New Artifacts Found Aboard Razorback

During the ongoing effort to preserve and restore the officer's Wardroom aboard Razorback, two vinyl record albums were found:

Both are American albums from Columbia Records.

One is Ray Conniff and the Singers, "Concert in Stereo - Live at the Sahara - Tahoe" (Columbia #G30122, released in 1969). Ray Conniff had 12 Top Ten LPs in the 1950's and 60's, with over 50 million total albums sold.

The other album is Lynn Anderson's "No Love at All" (Columbia #C 30099, released in 1970) It reached #22 on Billboard's Top Country Albums Chart and the title track reached #15 on Billboard's Top Country Singles Chart. (Ms. Anderson had several #1 Country Music hits. She is best known on the Pop Charts for "Rose Garden", which reached #3 in 1970.)

Both records are marked "TCG MURAT REIS" in pen across the top of the label. The Ray Conniff album is marked #"6", and the Lynn Anderson album is marked #"14".

These albums, along with the many other artifacts in our collection, provide facinating insights into Razorback's history, both as an American submarine and during her service as Murat Reis.
