I find Philips Duos artwork less than inspiring:



....but the price is right for two discs and they do have a number of them that I greatly enjoy.
There will never be another era like the Golden Age of Hollywood.  We didn't know how to blow up buildings then so we had no choice but to tell great stories with great characters.-Ben Mankiewicz

For me, it all comes down to the first recording in Bridg'es Elliott Carter series, which looks like the cover of Issue No. 1 of Elliott Carter Comics:



This photo really doesn't capture the wide-eyed, pothead look on Mr. Carter's face. Pity. It's a great recording.

And as far as I'm concerned, any picture of Helene Grimaud is a blessing.

The edges of potential captions swirl around the mind:

For some reason I really dislike the 'Grammophone Awards Collection'....does anyone know where one can buy the Chailly recording of Varese's complete works without the Grammophone awards on it?

It's still shown at JPC with the old cover:

Brilliant. Only when I accessed the 'Fashion Victims' did I know that I had come across his work previously.

Who said the Germans did not have a sense of humour? Made my day.

Thank you ;D
