Bruce Davis Quintet At The Hacienda
Davista Records - Fresno, California
From the back cover: March 25, 1954 was the opening night for the Hacienda Motel in Fresno, Calif. On the bandstand was the Bruce Davis Quintet – up form Los Angeles for a 4 week engagement with a 4 week option. Over ten years later the group is still there. And, what's more, in addition to his position as orchestra leader, Bruce Davis has subsequently become entertainment director, member of the board of directors, and now general manage of the Fresno Hacienda. Quite a record in itself!
Group members include Bruce Davis, Frank Nelson, Doug Nye, John Bibb and Howard Perterson

The copy on the back cover goes into detail to prove George Wilcox's (Prince George Montague Antanasius Keeaumoku Wilcox) link to Keoua, Father of Kamelhameha the Great. I did a search and found a wiki page for who must be George Wilcox, but Antahasius is spelled Athanasius.
Something Special (Just For You)
From the back cover: You will find as you listen to the songs contained in the album, eleven years of hard work, dedication and love, sung from the heart of Freddie King. For it is a long way from Hamilton, Ohio to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, not only in miles, but, the many songs and long nights in between. Freddie was born in Hamilton, Ohio and moved to Florida eighteen years ago, and it was at age 16 that he seriously started singing.
