This obscure Scheherazade is on Seraphim records, but this is not the Seraphim that was the reissue label of EMI/Angel. It wouldn’t be all that noteworthy, except that some obscure rock band took the cover and overprinted it to make this other record. Is the band called “Cherubic Delusion”? Is the album called Please/Thank You? I have no idea. It is a pretty good blues rock record. My guess is that each individual copy of it is printed on a different record cover that they picked up.

What gets me is the amazing number of different recordings of any of the classicals warhorses by each of the biggest companies. RCA had each of their big name conductors record Scheherazade. So did Columbia. So did London, and Angel. Free market economics is a wonderful thing, and in the hayday of classical music on records, the 1950s and 1960s, their must have been a buck to be made by bringing out a new Scheherazade every two years. Many of the rest of these are repackagings of older recordings.

Scheherazade on Musical Heritage Society and similar labels. Plus an overlooked London. MHS4076 is one of my all time favorite Scheherazade covers. The designer is named Allison Potter. The recording is the same, I imagine, as one of the Melodiya ones posted a few weeks ago. I have complained before about cheesecake covers being entirely inappropriate for a piece of music that references serious oppression – honor killing – of women. Here, Potter captures better than any other cover the point of view of the victim, Scheherazade herself.
