Technically there were at least three other "break-in" records out
after "The Flying Saucer" but before the "Marty" record---but none of
these use the real records.
They were Sid Noel's straight cover of the Buchanan & Goodman record,
on Aladdin,Alan Freed's "The Space Man" on Coral and Dave Barry & Sara
Berner's "Out Of This World With Flying Saucers" on RPM.All used legit
song snippets but none by the original artists.
And all three of them stink
So yes I believe that "Marty On Planet Mars" WAS the first break-in
record after "The Flying Saucer" to use snippets of the REAL records.
Novelty Records even took out an ad in Billboard to promote the record
adding the solemn warning
"5,000 Dollars reward for arrest and conviction of anyone bootlegging
