The famous Mother of the Blues doesn't want you to ever forget her-that's how much she loves her friends! So we put her picture on her latest record, 'Dream Blues.' On the other side is 'Lost Wandering Blues' by 'Ma.' Accompaniments by Pruitt Twins on those guitars that made Kansas City famous.... This is the first time, to our knowledge, that any artist's picture has ever appeared on a record. Paramount is always first with the features - Chicago Defender ad, 7 June 1924 for Ma Rainey's souvenir record

thanks for posting those catalog covers. very cool stuff. & personally, there is nothing prettier than those early gibson small sunbursts  :P
i also found it interesting how the '58 & '59 covers featured guitars with p90 pickups. by the way they are talked about, i would have thought gibson had switched to using paf's (humbuckers) on most of their guitars by '57-'58. also, the byrdland model was by billy byrd & hank garland. hence it's name.
& a little bit of worthless knowledge, "tv yellow" was a color that they thought would look good on black & white television screens.
