Bob Thompson - On The Rocks
Mr. Thompson claims to have used an all star west coast cool jazz crew for the lp. There are no credits but I don't doubt for a minute that he is correct A little bit of investigation should confirm that. Unfortunately I lost my PI badge in a scuffle with a prog rocker and I have no assistant to back me up.
This is one of the more sought after bachelor pad lps and with a cover like that, why wouldn't it be?
Even better is that it is a recent gift from a friend whose new girlfriend "doesn't appreciate those type covers."
So stir yourself a martini, light a log, and groove on some tunes your parents (or grandparents!) thought were cool on the new hi-fi in the living room.
