PETER DE ANGELIS, Happy Mandolin, 1958Posted: January 21, 2011
This is another Heliodor pressing of a small US independent label release. Originally published by the Philiadelphia based Chancellor label, it is also another record made by the record label owner himself. Italian-American Peter De Angelis and his partner Bob Marcucci owned Chancellor records. Together they were responsible for the success of Italian-American teen idols Fabian and Frankie Avalon.
For this Heliodor release, two Peter De Angelis Chancellor releases (Happy Mandolin, Chancellor # 1022, 1958 and Exotic Guitar, Chancellor #1042 , 1959) were paired together.
