This fabulous find was just another great vintage Hawaiian classic album to add to my collection, until I realized it was part of Elliott Roosevelt's record collection and was signed by Harry Baty himself.
The inscription reads:
"With fondest Aloha
To the Roosevelt's
Minewa and Elliot [sp]
The Polynesians partnered with Louis Armstrong among others and Harry Baty reportedly emceed at LA's Seven Seas, one of the original tiki bars, as well as playing guitar there.
I haven't played the record, it has light scratches overall. It's NOT the colored vinyl version of this album.
Sleeve is in good condition with torn spine, some wear to edges and light wrinkling. I'm not an expert on records or grading so please ask questions.
This is one of my first posts here on Tiki Central. I've so enjoyed reading about the great collections and offerings. Thanks for being here.
