And you thought banks only gave away toasters!
Found this record in a Denver thrift. Very cool, previously-unknown discovery! There is no date on this freebie, but the original commercial release of this record was 1954. There can't have been too many of these given to local bank customers, so I'm guessing this Colorado record is a pretty scarce find.
The address shown for the Englewood State Bank (180 E Hampden) is now an eye clinic.
Liberace would often perform in Colorado. Staying at the Broadmoor, in Colorado Springs. In 1956, he visited Littleton, to crown the winner at the Centennial racetrack.
Then, as is usually the case, I found another similar Colorado record - for Denver's Bowman Biscuit Company. It just so happened that Bowman was the local sponsor of Liberace's national television show, in the mid 1950s.
Apparently there were several of these promotional Liberace records pressed, for other cities, which included premiums for local banks, furniture stores, shoe stores, grocery stores, and even a canned meat company! While most featured the song "Humoresque," I found other promotional discs, with "Dark Eyes" / "Lullaby" and "Minute Waltz" / "Blue Danube."
