Drawn together

“Inside Sauter-Finegan” A common, yet remarkable Jim Flora cover on RCA Records. (1954) This is Sauter-Finegan’s first 12-inch LP. It was packaged with a gatefold cover of a sort peculiar to RCA Victor at the time – the record is removed from an opening at the inside spine of the spread-open cover. There was no danger of a record falling out of one of these covers.   Here you can buy the T-Shirt!
