Billboard (December 16, 1957)There was an explosion of new space-themed label names, among them, Orbit.
Hollywood – Now that we’re concerned with satellites, sputniks and the like, disk promotion man Irwin Zucker figures ther’s gotta be an « Outer Space Top Ten» To help the Martian d.j. programming, Zucker compiled the following list :
1 The Last Time I Saucer Paris
2 Ol’ Rocket Chair’s Got Me
3 It’s Moon In January
4 Don’t Satellite Under The Apple Tree
5 How Comet You Do Me Like You Do, Do, Do ?
6 Martian Thru Georgia
7 You’re Getting To Be An Orbit With Me
8 Oh, How I Missile You Tonight
9 I’ve Grown Accustomed To Your Space
10 My Sphere Lady
I've collected here pictures of the different Orbit labels that I can find. Only one picture for each label.
