I saw Jalousie not too long ago, but didn't get it because it wasn't in good shape, I think. Or...do I already have it? Uh...
Nice Riviera. That's the sort of car I wouldn't have thought much of growing up, but like now, especially when tastefully modified. They can look amazing!

This was a surprise. There can't be too many of these, right? Maybe a handful of different ones?
Louis Van Dyke is a Dutch pianist and organist. At his website, this album isn't even listed in his Discography section. B'oh! That's pretty common, I've found. They like to focus on things they've recorded in the last 10-20 years, especially if something old is out of print.
If I ever become a famous musician. you have my word that I'll list all my albums!
Here's his cover of "For No One", which sounds very grandiose! :)

Seriously, that's a curtain, right? I mean, she even used the tassle tie-back thingy as a bracelet! :p Well, she makes it look good, at least.
Some airbrushing/proto-Photoshopping going on with her eyes, I see.

You know how you should usually paint a flattering portrait for an album cover?
Jack Hosier didn't get the message. ;)
There he is. I think Jack got the general caricature down, but man, he made it look like Ricky has a crazy lazy eye! :p Hey, I wonder if Trudeau ever heard his reel! Maybe his son has.
I knew a kid who was quite good at fiddling, but gave it up when he got older. Knowing how he is now, I don't see him ever getting into it again either, which is kinda sad.

I believe that is Dorothy's home, that's what. Why shouldn't I? What's the matter with you?! :p
Another shot of the glamorous lady, looking very much at home in her alleged home.
No mention of her teaching at home, but I can picture that. She looks like a stern taskmaster. I mean patient, kind teacher!
I see they used a Leslie speaker system. Some of those were awesome, especially the ones that rotated inside! I'd really love to hear one someday.

Nope, it's the outstanding sax artistry of Plas Johnson! Interesting imagery. I bet she never even met him. :p He missed her unique way of keeping doors closed.
I really like this endorsement on the back. It would make a great poster, or even just a straight ad (perhaps in poster form plastered around town) for the album.
Here's a video featuring his playing. I bet you've heard it and didn't know it was him!

So nice! Love the use of color and multiple mediums. Oh, and the Mae West dove is a nice touch. :p
Simple back, but nice color. I wonder what channels albums like this were available through.
