Woody Herman “Songs for Hip Lovers” RCA (UK) Check out the US release and see how the English recreated one of the great bachelor pad covers for their own version. Can you spot the differences?
I loved this song as a kid in 1967. John Fred and His Playboys “Judy in Disguise (with Glasses)” This puke-green psycho-billy, titty shaker sleeve from Denmark is misleading as the song is a kind of bubblegum knock-off of “Lucy in the Skies with Diamonds”. The California Records label also a bit odd!

We’re looking for a series of French LP compilations of classic Atlantic soul acts doing rock and pop covers. Like Wilson Pickett doing Love is a Beautiful Thing, and a soul/horns version of Sunshine of Your Love, that kind of stuff. The covers were illustrated, no photographs. Can any of our French “cover lovers” help us find any of these? Perhaps even send a photo? Thanks for any info!
We love this! To celebrate the television series Homeland and its season 2 finale on December 16th, Californian designer Ty Mattson of Mattson Creative created an excellent series of 12 Homeland inspired vintage jazz record covers. “Last night was the finale of the second season of Homeland. To say that I am a huge fan would be an understatement! As a personal project, I set out to create a series of designs to celebrate the award-winning show. Playing off of the subtle theme of jazz that appears the storyline, I designed 12 vintage record covers inspired by the TV series.”
