Almost certainly the richest professional musician who ever lived was the Swiss conductor Paul Sacher (1906-1999). He was listed as the 3rd richest man in the world in 1996, with a net worth of over $20 billion US. He was the conductor of the Basel Chamber Orchestra. Of course, he didn't make his fortune from music; he made it the old-fashioned way, by marrying into it, in his case marrying the heiress to the Hofmann-LaRoche pharmaceutical fortune, then subsequently taking over the company and turning into an industry powerhouse. Still, he remained active as a professional musician almost to the end of his life.
The assumption is that you are asking about 'Long Playing Records'. Originally disc records were made to revolve at 78 revolutions per minute. They had more limited frequency response than later techniques, but since there hadn't been anything like it before, people were happy with the ability to play music on a record player. Columbia introduced the LP in the summer of 1948. While the records were the same size as 10 inch and 12 inch 78s, they played at 33 1/3 rpm, hence played much longer, up to half an hour on a 12in. side instead of four minutes. In 1949 RCA Victor introduced a seven-inch record playing at 45rpm, hence playing no longer than the 78s. (Later 45s played eight minutes and were called Extended Play, or EP.) Both of the new types were made of unbreakable vinyl rather than shellac.
If you can remember a few words (hopefully in sequence) from the song it would make it easier for me to find it.
