Always fun to find different records with the same or similar covers.  Here are two picture sleeves from different countries by different artists using different shots from the same photo shoot.  The one on the top, Hit Parade on Romance Records is from Holland and the one below is an EP from Italy by Nini Rosso “I Ragazzi Del Jazz “on Sprint Records.  One is pop music, the other Jazz.  One from Italy, the other from the Netherlands.  Guessing they both were released in the late fifties/early sixties.  People are more the same than they are different – no matter where they live.

Splish Splash

s-l1600 copy 3At Weeki Wachee  Sung by Marlin and the Mermaids  ABC Paramount Records  A cool souvenir from Weeki Wachee, Florida.  1950’s Florida kitsch.  Bettie Page on the beach, the Fountainblue hotel, alligator wrestling, drag racing on the beach in Daytona Beach and Weeki Wachee Springs, the Florida tourist attraction where underwater performances by mermaids could be viewed in an aquarium-like setting.  Countless postcards, towels, ashtrays and other promotional items like this single and picture sleeve survive from the attraction’s gift shop.
