Goombay - Alice Simms
Waldorf Music Hall
FDR MHK 33-1217

The album cover features a KLM Royal Dutch Airlines logo in the lower right hand corner. There must have been some marketing association with KLM. The music on the LP found inside of the "folk" looking jacket seems white bread to me as if the airline was promising an "authentic" visual experience, but didn't want to weigh down prospective clients with more traditional folk music. I don't think the Dudes on the cover are gonna be cranking out this version Goombay! The guy with the donkey seems to have wandered into the picture by accident.

  1. HA! What looks like Exotica from the Source is most definitely NOT! Fabulous, though! A woman is singing and there is no woman on the cover either.


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
