Here’s a cool one on the Roulette label from Japan! “To Play-Boys” or as it says in English on the back cover “Music for Playboys.” There are many records from the 50’s, 60’s and even the 1970’s with that same inviting title. This one is vintage mid-sixties and a new find for me. The cover model is Italian actress Lisa Gastoni. Wikipedia says: “The turning point in her film career was her role in Grazie, zia by Salvatore Samperi. (Ed., note: This may be a shot from that film. Maybe some sleuth out there can tell me). This would set the tone for the roles she would play for the next decade; bourgeois women who were seductive yet sexually frustrated, cruel and arrogant yet sad and sympathetic, manipulating the people around them to try and fill the emptiness in their own lives. The music on this is by Sam Marowitz and Sonny Lester, I’m told, (I can’t read the liner notes), but the titles in English suggest, typical bachelor pad glory — “Moon Nocturne,” “Chivas Regal,” “Sounds in the Night” and “A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody”.
