Introduction To Stereo

Introduction To Stereo
Westminster WSS-1

Needless to say, this album is no "introduction to graphic design". Why Westminster, having published many fine album covers spent no money on this design, is a mystery to me.

The contents, for the most part, also seem "budget" or "dashed" together. The stereo engineering sounds weak to my ears. However, Ralph Font's cover of Tabu (or Taboo) is worth posting as a sample to compare with any mono versions that may floating around out there.

I thought I had the Font's LP that this track was lifted from, but I can't find the copy. Instead, check out this super fun Font project: Longhair Goes Cha-Cha
