Mr. Lucky's Presents Reedy Hall and The Hallmarks

Till I Can't Take It Any More
Mr. Lucky's Presents Reedy Hall and The Hallmarks
Fireside Studios - Nashville, TN.

Private press engineered by Porter Wagoner. Jacket notes by Faron Young: These days it takes a lot of things to make a good album. It takes good songs, good singers, good musicians, good studio, etc. When you listen to this album, I think you'll find it to be a record that stands on its own. Good luck.

This is Joe Cowan's third album (out of a possible four). Check out a sample from Cowan's second album Joe Cowan At The Twin Keyboards.

From the back cover: We feel that the "Magic Of Music" presents Joe's individual styling and sincere artistry at the peak of his growing reputation as Florida's most beloved entertainer at the organ. Joe is his fifth year at the Bali, one of Daytona Beach's most popular and busy supper clubs.

Music Man - Karl Cole

New York New York
Music Man
Featuring Karl Cole
Pied Piper Pizza Peddler - Universal Mall, Warren, Michigan

Since I've been collecting I've found what seems like many albums featuring pipe organs installed in businesses such as pizza parlors. One album featured an organ installed in a motorcycle dealership.

From the back cover: This organ began its career on December 24, 1927 in the United Artists Theatre, Detroit, Michigan, where it was used to accompany silent films. The United Artist organ was stored away in the theatre basement until 1975 when it was resurrected by Henry W. Hunt and Kenneth E. Saliba, owners of the Pipe Piper Pizza Peddler.
