Believing that the Lady from the Vinyl and Postcard art collected are indeed one in the same, I have noticed Photographic moniker of Billy Howell and have tried to find out about the Photographer, who I have gleaned was a Honolulu based Photographer thru the 1950s and have researched this gentleman and his work, albeit to little avail, related solely to this woman, whoever she may be.
Still at the very beginnings of a project and hoping that someone may remember something or the lady herself may step forward is indeed very exciting.
Cheers!

I kind of doubt it's Rivera, because as Miss Hawaii, she most likely would have been IN Hawaii, and this picture was taken in a studio on the mainland I believe, on the same set as some other budget LPs. Also, I've never seen this woman in any post cards from Hawaii, which is also generally a sign that she's not IN Hawaii. Probably a series of photos sold for whatever purpose.






One credits George Pickow of Three Lions as photographer. Another credits the "color transparency" to Three Lions. The others say nothing.
Same set, different model.


And here's one of her in the same session. THis one, a Santo & Johnny release from Germany, on Ariola, I believe a German budget label.

Perhaps it's possible she was one of the dancers at the Hawaiian Room at New York's Lexington Hotel as some of thiose women showed up on LP covers shot on the mainland, but I don't think she is.

Scooped these up in New Orleans this past weekend for under $5 a piece.



The bottom right "Hawaii" one is from the Surfmen. I didn't realize they had another album besides Exotic Island. And the "Polynesia" one top right is by the Polynesians and is the same album as "Polynesian Paradise" by Chango and the Polynesians with a different, more suitable cover, plus it's on red vinyl.

I was planning to rip some of my Hawaiian and exotica records that I can't find on slsk to MP3 but just realized my new computer doesn't have any sort of mic input, which makes absolutely no sense to me. I used to just use the preamp of my receiver and run a 1/8" line from there into the computer and record to Audacity. shop99er and Ghostsoldier, you guys mentioned you were ripping your records. Any way you can set up your MP3s for sharing? I'd love to add some more music to my playlist.
