Jules Herman And His Orchestra


There were three discs that I know of that were recorded at Kay Bank and pressed with Soma catalog numbers in 1958, to commemorate the 100th year of the state's existence.  Each disc was issued with sheet music in a sturdy mailing envelope.  I'm not sure who the recipients were.  Perhaps a radio giveaway or members of the Minnesota Historical Society.  I have all three discs, but this one I am lacking the envelope and sheet music.  Will most likely find it someday, but for now I thought I'd share it, to get folks ready for the Minnesota State Fair, starting next week.

Side A vocal:  Lois Best
Sibe B vocal:  The Casualaires

A previous version of this post had an obituary.  I later learned that it was not the same person as found on this recording.
