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!
