There is a blurb about square dancing and a description of formation (with diagram) and general calls, continued on the back inside cover. Rita Myers bought this record at a store in either Kansas City or Lawrence. Records like this were used to practice the dances, and were sometimes purchased directly from the "callers" at a dance. Carson Robinson (1890-1957) was a prominent country music songwriter and musician, originally from Oswego, Kansas.
