1949

KING (No catalogue number) As AL GRANT and THE SATISFIERS I WISH I HAD A RECORD ) RUFE SMITH I WISH I HAD A RECORD ) RUFE SMITH This 78 has identical white labels and identical takes of the song on both sides. It does not seem to be a test pressing, as these are usually single-sided, and it is not a promo as this was the only one of the 11 songs Guy recorded for King which was not issued on a commercial 78. The reason for this double-sided pressing remains a mystery.

1952

NOV COLUMBIA (No catalogue number) (Matrix No. CO.48405) A HOUSE WITHOUT LOVE JIMMY CARROLL (Matrix No. CO.48409) ANGELS CRY (WHEN SWEETHEARTS TELL A LIE) JIMMY CARROLL COLUMBIA (No catalogue number) (Matrix No. CO.48405) A HOUSE WITHOUT LOVE JIMMY CARROLL (Matrix No. CO.48406) LOST HIGHWAY JIMMY CARROLL These 78s were used to promote the 'SONGS OF THE OPEN SPACES' LP. There were no commercially issued 78s equivalent to these promo issues.

1953

U.S. ARMY EUROPE SERVICE CLUB SHE WEARS RED FEATHERS MITCH MILLER RECORD ALBUM ASCR.181/2 Columbia Recording. This is a four track 78. Other three are by other artists. NOV COLUMBIA (No catalogue number) (Matrix No. CO.49837) THE CUFF OF MY SHIRT MITCH MILLER (Matrix No. CO.49837) THE CUFF OF MY SHIRT MITCH MILLER Occasionally, if a record company wanted to plug a particular song, they would issue that song on both sides of a promo so that the DJs had no choice but to play it. This is the only instance we know of where this happened with one of Guy's songs, and it is interesting to note that a "normal" promo of 'The cuff of my shirt' backed by 'Got a hole in my sweater' also exists.

ARMED FORCES RECORDS ARF E 10/11 GUY MITCHELL & DORIS DAY : GENTLY JOHNNY PAUL WESTON This is a three track 78. The other two tracks are by other artists. The Columbia recording is used under licence.

1959

c.MAR UNITED STATES ARMY RECRUITING SERVICE (No catalogue number) (Matrix No. OSS-1734) PEGGY LEE : BLUES IN THE NIGHT BENNY GOODMAN (Matrix No. OSS-1735) GUY MITCHELL: SINGING THE BLUES RAY CONNIFF This 45 is a radio commercial for recruitment into the U.S. Army, and the commercially issued OKeh and Columbia recordings are used. The radio announcer says both these songs come from Columbia's 'Hall of Fame' series which is restricted to million-selling discs. The Peggy Lee record was made in December 1941 by the Benny Goodman Sextet with Peggy Lee as the featured singer. The only 'Hall of Fame' release of this title was on an EP issued in 1958. The release date of this 45 is therefore an educated guess to coincide with Guy's 'Hall of Fame' EP release of 'Singing the blues' the following year.

1960

c.NOV UNITED STATES AIR FORCE PRESENTS MUSIC IN THE AIR (No catalogue number) (Program 141) FRANK SINATRA: OLD MACDONALD NELSON RIDDLE (Program 142) GUY MITCHELL : RIDIN' AROUND IN THE RAIN MONTY KELLY This 45 is a radio commercial for recruitment into the U.S. Air Force, and uses Frank Sinatra's and Guy's commercial recordings of these songs under licence from Capitol and Columbia.

COLUMBIA ST.1 (2 LPs) 'STAR TIME' THE ROVING KIND The Labels are noted 'NOT FOR SALE': This album was issued presumably to Radio Stations and Hi Fi dealers to promote the sound quality of Columbia's LPs. The sleeve states: 'AUDIO FIDELITY, A STUDY IN HI-FIDELITY SOUND, For those who can HEAR the difference!!!'

1955

COLUMBIA (No catalogue number) (LP) 'COLUMBIA HOUSE PARTY' TOO LATE (Matrix No. XLP.36209) MITCH MILLER'S NEW YORK HOUSE PARTY (Matrix No. XLP.36210) JO STAFFORD & PAUL WESTON'S HOLLYWOOD HOUSE PARTY This LP presents various Columbia artists in a House Party setting. Guy is featured in Mitch Miller's "party". The "guests" sing their songs informally. Guy accompanies himself on guitar, with 'Joe'(Joe Antman?) on piano, and The Four Lads coming in towards the end of the song, harmonising in the background. The LP was seemingly given free to Hi-Fi dealers to promote Columbia products, as the back of the sleeve is filled with photos and details of 15 Columbia Hi-Fi items.
