Decca Record Label Extended Plays – Part 1

The Decca Easy Listening Era 1956 into 1957

Bill Haley and His Comets snuck into this era starting in 1954 but as a rock/youth pop attracting act – they stood alone on Decca until a little “Miss Dynamite” came along.

Decca EP 2209 – Bill Haley and His Comets

In 1954, the release of this extended play (and associated singles) by Decca was a game changer – Haley had made the decision to cut back on touring and promote his music publishing companies Valley Brook, Arcade and Seabreeze.    Haley’s publicists land recording contracts for not only Haley with Decca but his entire stable of artists placing them on many labels.  This was Decca’s first entry into the yet largely misunderstood youth market.
