Maria Elena - The 50 Guitars Of Tommy Garrett

Maria Elena
The 50 Guitars Of Tommy Garrett
Arranger: Ernie Freeman
Producer: Tommy "Snuff" Garrett
Engineer: Eddie Brackets
Cover Design: Studio Five
Liberty LSS-14030
1963

Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here to share the cover art.

Terrific set featuring rich sounding covers of "exotica" standards including Jungle Drums, Taboo, Brazil and The Breeze And I.

The "Premier" line of records offered "upscale" production to include expensive to produce book-fold examples, such as this one, that featured die-cut artwork. The quality of the vinyl was also premium.
