The 1950s to 1960s was the heyday of small cheap record labels. Pirouette, Period, Paris, Plymouth and many other names were used to market whatever music they thought they could sell cheaply through unusual outlets. My university, Duke, had an annual record sale – I remember Everest records in particular at those sales back in 1973, long after Everest was no longer a quality concern.

Here are five issues of the same music – four in this post and the last one in the previous post. All Art Mooney, all with the same songs mostly in the same order under the same names. Each with a different approach to the front cover, trying to market what is actually pretty good music in five different ways.
