If you have to Basque

A nice one from LP cover lover Vitore who writes, “It is from a spanish-basque group called: Los Xey that had a lot of success back in the 50’s and 60’s. They were ‘a capella’ singers and used to sing popular songs from the Basque Country”

Small wonder

A French picture sleeve for an early “Little” Stevie Wonder single.   It’s fun to see the great photographs that only made their way onto foreign covers.   This is Motown, of course, released in France by Barclay.   Circa 1966.
