DM358 with two different covers, one possibly steinweiss


DM358 – Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, Jesus Maria Sanroma at the piano with Arthur Fiedler conducting the Boston Pops, was first issued in 1937, probably with a generic “tombstone” cover. Here are two later issues of the same recording – the earlier one has the front-and-back cover design. For some reason I think this is Peter Arno, the famous New Yorker cartoonist. I don’t know, and would like to hear from you if you do.

Then a few years later the cover was changed again. The later cover looks a lot like Steinweiss. After he was no longer art director at Columbia, Steinweiss designed many covers for Columbia but some for other companies as well. I have a signed Steinweiss 10 inch lp on RCA from around 1950. So this cover could be a Steinweiss. Again, if you know please tell me.
