Hep cats and kittens, finger-poppin' daddios, hipsters and flipsters, etc.....

Cast your eyes on these examples of LP cover art created by David Stone Martin, from the 1950s....

I posted a pic on FaceAche of one of the LPs that's just come into my grubby paws (the fifteenth one down, "Bird and Diz"), and a friend hipped me to the work of this great pencil squeezer geezer.

Never mind all that other intellectualarianism - roll yourself a jazz woodbine and gaze away at these beauts.

Oh, oh, oh... Such beauty.

From the days when smoking wasn't bad for you (or expensive)
When CD meant condensed milk
When leisure wear didn't exist and people didn't wear their hats on backwards
When people learned to play musical instruments properly
When clothes were made to last and to fit properly

Cheers, Norm

(yes, I know, from the days when homosexuality was illegal and the poor had even less than they do now...)

And the wearing of suede shoes (unless you were a jazz fan, or member of the aristocracy) was seen as an indicator of sexual orientation.
