Young and restless

IMG_2126

The Japanese made beautiful record covers in the fifties and sixties.  Japan reproduced American art, music and culture with care, affection, and detail.  These Japanese pressings looked and sounded great.  Here’s a Japanese Decca release with a vibrant cover shot of James Dean.  James Dean only made three movies, but his image graced many records around the world.  Like this one often the music was just a compilation of Hollywood movie music.   This one, “The Glory of Victor Young”, starts off with the theme from “East of Eden,” but (thanks to LP cover lover, Roy, this shot is from his first film “Rebel Without a Cause”).
