Also, Reo had Fats only for a short time..London was distributing 
Imperial by 1957.

          Quality and Reo were issuing 78s into 1959 but I don't think 
past that, and odds are they were dubbing from the 45 rather than a tape 
by that time.

   How late was Quality Records pressing 78rpm rock & roll records from 
   masters? And, further, when did Reo - a subsidiary of Quality - cease
   pressing 78s? I'm searching for the elusive "Shu-Rah" by Fats Domino
   which was released as a 45 in the US on Imperial 5734, c. 1961. I'm
   hoping that there may have been a Canadian pressing on 78, but am
   doubtful since the mother and/or master stamper was probably a 45. Of
   course if the stamper depended from tape all bets are off!
   Discogs shows virtually nothing about this one.
