Midnight Jayne

Here’s another rare Jayne Mansfield cover from Japan.  “Smashing Hit Parade”  Various Artists  Union Records  Jayne Mansfield is the most collectable record cover model.  Even if Bettie Page is the quintessential pin-up queen, she only has three covers and while Bridgette Bardot has many more (she actually sings on some of them), the Jayne Mansfield covers from the US, Japan, South America, etc. are all great.  This is one I just found, helping to fill out my still growing collection.  (Search for Jayne to see some others!)

A beautiful cover from Brazil on Polydor Records.  Captures a fifties jitterbug thing but with a raw Latin American vibe.  “Dancando na Gafieira”  By Santana & Seu Regional Moderno
