“Music for Morticians” “Les Pallbearer and His All-Ghoul Orchestra” This has to be one of my rarest records. I believe it was made as a goof by guys working in the design department at Capitol records Who knows how many were made.   It’s dated on the label 1951.   I’m assuming it’s them in the cover photo. I wonder who they got to be the corpse?! I’d love to hear from anyone who might know anything about it, though I imagine that’s unlikely. Still, a great cover and right in the spirit of our obsession.
