This chapter examines the shift in Joe Davis’s business focus in the 1946. It explains that the rapidly dwindling sales of November and December 1945 continued into 1946, and that Davis made a failed endeavor into the production of music albums. It was in March 1946, after the signing of Jaime Yamin, that Davis discovered the potential of tapping into the growing Spanish market and expanded his business toward Spanish vocal and instrumental music initially aimed at the large audience in New York.

Keywords:   Joe Davis, music albums, Jaime Yamin, Spanish vocal music, Spanish instrumental music, New York
