Steinweiss in the late 1960s

These are six Steinweiss designs on Decca in DL10000 numbers. They seem quite a bit later than the previous posts. The backs read Decca, a division of MCA, Inc. According to
this should date them to 1966 or later. These are clearly Steinweiss, and show a real comeback to me. I find these late 1960s Decca records to be wonderfully inventive covers, not as beautiful as the golden age 1940s sets, but still great stuff.

    Decca actually merged with MCA already in 1962, not 1966. And all six of these covers are prior to 1966:

    DL 710062 – January 1963
    DL 10064 – May 1963
    DL 10069 – July 1963
    DL 710084 – May 1964
    DL 710091 – May 1964
    DL 710101 – January 1965 (initially in mono only as DL 10101; this fake stereo issue appeared in February 1969).

    By 1966 they were already at DL (7)10118.
