Stereo Showcase

Should I - Jack Marshall
Stereo Showcase
Capitol Dimensional Stereo SKAO 1268
1959

From Billboard - November 9, 1959: The set gives a representative sample of material contained in 12 LP's, the label's current release. It's predecessor proved a strong item saleswise, and this could follow suit. As a sound demonstration disk, or for a preview of things to be heard in the releases the set is ideal. There is also a booklet that lists the other selections in the various albums from which these tracks are taken. Low-price should also be a buy incentive.

Lush print production is the highlight of this gatefold designed package that features a 12 page insert bound to the spine (see the Billy May page sample above).

Brassmen's Holiday - Billy May
Banana Boy - Les Baxter
The Wooden Soldier And The China Doll - Joe "Fingers" Carr
Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries - Nelson Riddle
Mocking Bird - Ray Anthony
Indiana - Red Nichols
Swanee Cha River Cha - The Mighty Accordion Band
Should I - Jack Marshall
Fire - Goddness - Webley Edwards
Bizet Has His Day - Les Brown
Frenesi - Jackie Davis
American Patrol - Felix Slatkin
