RARITY # 61

UNE NUIT AU CHAMPAGNE
MARTHA LOVE ET SON ORCHESTRE DU KURSAAL D'OSTENDE
25 cm  Fiesta
I.S. 10.020       BELGIUM, 1955






The music on this old Belgian 25 cm (10") is  dance music / cocktail party music.  Not for the jazz purists.

I like those 10" on the Fiesta label with their cheap artwork, I have  already posted a couple in the past and will continue, I still have a couple to be digitsed.  I see them as artefact of a bygone era, post-war, pre-rock and roll Belgium. But change is already in the air and Rock and roll is pointing its nose, there is an instrumental version of Bill Haley s Mambo Rock on side B.
