The Astromusical House Of Libra

The Look Of Love
The Astromusical House Of Libra
GWP Records - 1007 Astro
1969

Here's another sample from the quirky "Astromusical" series. Also see House of Virgo and House Of Taurus.

The gown the model is wearing is credited to designer Donald Brooks. The "coiffures", by Paul Mitchel for Henri Bendel. I point this out because the models and gowns are branding for the series. I also point this out because it seems odd to credit these folks and NOT the arranger.

Once again the jacket is a gate-fold affair featuring a multi-page insert containing the typical "astrological" copy filler for the sign, Libra.

As you can tell from the sample, the music is a trippy blend of easy and light pop spiced with a touch of "soprano" on some tracks.

  1. Hey, could you please upload all of the "Astromusical" series you have online here? I've been looking for ages for a way to at least listen to these tracks, and so far i haven't been able to. Cheers.
