Wat een meisje weten moet - Louis Davids

During the early 1930s flexible records where a cheap and inbreakable solution for the breakable shellac record. The flexible records were also printable, so an excellent object to use for advertisement. In the Netherlands, Persil, the washing-powder (soap) company, made such an advertisment record that became on of the most beautiful picture discs. The advertisement was hidden in a tune "What a girl needs to know" sung by Louis Davids, the great Dutch vaudeville artist of the 1930s.
