anita bryant 2 – the first 3 columbia lps


storm thorgerson, great designer and writer about design, claims there was no good design in the early 1960s. there is always good design, appropriate to its era and to the product being sold. Columbia records had wonderful covers in 1962. I had to decide between collecting Anita Bryant and collecting Robert Goulet, both of whom were recording schlock vocals for CBS at the same time, both with great designers and both available cheaply. At the same time, Freewheelin’ Dylan and the Clancy Brothers and many other people had great covers on CBS, probably by the same designers, designed for different audiences. I wish I knew who the designers were. Of these covers, Kisses Sweeter than Wine knocks me out, and was my introduction to Anita Bryant recordings. The other two I could live without, design-wise.
