 27. Among the 
record artists to attend will be Petula Clark of Nixa Records, at present 
enjoying enormous success in France as well as in Britain. With her will be 
Nixa a. & r. man, Alan Freeman, who once ran his own record company in 
London. ... A. C. A. chairman, Robert Brenner, acting on “doctor’s orders” 
has gone off to Spain for a few weeks sunshine and rest. Helping him to 
recuperate from a recent illness is his charming wife. . . . Underlining the 
competition that has come into the juke-box business, Messrs. Rufller and 
Walker have followed the recent Bal-Ami reduction in H.P. terms with the 
offer of low terms (on their Rock-Ola equipment). The rate announced is six 
per cent. Their Wales, Nottingham and Leeds subsidiaries are offering the 
same terms. A big response is claimed. . . . That you have to have your wits 
about you when operating some of the new hot and cold drink vending ma- 
chines that are being widely installed in British locations is underlined by 
this story from a conductor at Bristol’s new bus station, where a bank of 
machines has been installed. From a choice of coffee, soup and soft drinks 
he chose coffee. He duly pressed the buttons marked “Coffee”, “Milk” and 
“Sugar”, and, bingo, out popped a cup of steaming soup, laced with milk and 
sugar. “A little boy drank it without a qualm”, he says.

Chicago Phonograph Bowler 
Rolls Odd Game 


CHICAGO — The Chicago Bowlers 
Magazine featured the unusual score 
of Henry Krueger, one of the team 
members of the Gallets. The article 
read as follows: 

Sound off— 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0. 
. . . That’s the down-the-ladder se- 
quences of last numbers appearing on 
the score-card turned in by Henry 
Krueger in the Automatic Phonograph 
League September 18th. 

He started off with a 19 in the first 
frame and on each succeeding frame 
added 9 or 19 to “fix” his totals at 28, 
37, 56, 84, 93, 112, 121 and 130. 
Krueger made one strike and three 
spares in posting the oddity. He fin- 
ished with a 130, thirty pins short of 
his league average. 

Despite the outstanding perform- 
ance of C. Martin, Phono Service 
dropped two games to the Galganos. 
Martin rolled a 579 series and the 
high game for the season so far with 


a neat 244. T. Galgano was high with 
a 534 for his team. 

Atlas Music scored a clean sweep 
against ABC. H. Sophie had a 524 
for Atlas and E. Swider 516 for ABC. 

Decca took all three from B & B. 
T. Ignoffo was tops for Decca with a 
536 and R. Bauer rolled 511 for the 
losers. 

Continuing the clean sweep attack 
Star Music topped Chi Music with a 
gal team member shooting a high 514 
series and a nice 207 topping the gals 
so far this year. 

B. Beriso shot a 488 for Chi Music. 
Gallets also took three from Chi Con- 
densers. R. Gallet with a 575 for the 
winners and C. Zuber with a 478 for 
Chi Condensers. 

F. Kaiser of the Mercury team shot 
a 562 to help his team take two from 
the Coven team whose top man was 
L. Scholtes with 496. 


Rosen Aids Charity Drive 



PHILADELPHIA, PA. — Dave Rosen, David Rosen, Inc., this city, one of 
the nation’s leading distributors, and one of the most active individuals in the 
industry for charitable causes, was on the sidewalks of his home town on 
Friday, October 3, doing his bit for the Variety Club’s Camp for Handicapped 
Children. 

Wearing a black top hat and a bright gold and red apron, Dave pitched 
a special Old Newsboy’s Day edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer (local daily) 
to corral extra contributions for the club’s charity funds. 

Rosen was in good company that day, for many of Philadelphia’s leading 
figures in business, banking and government had also volunteered to sell the 
special edition. Dave has been a member of the Variety Club since ’way back 
when he was affiliated with Warner Brothers in the theatrical field.

Gottlieb Announces New 
Four Player Game 



ALVIN GOTTLIEB 

CHICAGO — In announcing that the 
firm was now delivering a new four- 
player game “Contest,” Alvin Gottlieb 
of D. Gottlieb & Company, this city, 
said. “We build only one four-player 
game per year, and advance orders 
for ‘Contest’ indicate that we will be 
in production on this game for a long 
time.”

He stated further, “Often, our dis- 
tributors urge us to build four-player 
games more frequently. However, we 
feel that our policy to control a limited 
production of this type of game pays 
off. In this way the operator enjoys 
long-term profits plus giant resale 
values on our four-player games be- 
cause he knows that there is only one 
run per year on a Gottlieb four-player 
game.” 

