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.
