Disc 3: F15462: If I Loved You / Almost Like Being In Love

A 78 RPM VERSION, CC-147 ?

According to Jim Marshall’s discography, a 78 rpm version of this album was issued already two years earlier, in 1948. However, I have not been able to find any proof for this in contemporary newspapers or in Billboard magazine – nor have I seen photos of the 78 rpm version on the internet. This is why I haven’t mentioned it in the discography for 1948.
For two reasons, it is likely that there HAS been a 78 rpm version, though.

1: virtually every album that was released around 1950 was also issued on 78rpm, because many consumers didn’t possess a 33 rpm or 45 rpm turntable yet.
2: the recordings for this album were made at the end of 1947. Why would Capitol have waited more than two years before they issued them?

For these reasons, I think that I’ll have to add CC-147 to this discography, but I would like to see a proof of its existence. Help is welcome, please write to me at
