    Spin-O-Rama pressing ft. Filmotype Hunter.

    Filmotype Hunter for the title of Hawaiian Interlude, a record of Pacific music recorded by Jonnie Aluani and his Orchestra, as released around 1957 by Spin-O-Rama Records (shown above).

    This “musical travelog in Tru-Sound” was “issued on at least 10 labels, and credited to artists Terry McKee and His Band, Willie Alunuai And His Band, Harry Kaapuni And His Royal Polynesians, Jonnie Aluani And His Orchestra, Luke Leilani & His Hawaiian Rhythm, or Alan Makara And Orchestra (and possibly others).”

    The images below show two other pressings featuring the same photograph and other Filmotype faces. The one by Pirouette Records has Quota, a variant of their extrabold geometric sans serif Free, with rough contours. The track names are set in bold caps from Vogue.

    The version by Parade Records (1957) shows red caps from Adam, one of the many casual brush alphabets in the Filmotype library. The record here is credited to Willie Alunuai and his Band, and instead of “Tru-Sound”, it’s “High Fidelity”.
