Here’s another Vacaciones sleeve (see our previous posting below), which is quite timely given the growing tourist trade boycott some Spanish hardliners are stirring up right now. A Casatschok is a Ukrainian traditional dance which was lifted and adapted for one of those summer holiday hits in 1968, itself much covered across Europe. The original French single sleeve (below) had a helpful set of photo instructions on the dance steps, which has been copied for this Spanish holiday hits album. They have helpfully added what passes for a Russian looking hat and boots for the bikini photo shoot! The back cover (at the bottom of the page) reproduces a set of holiday postcard views of Spain.

My thanks to Joe Robinson for the photographs.
