Omega pressed a good number of Bay sessions and produced jackets that featured creative art. This cover features one of the more fantastic structures built for the 1958 Brussels World's Fair

From the back cover: Francis Bay plays trombone, clarinet, alto saxophone and flute with equal ability and his regular programs on the Brussels N.I.R. Radio conceived by program manager Bob Boon can be heard weekly on the powerful station throughout England, France, Belgium and surrounding countries.
