Surprisingly, the Rodzinski "Scheherazade" isn't among the first LPs
listed in the
1949 catalog..its first reissue seems to be Entre RL 3001 with a
something like XLP 9601. This was the only Scheherazade they had, and
it would have
been a likely candidate for transfer to LP in the experimental stages
While we're at it, the first Children's LP from Columbia, JL 8001, was
done by Gene Kelly.
