Elektra Again

These are scans of a catalog (or flyer, really) for Elektra records that I found inside of Susan Reed Sings Old Airs From Ireland, Scotland And England (Elektra 26, 10" vinyl, 1954). The catalog is also from 1954, and shows all of the stuff you could buy at that time. In fact, the Susan Reed record is shown in the scan below at top left. Oddly enough, the last old catalog like this that I found in a record was also from Elektra. I don't know if they came in the record jacket originally, or if they were given away by the record dealer at the time of sale. Come to think of it, both records also included another insert with all the lyrics to the songs performed, so maybe the catalog went into any record that had another insert. Who knows? Anyhow, I thought some of you folks might think this interesting reading.
