EMI announced this day in 1959 that they were halting production of 78's

EMI announces they have now stopped producing 78rpm records this day in 1959 giving way to the more popular 7" 45rpms.  Pictured above are a couple of my favorite 78's...Big Mama Thornton's "Hound Dog" and Johnny Cash's "I Walk The Line".

Elvis- "Mystery Train" 78 (on Sun)

Robert Johnson- "Sweet Home Chicago" 78

Johnny Burnette Trio- "Honey Hush" 78
