Greenfields

Well, this has to be a rare artifact.  The Bell label was one of those budget labels, like Promenade and Hurrah!, that used unknown artists to record current popular songs.  They would then sell the records at budget prices.  To my knowledge there is no business model like this in the 21st Century.   So what about this release?  Not only was Bell 143 a summer of 1960 record, but it even came with a 78 picture sleeve!  “Greenfields” by the Catala Trio was a cover of a hit folk song by the Brothers Four.  The flip side was “The Madison” by Bobby Lucas, which was a 1960 hit by Al Brown’s Tunetoppers.
