From Billboard - April 20, 1959: Victor Aid To Gourmet Digestion - RCA Victor has released five new disks in monaural and stereo versions to aid the home gourmet in the atmosphere department. A German, Chinese, French and Italian dinner, and an American barbecue are the themes around which various orks have woven background music. Arrangements of old favorites like "Blue Danube," "Chinatown, My Chinatown," "The Last Time I Saw Paris," and "Arrivederci, Roma," are played in a smooth style, that will please the ear as well as aid the digestion.

Each album has a gaily caparisoned couple of representative nationality hovering over a groaning board. The photography is mouthwatering. I place of liners, the back of each jacket has authentic, easy-to-follow recipes for a complete meal.
