67 Melody Lane Ken Griffin At The Wurlitzer Organ   18 Selections From The Ken Griffin TV Film Series “67 Melody Lane”   Columbia Records, 1950s   “What I find funny about this cover is that the star himself is the small BW figure shown on the TV set, not the guy in the large color pic.   The album itself is (musically) unlistenable.” — lp cover lover, Nicholas West

Canciones de America con Ernesto Hill Olvera   RCA Victor   This is really kind of beautiful.   The orange glow.   The dramatic light on her shoulder, neck and hands.   The yellow wisp of illuminated, exhaled smoke.   His posture and hand poised just like that.   His ring.   His cool shades.
