"SEAFAIR RECORDS: SEATTLE'S SWINGIN" '60s MUSIC COMPANY"
by Peter Blecha
[Courtesy & copyright, 2008, HistoryLink.org]

Of all the Pacific Northwest’s pioneering record companies, it was Seafair Records that perhaps best embodied Seattle’s innocent early days when a good honest effort would bring success. A true “mom and pop” enterprise long run by founders Tom and Ellen Ogilvy, Seafair (and its associated imprints Bolo, Virgelle, and NOLTA Records) can, among other achievements, be credited with issuing the most consistent stream of high-quality 1960s rockin’ teen-R&B of any label in the region.

TOM OGILVY WRITES SEAFAIR SONG

"Greater Seattle's drive to raise $25,000 to finance the Seafair  Trophy purse race on Lake Washington Sunday, August 5th, got an "assist" from a Capitol Hill song writer and Associated Grocers this week. The grocery concern announced that it has financed the making of 45 rpm and 78 rpm records of a folk song entitled "Old Rooster Tail (The Legend Of A Proud Racing Boat)". Written by Thomas B. Ogilvy, 1236 19th Avenue No., with royalty proceeds going to the Seafair race fund. Ogilvy's song has been adopted for the theme of this year's Seafair. Pressed under the label of the Seafair Records Company, the records went on sale at music stores and record counters Thursday.  The Associated Grocers will also market the record at their Seattle Thriftway stores. On Capitol Hill it will be Price and Stephens Thriftway, 416 15th Ave, No. Sale price is 89 cents for the 45s and 98 cents for the 78s. Ogilvy wrote the folk song as a salute to this year's first running of the Seafair Trophy race.  A unique feature of the record is the authentic roar of the hydroplanes running on Lake Washington during last year's Gold Cup race, which is used to open and close the song. Recorded by the "Seagull Six" the song features the Whitney Brothers with the E'lan Trio."

If there WAS an "official" Seattle World's Fair song this was IT!!

Many of these retail discs were sold in a cardboard mailer. The package could be sent anywhere in the U.S.by affixing a  4 1/2 cent postage stamp.

The mailers   were white with red and yellow accents/lettering: MEET ME IN SEATTLE AT THE FAIR. The Century 21 logo was to the upper left,  while  (black) wording SEATTLE - THE WORLD'S FAIR CITY spread all across the bottom. Just above SEATTLE  was a circular logo and the wording: A MUSICAL INVITATION  IN RECORD FORM. The area to the right of that logo contained the TO: [address location].

Top left of the mailer was the return address space. Top right was the PLACE STAMP HERE notation. On many mailers the white space between the return address and postage box was blank. SOME mailers, however, had this this space filled with a sticker which read: OFFICIAL SOUVENIR RECORD OF THE SEATTLE WORLD'S FAIR.
