Vancouver Singers
On Newest Records

Hughes, Smalley, De Carlo,
Rock-Roll Group Featured
By JACK CULLEN
Vancouver Sun: Nov. 22/57

   Vancouver singers are in the limelight this week with releases on many major labels and, of course, ultimate distribution to all corners of the continent.
   The new Crown long-play, "A Tribute to Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey," features ex-Vancouverite Bob Hughes vocalizing with members of the original Dorsey Brothers Orchestra.
   He had a season on the "Harmony House" show from the stage of the Orpheum Theatre and several seasons on the radio version of the Burns "Chuck Wagon."
   The same long play features a group of vocalists billed as the Jack Travis singers, one of which is Bud Smalley, another Vancouverite who made the trek southward a few years ago.
   Bud is the brother of Felix and Cardo Smallery.
   A new long play has just arrived from England featuring Edmund Hockridge, billed as "A Canadian in London."  Hockridge is also well known for his work in this area.
   Within the next week the first records by Vancouver's young rock and roll group, "The Prowlers," will be on the shelves.
   Finally another Vancouverite has signed a contract to disc for the Dot Record Co. in Hollywood. King Edward students of 1940 will remember her fine contralto voice in the high school choral groups, and of course if you go to the movies you've seen her--Yvonne De Carlo.




Merv Plugs His Records On Radio
Vancouver Sun: Nov. 22/57
NEW YORK --- For selling records, many musical VIPs insist, there's nothing like television. Now along comes Merv Griffin who says radio is just as good, if not better.
   P.S--Griffin is just starting a new radio program.
   Actually, this program Griffin is doing, via ABC-Radio, is unique in these days of big TV budgets. The Merv Griffin Show is a full hour radio program, something that hasn't happened in years.
"I think this will help my record sales tremendously," says Griffin. "I've had everything in my career--except a hit record. It would be nice. A hit record or two and up goes your asking price for everything.

RED'S RECORD RACK
Country Music
Comes to Fore
by RED ROBINSON
Vancouver Sun: Nov. 22/57
   Today's hit parade is 25 per cent western or country songs.
   Examples are "Fraulein" by Steve Lawrence and Bobby Helms, "Blue Doll" with Anita Carter, "Wake Up Little Susie," by the Everley Brothers and "Uh Huh" by Sonny James.
   Country music is in the process of becoming accepted on every level. Cash Box magazine says, "Country music is part of that American picture.
  "We can expect it to grow and expand and reach new heights not only in the regions where it originated but in areas all over the nation which until recently had never had the opportunity to know and understand and like it."
   The reason country music is being accepted is that it is not pure country but a mixture of rock, pop and country.
   Will this trend towards country music continue? Well each year trends start and the new year is only a few weeks away.
  After the public has listened to four or five weeks of Christmas songs they will reshuffle their tastes and expect  some new sounds.
*      *      *
   Shortly there will appear on the local movie scene a motion picture showcase of pop music and disc jockeys. This show is called "Jamboree."
   In the tremendous line-up of talent are such names as Fats Domino, Buddy Knox, Jimmy Bowen, Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Gracey, Count Basie, Carl Perkins and Frankie Avalon.
*      *      *
   The Christmas music is on its way. Dot Records of Los Angeles has announced its big Christmas album releases.
   Prize package is Pat Boone's EP entitled "Merry Christmas." On this album are "White Christmas," "Silent Night," "Santa Claus Is Back In Town" and "Jingle Bells."
   It's a coincidence that these songs are also on Elvis's Christmas album.
*       *       *
   It'll be a merry Christmas for Elvis Presley in more ways than one.
   This is the fourth year that Elvis has been on the go. This Christmas he will celebrate a total of more than 20,000,000 record sales.
   And he will celebrate a contract for three pictures a year for seven years with Hal Wallis.
   A 20-year contract with RCA Victor guarantees him $1,000 a week regardless of his other activities.
