The Golden Highlights - Vodka



Here is a little something to get you through the weekend! Some VODKA!

Obviously a play on "The Champs" on their 1958 hit "Tequila". I couldn't find too much about this little 45 here because every time I looked up Golden Highlights and or Vodka all i got back was taste testing results for vodka!!!

I did find a Hanover Records 45 discography that states this here little goof ball came out in 1959 and a little bit of info that the label was started by Steve Allen because of some dispute with Dot Records over the Non-release of a Jack Kerouac album called Poetry for the Beat Generation. A record that Hanover eventually put out after Dot pulled it. 100 or so copies came out on Dot before it was pulled. If in fact this is the same Hanover records...?

I hope you all are having some fun over here in my new little vinyl blog world. Because I'm having a blast sharing some vinyl love with you all!

So enjoy some Vodka! I'll be back next week for some more vinyl treats!

Yes, this is the same Hanover. Bob Thiele (of later Impulse Records fame), who owned the label together with Allen, has a lot of stuff about it in his autobiography What a Wonderful World.
