| Dora Hall is known as "The Queen Of The Vanity Records.” But not much is known about Dora prior to her vanity career. It's been said she was a so-so cabaret act in the '20s, (she claimed she was entertaining troops during World War I.) We do know that in 1926 she met and married Leo Hulseman, who became a wealthy disposable cup magnate and the founder/ CEO of the Solo Cup Company.
But by the early '60s, Dora Hall, now an aging grandmother, had decided to re-enter show business. Except the industry wasn't interested in an inexperienced old lady with virtually no track record whatsoever (Capitol already had Mrs. Miller.)
No biggie. Her husband was more than happy to make her a star. He set up a couple fake record labels, Reinbeau, Premore, and Cozy. Almost exclusively for recording and releasing his wife's songs.
Commercial radio rarely plays anything from unsolicited, unknown acts in enough rotation to garner any kind of attention. So, Leo simply gave the 45s away (or included mail-order coupons) on or in the packaging of his Solo Cozy Cup products.
