Life is good

Al Compas De Mis Recuerdos. Why are there always records laying around on the floor?   Check out the groovy portable turntable with the removable speakers. Check out the babe. Check out the dude with the blue stocking socks, the tall cocktail, the cigarette and the far away look of a guy enjoying his groovy portable turntable, his hot babe, his cocktail, cigarette, tight fitting, powder blue stocking socks and albums spread on the floor around his feet. Ahhhh, life IS good.

“From Another World”

img_0255.JPG

“From Another World” by Sid Bass on RCA.   A space-age bachelor pad staple; this one pressed in Argentina I think.       Promising strange, other-worldly sounds and far-out music, the tracks here are mostly dull big band arrangements that begin and end with some “spacey,” electronic tones.   I like the colorful sound waves on top of the black and white photo.

Perchance to

“Dream” with the Elliot Lawrence Orchestra.   Aptly on the Fantasy Records label. The typography, the lighting, her figure and the spareness of the room all add up to a kind of simple elegance on this cover.

Hungry like the wolf

“One Night of Love…!” Daniel De Carlo Decca Records.   Here’s the image of the classic American bachelor, the cad, the swinging hipster, the wolf on the prowl.   All the signs of trouble were there when she arrived.
