I'm a record collector with few boxes of old 45 and 78 rpm records, most of which have not been organized. The idea here is to catalogue a record a day ... get it all done little by little. It's going to be a fairly long ride and it will get even longer as I go, because I'm still looking for more of these little round black objects.

Record #0174: Dream a Little Dream of Me / It Couldn’t Happen To a Sweeter Girl – JACK OWENS
have been something like “the song of the summer” in 1950, when seven recordings
of it were released. The other six were done by Louis Jordan, Vaughn Monroe,
Ella Fitzgerald, Frankie Laine, Dinah Shore and Bing Crosby & Georgia Gibbs
(duet). The original recording was done by Ozzie Nelson (the father of Ricky
Nelson) in 1931.
well-known cover versions of the song were released by Doris Day, Nat King
Cole, Louis Armstrong, Barbara Carroll, Dean Martin and The Mamas & the
Papas (with Cass Elliot on lead). Michael Bublé has done a cover of it as well.
price:Not listed in Goldmine catalog.
Apparently this is fairly rare, but I don’t think there’s too much collectors’
demand for the record.
