The CALICO Label

Walt Shrum seems to have been around for ever, his career dates way back to the 1930's. Apart from the many recordings that he made over three or four decades, he also appeared in numerous 'B' Westerns. His recordings on CALICO sound as if they were recorded much earlier, in fact the featured vocalists on these offerings can be traced back to his CONSTELLATION recordings of the mid forties.

To avoid any confusion 
CALICO W-1001 is coupled with W-1002
CALICO W-1003 is coupled with W-1004

  1. 1003 & 1002 are probably reissue of 78rpm Crystal 391.
    Same artist and vocal credits. Matrix for these respective sides CRS-678 & CRS 679.
