In The Land Of Hi-Fi

High Fidelity was a revolution in sound in the mid 1950’s. Better turntables, better amplifiers, better speaker systems. First we had hi-fi mono, but soon stereo alone was not enough. It was Hi and it was Fi! Between 1957 and 1959 almost every record that hit the shop had the word on it. No escape possible! From “Contrasts in Hi-Fi” to “Music For Hi-Fi Bugs” and from Dinner Music by Spike Jones and The Rippling Rhythm Of Shep Fields to Harpo Marx, everybody was “In Hi-Fi”. Let’s travel in the wonderful land of hi-fi!
