“Music for Relaxing (Vol. 1)”  Enoch Light Orchestra  Belter Records (Spain)   A sweet take on the Woody Herman album cover of the same title that we’ve posted in the past.  There’s something about girl lounging on pillows with records on the floor.  A theme that we see repeatedly on covers from around the world.  A nice cheesecake illustration on this one (Signed by VALTZ)

Juke-box Party No. 1  Philips Records (France)  This looks like a beautiful machine.  I know that here are those out there that can name the machine.  Anyone care to enlighten the rest of us.  Owning one is on my bucket list.  Better get going.

The Chet Baker Sextet  Music Records (Italy)  A Pacific Jazz Session from 1954 featuring Chet Baker (trumpet), Bob Brookmeyer (valve trombone), Bud Shank (baritone saxophone), Russ Freeman (piano), Carson Smith (bass), Shelly Manne (drums).  Stella by Starlight, I’m Glad There is You, Tommyhawk and Dot’s Groovy.   I’m a fan of this EP cover design by Gian G. Greguoli.    Nicely captures the reflective, romantic mood of the music.
