Grand Award Odds and Ends, and a Steinweiss

A Steinweiss on London that I don’t think I ever posted. Grand Awards numbered in the 500s, 600s and a 900, and 3 samplers. Children of Paris is a wonderful boxed set, lots of Tracy Sugarman illustrations.

Grand Award Records 400s


The next few Grand Awards, the last ones I have with catalog numbers in the 400s. A wide range of illustrator: Tracy Sugarman, Caspar Pinsker Jr, S Neil Fujita, the first appearance of Charles E Murphy, Geismar, Hoffman, Jerry Smith. As usual, the music is not to my taste. But the humor of Dayton Allen is still pretty good.

More Grand Award records


The next bunch. The first few GA 400s are clearly a different series from all the others, being sampler albums.
