Groovy Vinyl: Children for Dora Hall
A Bit of Backstory
I didn’t recognize the artist on this latest vinyl to cd conversion for a customer, nor the label (Cozy Record Company), so I did a quick search to get more info.
This fan site for Dora Hall is a good start, but doesn’t have too much real data. Turns out Dora Hall is the stage name of the wife of Leo Hulseman (1898-1989). Leo Hulseman’s main claim to fame was the fact that he is the founder and owner for many years of the Solo Cup Company. Supposedly, Dora Hall records were often a free promotions for Solo Cup customers. The company is still privately owned and run by the Hulseman family.
Next time you pick up a plastic cup at a party, you’ll have a bit of trivia to drop on the old folk!
This album has no dates on it, and it’s supposedly been repressed many times, so there’s no telling it’s actual date of release, but I’ll make an educated guess and say 1960 or so. If you look closely at the line of children on the front, one is holding a tiny sign. Maybe this album was owned by Yahoo founders David Filo and Jerry Yang?
