Vixens of Vinyl

Vinyl record albums--wow!--they're back. Could it be for the swinging sounds and nightlife nostalgia? Mmmmaybe...but get a load of those covers. Barroom beauties, kittens in Capri pants, seductive sirens--enchantresses everywhere! Vixens of Vinyl: The Alluring Ladies of Vintage Album Covers is a dazzling tour of over a hundred beguiling album covers, designed to appeal to the bachelor audiophiles of the hi-fi era. Such retro luminaries as Martin Denny, Esquivel, Andre Kostelanetz, Perez Prado, and many more draped their record sleeves with women whose charms transcended the strictly musical. Even the decidedly less hip entertainers like Lawrence Welk found they could reach a wolfish new consumer base with a little satin and cleavage. Vixens of Vinyl is a head-turning musical gallery of femmes from a decidedly pre-feminist era. Sure, vinyl is hot again--but the covers are hotter.
