Friends of Vinyl Connection will know of the interest we have in the Australian World Record Club for its marvellous album cover designs of the sixties and early seventies.
I want to share with you one of my favourites, acquired recently from Mrs Helen Cameron of Keilor Park (via my local Op Shop). Picking up this 1961 LP made me unreasonably (but seasonally) happy. The combination of Christmas iconography and Aussie images is delightful. Hope you like it too.
Many thanks, Mrs Cameron.
When it comes to music, however, the all-time favourite around the Vinyl Connection Homestead is Don Burrows genial jazz LP from 1978. It featured in a post from a couple of Christmases ago, wherein the circumstances around my employment as a Father Christmas were revealed. Don, accompanied by George Golla and other notable Australian jazz musos, explores some classic seasonal songs with swinging aplomb. A very accessible and fun album.
Whatever your setting, social connections, spiritual schemes and sipping preferences, have a great day.
