The Original Animal House

The Mayfair ALL-STAR Orchestra
“Frat House Party”
Golden Tone #C 4020

MAILBAG:

Hi, I’m Guga from Sardinia, Italy. I came up in your site and it’s really great, I had a really great time. But I have a question. Is it just an impression of mine, or the people and the place in “Mayfair ALL-STAR Orchestra – Frat House Party” cover and “various – 12 top hits” are the same?!?

There is the same grey wall, the same green sofa and the same yellow/orange chair and the same plant behind the sofa. The dancing girl in 12 Top Hits is sitting on the yellow chair (notice the socks! :P) in Frat House Party, and her “mate” near her. The dancing girl in Frat House Party is (notice socks and shirt) on the sofa in 12 Top Hits near the dancing guy. And there’s another couple who probably doesn’t like dancing in both covers.

Is there a reason for that? Or is it just that publishers didn’t have a great sense for beauty?

– Guga


BR: Good eye, Guga. Many of these cheapo-o Tops/Mayfair records seem to have the covers shot on what I assume is the company loading dock. You’ll even see the same cover pic on two different records!

Real surfers don’t wear that much clothing.

The Centurions
“Surfers’ Pajama Party”
Del-Fi #1228
(John Spath collection)
MAILBAG:

“When Del-Fi Records released the one and only album by The Centurions, they mistakenly gave it the exact same cover and catalog number as the [Bruce Johnston] Surfers’ Pajama Party that is shown on your site… Needless to say, it was nearly impossible for anyone to order the Centurions album and they soon met the fate of so many other West Coast surf-rock bands (that is, until the overrated Quentin Tarantino and the underrated John Waters pulled tracks from the album for the films Pulp Fiction and Pink Flamingos, respectively.)”
–”Trash Toaster”

Although I first had this listed as the Bruce Johnston version, its actually the Centurions version! –BR
