Geval Trio / Las Cuatro Plumas “PSICOSIS” Philips Records (Spain)  Released in 1962.  Hitchcock’s “Pyscho” came out in 1960.  This is a kinda creepy, kinda silly accordion/organ (?) number.  This one’s all about the cover!

Two on a favorite children’s record label – Robin Hood!  One from the “Famous Children’s Stories” series and one from the “Children’s Playtime Songs” series.   Each is kind of trippy in that children’s fairy tale way.
