How about a spin?

spinme

The Wheel of Fortune turns up unexpected pleasures from the LPCoverLover archives of more than 4,000 records and has been known to be habit-forming.  You never know what it might bring up.  It’s like flipping through a mystery box of records at a house sale.  A box filled with treats and treasures and rarities in no particular order at all.  So click and spin and dig on while the spirit moves you.  Bet you can’t just do it once!  C’mon take a chance — Andrea dares you.

Garage greats Vol. 12

BRYAN SMITH - BACK IN YOUR OWN BACK YARD

LpCoverLover, Steve Hartnett writes:  I have been enjoying your posts for a long time now.  Here’s one for you. The piano’s happy but the night club looks a bit run down. Bryan and his happy piano have done quite a few albums, but this is my favorite cover.

Relaxing and thankful on Thanksgiving

“Music for Relaxing (Vol. 1)”  Enoch Light Orchestra  Belter Records (Spain)   A sweet take on the Woody Herman album cover of the same title that we’ve posted in the past.  There’s something about girl lounging on pillows with records on the floor.  A theme that we see repeatedly on covers from around the world.  A nice cheesecake illustration on this one (Signed by VALTZ)
