LP Artwork: Storyville Presents Miss Teddi King / Frank Sinatra Sings for Only the Lonely / A Ghost In Every Bar (Ian Shaw Sings the Lyrics of Fran Landesman)
Our eclectic mix of songs this week comes from interesting albums with stylish and vintage artwork. Here are three examples: the debut LP by the rather long-forgotten jazz/pop singer, Teddi King; Frank Sinatra's superb 1958 release which deserved more than one Grammy - which it received, for the artwork! - and, hailing from Wales, the highly-talented Ian Shaw and his homage to the lyricist, Fran Landesman.
