LP Artwork: The Astaire Story (Vol 4) and The Wham of Sam
Here's a couple of album covers from a brace of tracks from this week's show - So Near and Yet So Far, and Begin the Beguine. They're by two artists who were both highly successful singers and dancers: Fred Astaire and Sammy Davis Jr.
It does surprise me that The Wham of Sam doesn't warrant an exclamation mark! (Well, perhaps they're just overused these days...)
