Cricket Records

Someone once asked me about Cricket Records (as they always seem to turn up in any random box of musty old 45s and this label design is iconic, if the actual music garbage with modern kids)

Yes, they were a children's record label for 45 and 78 RPM records and they were an early product of Pickwick Records, a $1.98 budget record label of the '50s and '60s. In fact, Cricket was certainly the very last record label in America to regularly press 78 RPM records, well into the '60s (and by some reports, until 1968!)
