Came across several 45's issued mid 50's and released in Japan. Most are in special sleeves
(label names familiar - higher quality paper with full back & artwork on back). Most 45's have Japanese printing below artist name. Were these issued to US military personnel or to the Japanese consumers?

Probably the latter - in a bulk lot I acquired recently I found the lyric sheet from Little Richard's "Lucille" on the Japanese King label (no record, darn it) and the lyrics were both in Japanese and (hilariously translated) English. I assume it was from the 1950s.
