Enoch Light My Fire

Enoch Light is a fascinating fellow, and the founder of one of my favorite record labels - Command - known for its focus on high-fidelity recording techniques, excellent cover art, and somewhat-extravagant LP packaging. Grand Award was another of his labels, albeit more of a budget line.

Light issued a series of "Roaring 20's" LPs in the late 50's, but they experienced a resurgence in popularity in the late 60's and early 70's. This particular version is from 1974, after Grand Award was acquired by ABC - thus, it's billed as an ABC Westminster/Grand Award release. It also had a previous release as GASD-229 (and there are versions with the exact same title with completely different track lists and artwork).
