Do-It-Yourself - Peter Barclay

From Billboard - October 15, 1955: There rarely comes a series that invites display as does this one. The covers are full color photos of a type right out of "Better Homes And Gardens," each dealing with a form of modern home entertainment and avocation. On the back of each jacket is useful, easy to follow information – recipes for snacks, drinks, patio planting, dance music suggestions and remodeling hints. The music itself is standard background music, the usual "mood" or "dinner" music, consisting of standards, and very well recorded. The packaging is bound to call attention to the entire series, and the music, while interchangeable, is perfectly suitable for background for all of the above functions.
