Girls! Girls! Girls!

It’s for sure the most used theme on record sleeves throughout the ages. Take a girl as a model and let her sell the album for you. Thousands of girls earned some dimes by posing for a photographer who shoot some crazy chicks for a record company. Some became well known like Sandy Warner; The Exotica Girl, Ann Pickford, the woman who sold Philips Favourites Series or Jayne Mansfield, an actress, but also a much asked model in the 1950’s. From about 1955 to 1961 really were the hottest days for pin-up girls on album covers. Many companies used them in various poses. Sexy, dreamy, naughty or cheesy… all girls were happy to play the star for the photographer. Cheesecake albums became a household name in the land of phonograph records. When you miss some, don’t worry. Other categories on my site have them probably.
