The music's not bad, and we get a chance to hear the lovely voice of the recently deceased "Lady in Blue," June Winters. Read about her here and here. The second piece notes that she was married totrumpet player and songwriter Hugo Peretti. Meanwhile, we see a "Hugh E. Perette" on this label ("Choral Direction By..."). Verrry interesting.
You'll hear three of the four Spear Records sides. (Did Wrigley's ever talk to this company about its label design? Funny--I'm in the mood for gum.) You would be hearing all four discs, but I somehow messed up the first rip and didn't feel like redoing it. Nothing exciting on the missing disc--I swear.
