After Theatre At The Little Club - Kurt Maier

South Pacific Medley
After Theatre At The Little Club
Kurt Maier Piano And Rhythm
Decca DL 8699
1957

Curious recording from the veteran (five seasons) "house" artist appearing at Billy Reed's Little Club.

Apparently The Little Club was the first restaurant in America to be mentioned for serving the "Caesar Salad.

All I can think of is that The Little Club was such a popular place that someone at Decca thought that they could sell records based on the name alone. This recording is basic lounge. Usually pressings like this are found on private press or on smaller labels.
