Silhouette Segments compiles radio spots by John Rydgren, the head of the American Lutheran Church . His radio show, “Silhouettes”, was the voice of hippies for God before anyone ever heard the word, “Jesus freak”. His psychedelic Christian Dj patter, in the style of Ken Nordine, is backed by fuzzy guitars and Summer Of Love grooves. A heady mix of peace, love, sex & Jesus.

“Count Your Blessings” Willie Sutherland w Frank Coutts Grampian Records, Scotland. (1972) From LP cover lover Dave Bruce: By way of a little “thank you” for your super site, here’s a scan of my best candidate for a “wake up sweating” record. I rescued it from a charity shop. If you weren’t scared of Scotchmen before this, you should have been.

LP cover lover, Jeff Missinne and Jerold Kress, of the web site The Crown Records Story provided us with this: “Latin Twist” Louis Martinellie and the Continentals Crown Records. Most interesting because the model here is 50’s pin-up queen and TV’s Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, Irish McCalla. Hard to tell from the photo (looks a little like one of the Mary Tyler Moore covers), but below is a behind-the-scenes photo of the Latin Twist cover session courtesy of Sean McIntyre (Irish McCalla’s son).
Jerold Kress ID’d the two guys in the photo; left in suit w/cigarette is Joe Bihari of Crown Records; right in shirtsleeves is Joseph (or Josef) Tauber, photographer. “Photo from the estate of Irish McCalla, and McCalla Enterprises, Inc.” (McCalla Enterprises, incidentally, was a company Irish and her sister started in the 70’s to merchandise prints and ceramic plates of Irish’s work as a painter and illustrator. Her talent was as impressive as her beauty, and friends who met her said she was also one of the nicest folks around.) Thanks Jeff, Jerold and Sean!
