In a recently acquired collection we have found a 3 inch record from the
Decca Personality Series, "Does Your Heart Beat for Me" by Russ Morgan, #25080.
Can anyone tell me a little about the history of 3 inchers and/or the Decca
It was mounted (glued) on a matte, along with a 7 inch disc, H Berliner
Gramophon record, "Romance for Trombone" Military Band (Bennet) Washington, D.C.
May 27, '97. No explanation for the juxtaposition, just matted and framed.
Philco-Ford tried to introduce a series of 3" flexible "Hip Pocket Records"
in the 60s. I wonder if Decca pressed these and even tried to issue some on
their own label.
I don't know, this one is definitely not flexible, it's about at thick as the Berliner, and they're both one-sided.
I've put them online if anyone is curious:
