Bandstanders

IMG_1066

Rock-a-Hits  A compilation of 1950’s pop songs by Cadence Records stablemates The Everly Brothers, The Chordettes, Johnny Tillotson and Link Wray (“Rumble”).  This a one in a series that the label put out with great teen covers (e.g., “Rock-a-Ballads”).   The two on the cover here are Justine Carrelli and Bill Cook “two swinging young Philadelphians … well known all over America as two of the best dancers ever to hit Dick Clark’s famous American Bandstand.”

Footloose and fancy free

IMG_1064

“MUSIC FOR PLAYBOYS”  A nice copulation of jazz tunes like “Sport Car Races”, “Take the A Train”, “Dancing on the Ceiling”, “Latin Heat”, “Day Break” and other suggestive titles for … playboys!  This is from Brazil on the Chaindis Records label.  A little something here for foot fetishists too.  So make a martini, fire up the hi-fi and invite a friend over.
