Record Cover of the Week

Pagan Love

Stanley Wilson: Pagan Love

Classic 1950’s exotica. Television and movie composer Stanley Wilson originally conceived the pieces on this album as the score for The Mating Urge, a 1958 documentary about “primitive” courting rituals in the south seas, Africa and Asia. The front cover reminds me of amateur Sasquatch footage (if the Sasquatch was a naked white woman with a Betty Page haircut). The back cover has some fun line art (click the image below to see it up close and read the informative liner notes).

  1. Awesome Cover. Did you scan that yourself. And if yes, any tips? I have a scanner, but ‘t’aint’ no way I’m gettin’ an album cover completely within my scanner’s glass…
