This subject reminds me of (the possibly) first place name thematic lp release of "The Explosive Freddy Cannon" ( Boston, Kansas City, Tallahassie Lassie, etc. And the absolutely fascinating recordings of "High School USA" by Tommy Facenda with 30 different versions released on 45rpm of the same song with lyric variations reflecting different US high school zones.