Alvin went on to say, “ ‘Contest’ is 
another four-player game designed to 
repeat the outstanding success of 
games such as ‘Super Jumbo,’ ‘Jubi- 
lee,’ ‘Majestic’ and ‘Falstaff.’ It in- 
corporates many proven Gottlieb fea- 
tures such as roto-targets, roll-unders, 
pop bumpers, crossboard and cyclonic 
kickers. This game can be set for 3 or 
5 ball play and comes with a two-way 
double-match featux-e.” 

It is reported that recent visits to 
the Gottlieb plant by a number of the 
firm’s distributors who saw and played 
the game resulted in an unprecedent- 
ed number of large advance orders.

N. Y. S. Ops Guild 
Holds Meeting 


NEWBURGH, N.Y.— Jack Wilson, 
president. New York State Operators 
Guild, chairmanned a regular meet- 
ing of its members held on Wednes- 
day, October 15, at the Palentine 
Hotel, this city. 

Following a full course dinner, the 
members adjourned to the meeting 
hall and conducted its business. 

Among those present were: Ger- 
trude Brown, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Mc- 
Carthy, Joe Reich, Harry Greenberg, 
Joe Lippi, Tom Greco, Ed Rockwell, 
John Nuccitelli, James (Pie) Haley, 
Tom Gobel, Lester Smith, Mike Mul- 
queen, Richard Wenzel, Howard 
Purdy, and Lou Werner, attorney. 

Two representatives of New York 
City distributing firms were guests at 
the meeting — Gordon Howard, Atlan- 
tic New York Corporation (Seeburg) 
and Irving Holzman, Black Sales 
Company (United). 


Diversification of lines is seen as a continuing trend in the coin machine 
biz in New England. The trend was marked by the large number of music 
and game ops who booked orders at Ben Palastrant’s show of the newest in 
vending equipment at the Silver Room of Hotel Kenmore. (See separate story). 

Plans are pretty well set for the annual dinner of the Music Operators of 
Massachusetts to be held at the Sheraton Plaza Hotel on Nov. 10. A big star 
show, with acts from all the major clubs in the area and many record artists 
coming in especially for the affair, is being arranged. Ralph Lackey heads 
a committee in charge of arrangements. . . . Tony Grazzio is remodeling and 
installing a new heating system and new showrooms in the Atlas Distributing 
plant (AMI), which he has taken over on Commonwealth Ave. An opening 
of the newly refurbished plant is set for Monday, Oct. 20. . . . At Associated 
Amusements (Rock-Ola), Dick Mandell gen. mgr., and Mrs. Mandell with 
their daughter visited New York where Mrs. Mandell and the youngster are 
remaining for a week. Dick is off on a selling trip to N. H. and Me. territories. 
Used equipment is moving fast at Associated. ... At Redd Distributing 
(Wurlitzer), Bob Jones, sales mgr., reports ops are still flocking in for a look 
at the new Wurlitzer stereophonic units and to hear the new all engulfing 
sound. Chicago Coin’s new “Twin Bowler”, which features two groups of 
four playing at the same time, is in and looks to be one of the biggest hits in 
some time with ops very enthusiastic. Bally’s “Beach Time” is big and 
Chicago Coin’s “Player’s Choice” is hot. Bally’s “Shuffle Alley” is still a big- 
winner here and plant is having difficulty keeping up with orders on this 
popular number. ... At Trimount Automatic Sales Corp. (Seeburg), music 
is climbing and games are going at a fast clip. Import biz is way up and 
there is a continuing demand for good used equipment. Many ops are coming 
in to Trimount show rooms to look over the new equipment which has been 
incoming. Outlook for biz is good, according to Irwin Margold, gen. mgr., and 
Dave Bond, president of Trimount. . . . Ops are intensely interested in new 
games and new mechanical innovations. Among ops in visiting distribs this 
week were: Art Rode, Bristol, Conn.; Harlan Mitchell, Troy, N. H.; Ray Shea, 
Worcester; Dave Baker, Arlington; Saul Taube, Manchester, N. H.; Tom 
Libby, Haverhill; Connie Pocius, South Boston; Henry Gladstone, Boston; 
Charles Tiernan, Cambridge; George Marks, Newton; Albert Jaffarian, Haver- 
hill; Timothy Sullivan, Bangor, Me.; Tony Delucca, Cranston, R. I.; Joe Glazer, 
Bangor, Me.; Walter Stadnick, Central Falls, R. I.; Romeo Rivard, Quincy; 
Dave Schultz, Brockton; Steve Pielock, Worcester; Pete Suma, Bristol, R. I.; 
Art Strahan, Greenfield; A1 Dolins, Hyannis; A1 Meyers, Boston; Sid Warlbast, 
Newton; Sol Robinson, Newton; Ray Farrow, Taunton; Phil Swartz, Brook- 
line; Denny Dolvin, Springfield; Joe Cucchiara, Fitchburg; Jake Cohen, Oxford; 
Peachy Cassanta, Milford; Harold Harwich, Brighton; Ray Boland, Athol. 

