Texas Label 78s Exhibit Opens at Buddy Holly Center

Buddy Holly Center

A new exhibit opens this week at an area museum.

The Buddy Holly Center has announced their new exhibition, “Texas Label 78s: From Country to Bilingual Jive” will run through August 19th.

This particular exhibition highlights independent Texas record labels that produced vinyl 78 rpm records from 1946 through 1960.

The labels and audio selections include country and gospel music as well as animal and square dance calls.

While many of these records were produced in larger Texas markets, a considerable number came out of Lubbock, Seminole, Dalhart, and Wichita Falls.

Some of the well-known musicians who recorded in this format include George Jones, Little Richard, Johnny Ace, and Flaco Jimenez.

The Buddy Holly Center is located at 1801 Crickets Avenue in Lubbock. More information is available at www.buddyhollycenter.org.
