Latin (with an Irish) Twist

latintwist

LP cover lover, Jeff Missinne and Jerold Kress, of the web site The Crown Records Story  provided us with this:  “Latin Twist”  Louis Martinellie and the Continentals  Crown Records.  Most interesting because the model here is 50’s pin-up queen and TV’s Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, Irish McCalla.  Hard to tell from the photo (looks a little like one of the Mary Tyler Moore covers), but below is a  behind-the-scenes photo of the Latin Twist cover session courtesy of Sean McIntyre (Irish McCalla’s son).

Jerold Kress ID’d the two guys in the photo; left in suit w/cigarette is Joe Bihari of Crown Records; right in shirtsleeves is Joseph (or Josef) Tauber, photographer.  “Photo from the estate of Irish McCalla, and McCalla Enterprises, Inc.” (McCalla Enterprises, incidentally, was a company Irish and her sister started in the 70’s to merchandise prints and ceramic plates of Irish’s work as a painter and illustrator.  Her talent was as impressive as her beauty, and friends who met her said she was also one of the nicest folks around.)  Thanks Jeff, Jerold and Sean!
