Earl Bateman, Modern Square Dances with calls by Earl Bateman. Smokey Warren’s Square Dancers. This is a still sealed copy I got from a closed electronics store. I just like the cover.
Top album is 30 Days to Thin Thighs, Hips and Bottom, Spot Aerobics, Upstart, 1983.
Then there is the insert for a Jazzercise record.
The next is actually a cassette version that I don’t have the cassette for. Energize with Exercise! Darrell Sisters Studio Arts Dance Center.
My mom actually did some of these.
The Pocket Book of Esquire Cartoons, Cardinal Books, C-331. 1940s.
The Glorious Pool by Thorne Smith. Pocket Book no. 153,950,919. 1950s.
The “Sleepwalk” Guitars of Dan and Dale, Theme from Thunderball, Diplomat DS 2616, 1965. I like how it makes clear THIS IS NOT A SOUNDTRACK.
The Jazz All-Stars, Thunderball, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. & Other Secret Agent Themes, Design Records, SDLP-206, 1966. The blonde looks like the guy from Man From U.N.C.L.E.
I think these are both unopened, part of the set I bought at the closed out electronics store. Of course if the mood strikes, I’ll open them and listen to them! That’s what records are for! Speaking of records, you should check out The House of Black Wax
, he’s running an alternative list to the Rolling Stone Magazine Greatest 500 Albums that includes lots of great stuff!

The Melachrino Orchestra conducted by George Melachrino, Music for Daydreaming, RCA-Victor LMP 1028, 1954 or 1955.
Frankly, this is an outstanding cover.
The Electric Firebirds, Dance Party Time, Crown CST 618, late 1960s.
