Bathroom Baritones & Bathing Beauties

Various Artists
“Music for Bathroom Baritones and Bathing Beauties”
American Standard, Plumbing & Heating div.

From the Back Cover:

“Today, the tempo has quickened, the pace has been stepped up. We live in an age of specialization … a specialization that has carried over into the field of music. We have music to dine by, to wine by, to sleep by, to weep by, to fly by and to buy by…. That’s why it’s fitting that American Standard — the world’s best known maker of quality plumbing fixtures — and RCA Victor have united to fill in one gap.”

Music to Break Any Mood

Dick Schory’s New Percussion Ensemble
“Music to Break Any Mood”
RCA LSP-2125

From the Back Cover:

“The fact is, this is an album which can establish or shatter (as you wish) a great gamut of moods — for yourself or an expendable friend. It’s especially good for getting rid of wholesome guests or keeping incorrigibles entertained. And it’s all done with new percussion sounds: some soft and caressing, others big and wild. Instruments include virtually anything which can be stroked, plucked, poked or banged. Some, in the trade, have called this America’s first bang-along record. We earnestly hop it won’t start a movement of proportions similar to the recent sing-along fad.”
