Martin Denny - Forbidden Island

The Exotic Sounds Of Martin Denny
Forbidden Island
Producer: Si Waronker
Engineers: Bob Land and Ted Keep
Cover Design: Garrett-Howard
Liberty Records LRP 3081 & LST 7001
1958

There were two different cover designs for this Denny release, one for mono (top image) and, apparently, two for the stereo release.

The stereo cover (bottom image) is printed on foil which is an expensive process requiring a extra run through the press first to print a white ink base to support the subsequent four color run.

This Denny set is one of my favorite "exotica" releases.
