A late career cover illustration from David Stone Martin (1981)  for the Flip Fhillips album “Flipenstein” on Progressive Records  The titles of the eight songs all have something to do with monsters of one sort or another.  Three standards — “Satin Takes a Holiday,” “Witchcraft” and “Ghost of a Chance” — are joined by five tunes written by Phillips; Vampire’s Dream,” “Dracula’s Dance,” “Ghoul of My Dreams,” “Hangman’s Noose” and “The Claw.”