Export biz is reported really zooming with reports from foreign countries 
indicating that pins are very very big. Reports from Italy indicate that in 
less than two years since the first lot of old pins arrived, “electric billiards”, 
as they are called there now number nearly 20,000 and are being installed in 
all the top bars and sophisticated niteries. . . . With influx of record artists 
around the Boston niteries continuing, Nat “King” Cole was tendered a big 
press party by Capitol Records at the Sheraton Plaza Hotel Tuesday, Oct. 14. 
Herb Dale of Capitol was in charge of the affair. Robbi Baker, singing come- 
dienne, held over at the Frolic, Revere. Betty Kean and Lew Parker headlining 
at the Bradford Roof. Music goes back into the Gilded Cage with return to 
“Gay Nineties” type shows. 


Markets Opening Nicely In Europe 
Says Active’s Larry Ash 


PHILADELPHIA FILBERTS 


A1 Rodstein, Banner Specialty, can’t wait until the new United game 
comes in. Says it will be something entirely new and out of the ordinary. 
Moe Bayer back after a successful trip, and — off goes Fred Walter. . . . 
Hank Grant, International Amusement, tells us that Albert Polak and Saul 
Groentman will be back in the states next week after their long stay in 
Europe. . . . Abe Witsen, International Scott Crosse, in Chicago viewing the 
new Rock-Ola, which will be released the early part of November. In this 
week is a sample shipment of the new Bally “Star Shuffle”. . . . We got our 
first opportunity to speak to Larry Ash, Active Amusements, since his return 
from Europe. His impression is that marketing conditions are opening nice- 
ly. However, he is worried about the situation in Italy. Marty Brownstein 
away for a few days of well earned rest. . . . Harry Ascola, Columbia Rec- 
ords, reports a fine show held in Scranton and Wilkes Barre for the United 
Fund Drive. Harry, incidentally, celebrated his 29th birthday, October 13. 
. . . Harry Rosen, David Rosen, enthusiastic about Dale Hawkins’ “A House, 
A car and A Wedding Ring” on Checker. He is also high on the new ABC- 
Paramount “The Time” by Joan Shaw, and “Walking Along” by The Dia- 
monds. . . . Bill Jackson very much pleased with the reception given his new 
record, “When You Come Back To Me”. . . . Ted Kellem, Marnel, also gives 
exciting details about the United Fund Drive at Scranton and Wilkes Barre. 
In still glowing terms Kellem describes The Four Coins’ “The World. Outside” 
on Epic and Lester Lanin’s “Have Band Will Travel”, Epic. Sylvia Saynt, 
Philly’s own, (United Artists) heads for Boston on a promotion trip. . . . Mario 
D’Aullario, King Records, just back from his retreat at Malvern. He is just 
bubbling about it. Mario pitches two new albums to us. Earl Bostic’s “Fan- 
tastic Fifties” and Lula Reed’s “Blue and Moody”. . . . Paul Knowles, Ray- 
mond Rosen, tells us of the fine party given for Tony Martin at The Latin 
Casino last Friday night.

NORTH TONAWANDA, N. Y.— 
The Hit Parade, back on TV after a 
summer’s leave, gave heavy play to a 
battery of new Wurlitzer Console 
Models which were lined up in back of 
Dorothy Collins as she sang one of 
her numbers last Friday, October 11. 

Altogether, six phonographs ap- 
peared on the show, one being includ- 
ed in the finale as the cast gathered 
before the camera for their fare- 
wells. In one instance a close-up shot 
filled the entire screen with the Wur- 
litzer record changer mechanism as it 
was actually in operation. A. D. 
Palmer, Jr., advertising and sales 
promotion manager of Wurlitzer, sit- 
ting by, ready with his Polaroid cam- 
era, was successfully able to shoot 
this scene (above left). He also took 
the picture of Dorothy Collins in front 
of the W’urlitzer phonographs shown 
above right.

a big- fall and winter season. 

