American 78s – The Last Year

Subtitle or Edition: 
June 1959 to June 1960 was the last year that 78 rpm records were commercially produced in America
Annotation: 

An WordPress-based blog site that seeks to document mainstream US-pressing 78 RPM records made during the last year or so of their production (June of 1959 to the Summer of 1960). Includes basic discographical information such as catalog numbers and recording/release dates as well as pictures of each individual recording. Does not include children’s records, ethnic recordings, and "budget" recordings on labels such as Promenade and Hurrah! that were issued on the 78 RPM format in the US until the late-1960s. Currently has around 40 entries mostly in the Blues, R&B, and Rock music genres (which are the music genres most frequently found on later pressing US 78 RPM records).
