Interestingly, there are THREE copies of the 78rpm set on auction site.  All have the
cover photo of (I assume) Petti.  One of the sets has additional statement NON-BREAKABLE Vinylite.

So I assume the 78's were released on shellac, and also plastic (Some of the Asch Russian sets were available
in both materials).  Any other labels follow this practice?  OR perhaps, if the set was kept available into
the late 40's/early 50's they upgraded to non-breakable material for practical reasons.  The cost of the Asch
vinylite 78rpm sets was higher than the shellac version.
  The 10" LP Petti TWENTIES jacket has a color cover with typical JOHN HELD Jr. characteristic 1920's images. Does
anyone have this LP with the 78 cover, or some other variant??
  Thanks.
  Best wishes, Thomas.

 My copy in inventory is diferent.  Sepia and light yellow. "Melodies of the
Twenties. :iberty Music Shop. No album number. Records L-272-6.  Man in tux
(Petti?) in foreground. Tropical beach on left. Large hotel on right
(Savoy-Plaza?).  My inventory copy of the "Melodies of the Thirties" set
shows the band in black & white photo, red type. (6 piecs).  L-313-7. No
cover design credits.

Both have problems with the spine cloth splitting.  Both are in E-/E cond.
and would be $ 25 per set + shipping, if anyone is interested.
