Aging myself again but my first album was 78 RPM (NO that's not a misprint, I said 78 RPM) and they were mail order only. The songs on them were popular charted songs at the time but were "only" cover tunes by some studio groups and musicians - - not by the original artists. I've still got them around here somewhere and if I can find them I'll post up a couple of pics. They should be pretty sought after collectables, I would think???
