Eddie Heywood, Breezin’ Along With The Breeze. Mercury SR 60115. 1959.
This is one very interesting cover. The colors, the font choices, the photo. But what’s with the red and blue hands? I realize they’re playing a simulated piano, but why the colors? And of course Mercury Records would use a 1959 Mercury Monterey convertible to reinforce the brand.
The music on this record is OK, but it’s not really my style. I’m willing to part with it even though I love the cover. I have so many records that they’re in the living room and two closets. And I keep picking up more at garage sales. Hey, for 25 cents you can’t beat the price, though my wife threatens to beat on me. Just kidding honey! Really she’s great and very patient with my collecting.
