This child's old record is a picture record from the Pix Records company of New York. The plastic record has a cardboard and paper back. The playable side of the record has a picture of a young boy all tuckered out and sleeping with his clothes on. Around the outer edge there are little pictures with captions that tell a story. Under the title there is a 1941 copyright. The other side is covered with information including the music and the words about John going to sleep with his stockings on, one shoe off and one shoe on. There is an Important message about playing the record only on ELECTRICAL phonographs and which needles should never be used. The 9 7/8” plastic laminated cardboard record has a paper tape edge that is original. It has a hole in the center and another off center….I don’t know why because other records by the same company have only the center hole.
It appears to be in good condition with minimal wear and light scratches and scuffs which might cause minor distortion when played but since I don’t have an electric 78 player I can’t say for certain. It is being sold as-is.
