“I’ve Got It”  The Singing Parkers  Gospel Key Records (Bakersfield)   I love the dramatic lighting on the sisters’ cascading curls, their intense gazes, their shiny dresses, their heads held high in the brilliant glow of a divine presence.

Another great “hair piece” find from LP Cover Lover founder and master vinyl archeologist Tony Valenti.
