We ran across these CDs and thought they’d be an interesting share. The covers are sloppily Photoshopped, but we certainly can’t fault the choice of models. Some are semi-famous actresses, such as Dani Crayne, above, and Claire Gordon, just below, while others are pin-ups. Most of the photos were borrowed from the British cinema magazine Picturegoer, which was published from 1921 to 1960. We haven’t featured that magazine yet, but we’ve a mind to buy a few because they’re widely available online. As far as the music here goes, each CD is a compilation of twenty-five or thirty 1950s pop songs, but we haven’t heard them, so we can’t comment on the quality. Sloppy cover work often hints at hastily compiled music, and perhaps substandard sonic quality, but you never know. Anyway, we have fifteen scans total, with Julie Glenville, Sheree Winton, Barbara Joyce and more.
