Weekly Wrap Up

CLP 5456

Day 32.  A Sunday offering of cross-on-moonscape cover design with dreadful sounding Christian music inside; not really gospel, more like bad crooning. No info available on George Johnson or Robert Evans Chorus who appear on this 1964 LP.


CST 564

Day 31 & Crown goes for the bait & switch hit song trick: take one hit song like Born Free  and combined it with unrelated cuts from various other Crown LPs. Is George Mann really Maxwell Davis?
