LP Artwork: Out There with Betty Carter

An eye-catching, Sputnik-inspired album cover for the 1958 album, Out There with Betty Carter.

Originally released on Peacock Records, the line up musicians is incredible, including Benny Golson, Wynton Kelly and Sam Jones.

One of my top favourites by Ms Carter.

LP Artwork: Las Vegas Prima Style / Louis Prima, Keely Smith & Sam Butera

Period album cover featuring the then-husband-and-wife team of Louis Prima and Keely Smith.

However, our track from this album is Greenback Dollar Bill sung by New Orleans tenor saxophonist, Sam Butera, who was a regular feature on Prima gigs and many recordings as bandleader of The Witnesses.
