Another of the “High In-Fidelity” greeting card series of mock record covers. This one comically lists suggested song titles including: “Cocktails for Two”, “There’s a Tavern in the Town”, “Belly up to the Bar Boys”. This was sold for $1 in 1963.

This is one of a series of mock record covers (no lps were included) that came with a black, round greeting card that looked like a record.   I believe there were eleven issued on High In-Fidelity Records.   I think mid-sixties.   They are all funny, I’ll put them up over time!
