She Dotes On Dreamy Music - Harry Hermann

She Dotes On Dreamy Music
Harry Hermann And His Orchestra
Decca Records DL 8310

From the back cover: The Petty Girl as featured in Esquire / In his portraits of enticing young ladies for Esquire Magazine, Artist George Petty has performed a truly epochal marriage of the physics of the curved line and intangibles of glamor.

Also from the back cover: It is with great pleasure that we introduce The Girl Friend to this album marking Harry Hermann's debut on Decca Records. Viennese-born, Hermann's intensive classical background is pointed up by the fact that at seventeen, he was playing with the Vienna Philharmonic under the direction of Richard Strauss.

From Billboard - November 17, 1956: Here's a perfect holiday gift package series for men who appreciate pin-up type calendar art. Altho the titles in the series are equally divided between music for "The Girl Friend" and "The Boy Friend" and "The Boy Friend," the covers – feature curvaceous Petty Girl drawings – are strictly for the boys, particularly those who were in their salad days when Petty works of art where in theirs.
