My Sheree

Sheree North digs LPs too.  Sheree, (January 17, 1932 – November 4, 2005), was an American actress, singer, and dancer. She was known for being 20th Century Fox’s answer to Marilyn Monroe from 1954 to 1956. They had their publicity machine cranked up when she landed on the cover of LIFE:

Face oddity

David Bowie  “Pinups”  RCA Records (1973)  Released between “Aladin Sane” and “Diamond Dogs.”  The woman on the cover with Bowie is 1960s supermodel Twiggy in a photograph taken by her then-manager Justin de Villeneuve.  In the album booklet, Bowie himself describes Pin Ups as: 

“These songs are among my favourites from the ’64–67′ period of London. / Most of the groups were playing the Ricky-Tick (was it a ‘y’ or an ‘i’?) -Scene club circuit (Marquee, eel pie island la-la). / Some are still with us. /Pretty Things, Them, Yardbirds, Syd’s Pink Floyd, Mojos, Who, Easybeats, Merseys,  The Kinks

Web masters

“Top Hits’  The Spiders  (Jubilee Records Trading Co. of Singapore)  I have not been able to find any information about The Spiders.  Of course, these are not The Spiders from Japan (or from New Orleans). And, as far as I know, this is the only record that they released.
