Harpist Holiday - Robert Maxwell

Night and Day
Harpist Holiday
Robert Maxwell
Harmony HL 7007
1957 (Original release 1947)

Robert Maxwell used the harp more as a percussion instrument, an innovative approach. This Maxwell LP, like the cover art, is soft and mood setting. Innovative for the 1947 pop easy listening market.

  2. That is, in fact, my mother on the cover of this album. She was a model many years ago in New York, and showed me a proof of the album cover earlier this evening. Nice to see you had it here!
