There were a couople of records thqt I took hojme. One was a lt3er made Frank Sinatra compilation and the other one, which I just thought was fun was this:
The Grasshoppers and introducing the Chipmunk Song! Obviously a kids record I did some reseach and searching. This record on the Spin-O-Rama label was released in 1959. It is in really good shape and the markings in the empty areas of the vinyl tell that this is an original release.
Since neither Grandma nor Papa collected old records, my guess is that it was bought in or around 1959. My Mom, an only child, was 14. It leaves me confused! But, when I was 14, I read Diamond D and the Dreadful Dragon for a Forensics competition in school, so it might have been something Mom had for school. I don't know.
Unfortunately, this is one I'm sure I'll never know. It's still a neat find and I'll give it a spin on my turnatable some day.