* * * * * J 

Meyer Parkoff and Murray Kaye, Atlantic New York Corp., busy with 
the details of getting the Seeburg stereo phonograph showing ready. Invita- 
tions have already gone out to all the local operators for October 22 and 23,

and are certain this is a big milestone in the advance of the juke box. Refresh- 
ments will be served. Parkoff has also arranged for showings at the Hartford,

ment that Munves will launch in a couple of weeks. It will be a Mike Munves 
subsidiary to be known as Munves Laboratories, and will produce sundry 1

conducting a school for the local operators. The Runyon organization sent 
fifteen men to the Grand Rapids AMI School for one week. The group, selected & 
from the New York and New Jersey operators, left on Saturday, October 18.1®

the intracacies of the AMI phonograph. According to Rood, Runyen switch-

Pan American Games 
To Chicago In 1959 


— - CHICAGO CHATTER 



In its role as hosts to the world, Chicago has been awarded the Pan-Amer- 
ican Games. This international sporting event will take 
place late in August of 1959. Over twenty countries in the 
Western Hemisphere will compete. Already, many coinmen 
have indicated that they will plan late summer vacations 
to be able to take in this spectacular show. Vice President 
Nixon in a speech on October 14th stated that Chicago 
would now have a golden opportunity to improve relation- 
ships with our neighbors throughout the entire Western 
Hemisphere. 

Joe Kline of First Coin was pleasantly surprised by 
his entire staff who had arranged a champagne breakfast 
to honor Joe on his birthday. All work was suspended at 
First Coin for the celebration, but it was the usual beehive 
of activity right after with Joe, Sam Kolber, Fred Kline 
and Nick Nelson visiting with the guests and demonstrat-

were jammed with Irv Blumenfeld and George Goldman of Baltimore, Si Lazar, 
Bob Lazar, Eddie Goldvarg and Alan Kanarek of Pittsburgh. Ed reports that 
the entire first production run of their new “Twin Bowler” 
is completly sold out and all hands are hard at w’ork trying 
to get additional releases under way just as soon as

CALIFORNIA CLIPPINGS- 


With interest still running high in the final games of the World Series 
the pace along Pico Boulevard last week was still somewhat slow, but busi] 
ness is expected to return to normalcy this week. ... At Simon Distributing 
Co., Sonny Lomberg reports that Jack Simon has just returned from a sue] 
cessful buying and selling trip visiting San Francisco, Reno and Las Vegas 
Two exceptionally large export orders are being readied for shipment in the] 
very near future says Sonny. Sonny also states that he has just returned 
from a business trip to San Diego which was also very beneficial. Jack Simon 
informed that local business has been picking up steadily and that the coming 
months should continue to improve. . . . Bill Happel, at Badger Sales Co., 
reports that Badger Sales has purchased Herman Paster’s interest in the 
company, leaving Happel as the sole owner of Badger. Marshall Ames com- 
mented ’ that his bowling team won three games last Friday night, leaving 
them one game in front in first place. Marshall also stated that the World 
Series seemed to be capturing the interest of both operators and distributors 
along “distributor-row” the past week. ... At Norty’s Music Center, Norty 
Beckman says that business continued good this week. Joe Alvarez seemed 
to feel that “Tom Dooley”, by the Kingston Trio on Capitol Records, is selling 
so fast that it will probably be one of the biggest records of the year. “The 
Day The Rains Came”, by Jane Morgan on the Kapp label, looks like a real 
chart climber, says Norty. . . . A1 Silberman, at Associated Distributors, 
reports that the new Wurlitzer stereophonic equipment is on display in the 
showroom and that the interest on the part of the operators is tremendous. 
Most of the operators, says Al, are amazed at the improvement in sound 
reproduction that stereo equipment has over hi-fi. A letter announcing the 
arrival of the equipment and the fact that it is on display has been mailed out 
to many of the operators in the Southern California territory, said Al. Al also 
related that Associated is ready to install “stereo” into any location im- 
mediately. ... At Paul A. Laymon’s, Charlie Daniels informs that they had 
good attendance in their showroom to watch the world series on the big wide- 
screen TV set. Charlie said that operators, “didn’t talk much business” during 
the series. . . . Vinny Lanzy, at American Coin Machine Co., reports that a 
new man was hired at American for outside service. Vinny also said that 
the “Easy View” program holders for the Seeburg “K 200”, “V 200” and 
“VL 200” are still going very well and are proving very popular with the 
operators and public alike. Business still continues to be very good at Amer- 
ican, says Vinny. ... At William H. Leuenhagen & Co., the Solle sisters 
stated that Capitol Record star Sonny James, along with George Russell 
from the promotion department at Capitol, were in to visit this week and 
discuss Sonny’s latest release “I Can’t Stay Away From You”. Norm Dudley, 
from Mercury Records, was also in this week and dropped off Lou Stein's 
new side on Mercury “Dm Looking Over A Four Leaf Clover”. “Jealous 
Heart”, by Tab Hunter on Warner Bros, label, could be a real big one says 
Mary Solle. Sister Kay seems to feel “Mississippi Steamboat”, by Fenton 
Robinson on Duke Records, looks like a good bet for a future hit. . . . Hank 
Tronick, at C. A. Robinson & Co., reports that Al Thoelke, United Manufac 
turing Sales Engineer, is in town and has been visiting many of the operator: 
and their locations in the territory with Hank. Hank also informs that United’s 
new “Cyclone” is proving to be very popular with the operators. ... At 
Minthorne Music Co., Wayne Davis states that Matt Nordberg, from the out- 
side sales department at Minthorne, has been out all week with the flu and 
is not expected back until next week sometime. Minthorne is awaiting the 
arrival of the sensational new Seeburg phonograph, says Wayne, and they 
are planning one of the biggest showings ever held. The machines are here 
now, commented Wayne, and announcement will be made very soon of the 
initial showing date. George Mahlum, Ralph Cragen and Wayne spent several 
days in Chicago the past week looking at the new Seeburg equipment am' 
feel that the new line will have the greatest impact any phonograph has hai 
on the industry. Wayne mentioned that this is the one machine that will havi 
tremendous location demand. Phil Robinson has been demonstrating the ne’ 
Chicago Coin “Players Choice” bowler to many operators from the loc 
territory. . . . Sam Ricklin, at California Music Co., reports that business oi 
“Coin Machine Row” should return to a normal pace now that the Work 
Series has drawn to a close. Buddy Robinson feels that “A House, A Car am 
A Wedding Ring”, by Mike Preston on the London label, should definite! 
be one of the big records in the very near future. . . . Some of the visitin; 
operators on Pico this week were: Mr. & Mrs. Beaver, Lancaster; Wall 
Andrew, Lompoch; Bill Bradley, Covina; Gene DeVilbis, Big Bear; Fra 
Totzke, Moiave; Oscar Holtzhausen, Tehachepi; Roger Plante, Shatter; T; 
Simonson, Bill Shaffer, Bakersfield; Lawrence Raya, Colton.

