Cover me

MDS00582

Have you ever found old 45’s without their picture sleeves and wondered what the covers could be if YOU were the art director and artist.  I recently found this handful of homemade jackets that some creative soul designed to replace the originals.  I dig the girl covers!  I can imagine our DIY hero listening and dreaming of each song’s romantic heroine, but I’m most intrigued by what the Hollies “On a Carousel” conjured up!

Two cool Decca sleeves from South Africa in the early 60’s.   Paul Evans on one and Carl Dobkins, Jr. b/w Brenda Lee on the other!  I didn’t know Paul Evans, but discovered he recorded Midnight Special (which I knew well as a CCR song).  Brenda’s “Sweet Nuthin'” is a fave.  Check her out Here!
