                                              The Imperial Albums 1956-1963

In the first five years most of his hitrecords were on the 78 rpm format, because the 45 rpm single and the 12 inch Lp (33rpm) didn't exist at that time. Till 1956 he had made about 30 singles (both 78 rpm and 45 rpm), many of them were hits, a-sides as well as b-sides; see my webpage "Imperial singles". So many of his earlier albums are in fact greatest hits albums.
