Moving now into Mercury SR numbers, stereo records. The McCoy is a ringer – not by Maas or anyone else I collect, just a pretty cover. Now that it is blogged, I am getting rid of it. The rest are Maas covers from the 1960s. Not all that beautiful or interesting, just extending my knowledge of Maas. I would like to know who designed the overall Mercury look of the early 1960s the big stripe that says High-Fidelity at the bottom or Stereo at the top. It is a really recognizable graphic, and I once saw a punk rock album that parodied it, just as I have seen parodies of the Blue Note look.