ST. LOUIS, MO.— Universal Match 
Corporation, this city, announced to- 
day that it has agreed to pui’chase all 
the voting common stock of National 
Rejectors, Incorporated, St. Louis, 
not owned by it heretofore. Based 
upon National Rejectors’ present in- 
come, the acquisition of this stock 
should add approximately 50 cents 
per share to Universal’s over-all earn- 
ings. 

After acquisition, Universal’s total 
income will be reported on a consoli- 
dated basis. The purchase of the in- 
terests in this stock should be con- 
summated shortly after January 1, 
1959. 

Although this transaction will give 
Universal ownership of all shares, 
except for a minor part of some Class 
B nonvoting stock, National Rejectors 
will continue to be maintained as a 
separate and individual operation. 
Universal first acquired an interest 
in National Rejectors in September, 
1956. 

National Rejectors, the nation’s 
largest manufacturers of coin mech- 
anisms, is planning to introduce a 
number of important new products 
and developments at the annual con-

How To Use i 

“The Cash Box Price Lists” 

[Also known as the “C. M. I. (Coin Machine 
Industry) BLUE BOOK”] 

FOREWORD: Many times, wide differences appear 
in the quotation of high and low prices of certain 
equipment. Like any true reporter “The Price Lists" 
can only feature the market prices as they are 
quoted. “The Price Lists” acts exactly the same as 
the market quotation board at the Stock Exchange— 
posting the prices as they are quoted for the past 
week, regardless of how much they may seem to he 
out of line. Some prices do not change for months. 
“The Price Lists,” rather than show no price, retain 
the last known quotations for such equipment to 
that the subscriber at least has the last known prices 
as a basis to work with. Prices may be very widely 
divergent. Someone on the West Coast may feel a 
certain machine worth $150.00 whereas someone on 
the East Coast may think it worth but $75.00. Of 
course, serial, appearance, demand, territory, quan- 
tity, and condition of equipment must be taken into 
consideration. (Some equipment offered by outstand- 
ing firms, having a reputation for shipping com- 
pletely reconditioned machines, will be offered at 
higher prices than others, due to the added cost of 
reconditioning.) “The Price Lists” reports each quo- 
tation exactly as it is made and depends on the sub- 
scriber to make average price adjustments to fit the 
peculiarities of his territory. 

METHOD: “The Price Lists” should be read as 
follows: First price listed is lowest price quoted for 
the week; Second price listed is highest priee 
quoted. 

FOREIGN BUYERS: To cover cost of packing, 
crating, shipping, ettL, figure an additional $20 to 
$25 on Pin Games — and $25 to $30 on Phonographs.
