Shout Sister Shout!

Brita Borg  “Fat Mammy Brown”  Knappup Records  (Sweden)   Right to the LPCL Hall of Frames from LP cover lover Peter in Sweden!  “This is how Sweden was in the year of 1957. Britta Borg was a loved jazz singer with a very deep voice.  I found this 45rpm in a junkstore and paid 50 cents.  I have not seen it before.  Have about 3000 Lp´s many bought just for the cover so my collection is quiet mad.”

Take it off! Take it off!

La Mascara Que Canta!  RCA Mexico    This reminds me of DeNiro as boxer Jake LaMotta in “Raging Bull” – over-the-hill and washed up, reciting poetry at a strip club.
