Nostalgia - David Rose

David Rose And His Orchestra
M-G-M Records E3134

This is an unusual album cover for 1954. In my opinion, graphically ahead of its time.

The first track establishes a soft moody palette of sound. The tracks that follow continue paint a wonderful lush audio landscape. I might compare this work to the many of the Jackie Gleason's LPs I own. It is thematically consistent from cover art to the last track. More of a vision than a collection of songs.


  1. Nice cover. I am a fan of Rose's. Do you have the Stripper? It has a fab cover and turns up in the thrifts quite regularly!

  2. No, I do not. I've never seen one at the thrift here.


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
