Ex-squeeze me!?

Thanks to LP cover lover, Rob Keith, who we met at the WFMU Record Fair.  A collector of music from the North of Brazil, Rob sent us this nice one with this note:  Zezinho is a forró accordion player from the northeast of Brazil. His group was called “The Rat Pack of Forró.” Song titles include “Sweaty Women” and “Beautiful Balloons.” Forró is well known for double entendre wordplay, so the songs are probably what you would assume they are about… or not, depending on which way you decide to interpret them. The album is surprisingly good and well produced, recorded on 16 tracks in Rio.

The Dave Brubeck Quartet: Paul Desmond (alto saxophone) Dave Brubeck (piano) Ron Crotty (bass) Lloyd Davis (drums)   “The Trolley Song”  Fantasy Records (on Red Vinyl)  (1955)    What a fun, funny cover from photographer Bill Claxton.   I’m a big Paul Desmond fan.   (Not sure I need to see him shirtless though).  Read the liner notes  and listen here to the rehearsal takes of title track:

Osaka to me!

Interesting front and back cover from Japan.   Almost all of these Japanese nude and cheesecake  covers feature  models that are Caucasian and this one is Japanese.  Go figure.  And what a figure!
