Apollo Label-Call Me Darling-1957

Above: Label image of Apollo 518 released in 1957. From Trade Magazine Column (Sept. 1957): "Apollo's Charles Merenstein... flipped about his new fem chantress, Dolly Lyon. Pre-tests of her "Palm Of Your Hand," which will be released immediately, are so overpowering it is hard for him to stay objective about the wax."
