RCA Victor Pajama Party EP (Question?)

Post by Mrs Ritchie Valens » 12 Jul 2019 16:18

:?
So, I have this 45 by varius artists, but it features singer Julius La Rosa, and it came out in 1957.
That's all the information that I could find on it. My question is did RCA really put out pajama party albums? And, what was the point in RCA putting out this little EP?

It was a promotional offering from some company. RCA did a lot of Promo EP 45 offerings for various companies in the 1950's. It was a nice thing to offer a customer who bought some product.

So, did RCA really put out pajama party albums as this little EP suggests?

Not per se. Unless their artist or producer decided to make one.

I have a multi-disc boxed set of the soundtrack squirrelled away somewhere. I've no idea of the condition of the records; my memory says the box is a bit tatty. Here is a Discogs link to various issues in various formats (mine is on 45-rpm records):

That's not really what I'm talking about, but I love musicals so will have to check that one out.
