I think it was "John F. Kennedy - A Memorial" which was the fastest selling LP in history for a while - something like 3 million copies in the first week or some fgure like that. There are at least 3 or 4 different titles which seem to crop up in every TUC collection.
A tough 45 is, ironically, on the otherwise common Hit label - label #99 which is also the only Hit 45 with a picture sleeve.
My personal prize is an LP of JFK presidential campaign spots to be broadcast in Wisconsin - no cover but I've never seen it before...and it has an edited version of Frank Sinatra's "High Hopes For Jack Kennedy" on it, too.

This 45 came from a radio station in the early 80s, & is a 1960 political campaign song[s]. Gee, I hope we don't have to give the other guy "equal time". Laughing

    I'm not really sure whether I know what you mean. In some areas of Germany, the 'Berliner' describes a sweet pastry similar like a doughnut, but without a hole in the middle. It's filled with fruit jam or plum jam (isn't it a fruit as well?). The residents of our capital city don't call this pastry 'Berliner', they call it 'Pfannkuchen'!

    JFK held his famous speech on June 26, 1963, after the 'Berlin Wall' was build by the communists. Since then the city has been cut into two parts. It isn't easy to translate the meaning of, "Ich bin ein Berliner" proper. This means, he is a resident of this separated city. Someone who won't give up hope, and never lost the positive view of life, even if the times had been hard or even dreadful. At this time Berliner was a different word for unrelenting people which never lost their lust for life. By the way, this 7" single plays at the speed of 33 rpm and has a picture sleeve displaying JFK during his speech at the 'Schoeneberger' Rathaus (Townhall). Tempo Records 4149, 1963.
    Twisted Evil very happy

wurlitzer - that's Frank Sinatra's most valuable 45. He's not credited but that's definitely his voice on the "High Hopes" side. Is yours a blue label? Most every copy I see is green.
annaloog: I think the only way the phrase could translate as "I am a jelly donut" is if he said "Ich bin ein Bismarck"!!! (nuts...just made myself hungry...)

I don't think these are worth much. I have 5 or 6 of them and I got all of them in thrift stores.

I see Kennedy albums all the time. The local thrift which has started again jacking up prices has tried to sell the memorial album for $6, also same price for a "Ray Coniff Plays the Bee Gees"!
