From the Back Cover:

In this album, you will hear him play the organ and piano simultaneously…and through the magic of over-dubbing…you will hear him playing many other instruments creating the sound of a full orchestra.

My sleeves. Look at them.

Jack Costanzo & his Latin Orchestra
“Mr. Bongo Plays in Hi-Fi”
Tops #1564

JC Biography

From the Back Cover:

From Havana to Hollywood, the bongo beat is sweeping the continent. Bongo parties are developing into a revered Institution as thousands of unrelenting tyros nurse sore fingers and aching wrists trying to make the skins speak Cubano.

His organ is in the mood

Eddie Layton
“Organ Moods in Hi-Fi”
Mercury #MG20208

“Great Organ Hits”
Mercury #SR60639

From the Back Cover:

“MERCURY believes that this long playing album presenting the creative genius of Eddie Layton shows just how limitless the realm of sound can be when left in the hands of an artist who has full command of his instrument.”

Okay, TWO hugely phallic album covers by one guy? What’s going on?

Mr. Layton was the organist for the New York Yankees baseball team until his retirement in 2003.

Knees Up!

Mrs. Mills
“Knees-Up Party”
Music for Pleasure #50230
1975
photography: Colin Glanfield
design: David Wharin

From the Back Cover:

A party isn’t any sort of a party without our Glad. Half a minute of her gusty lusty piano playing and you’re a goner… a compulsive joiner… toes tapping, fingers snapping… away on a breezy bouncy journey that gets you singing every step of the way simply because of the come-on-and-be-with-us atmosphere she creates whenever she’s around.

–Carol Spero
