I posted these long ago when doing the 78 rpm records. Here they are with the Scheherazades. Unsigned, possibly Frank Decker design. The 78 rpm original is the best, but the reuse of the drawing on the lp and 45 rpm sets are still nice.

I especially like the one that reads “I dig Rimsky-Korsakov”. The last gasp of the middle-brow American taste, an attempt to make classical hip for the 60s generation. I will probably post the 78 rpm Scheherazades next, even though I posted them 3 years ago.

the coollest one of these is the one on 16 rpm on Vox. It is the only 16 rpm record I have ever seen. Same music as four lps, I think.

Tops was a budget label, not very well pressed records sold at rock bottom prices. The Australian one is insane, the main themes from numerous classical recordings.

scheherazade on telefunken in the US

Scheherazade-TelefunkenLGX66018-Andre-box Scheherazade-TelefunkenLGX66018-Andre-inside Scheherazade-TelefunkenTC8011-Andre Scheherazade-TelefunkenTC8042-Schmidt Scheherazade-TelefunkenTCS18042-Schmidt

Telefunken made an effort to break into the American market in the 1950s.  The first one of these is a box set, except there is only one disk in it.  Very high quality packaging, I show the box cover and the inner sleeve cover.  Then they reissued that record.  One of the great things about collecting these Scheherazades was learning all the strange marketing approaches that went on in the field of classical music.
