Wrap Attack

A fake cardboard record inside this cool cover from “Air Express” Records.  A promotional item from Air Express (a precurser to FedX?).  Includes sales puns like “An unbroken record for fastest way shipping since 1927” and “In tune with the kind of delivery consignees expect” and “Harmonizing speed in the air with speed on the ground”  You get the idea.  But I really dig the cover!  As a frequent shipper of records myself, I could use some soothing music.
