More Caedmon Records

Our friend Vince Chong has been staying for a few days, flying in from Canada for a much needed break, to catch a couple of rock concerts and check out of few record shops while he was here. He managed to get through UK customs with a box full of albums on the Caedmon label to aid me in my research into their pioneering album sleeves! In return we were able to get him to the excellent Vanishing Point and Tallbird Records shops in Chesterfield, although when I put three hours on the parking meter for this I thought I had erred on the safe side; not a bit of it! So he went off with the same bag stuffed with industrial rarities.
Anyhow, I’ve been adding his welcome contributions to the ST33 collection and this has spurred me to do a gallery of one of the label’s most accomplished designers, Matthew Leibowitz. The cover below looks like something from the swinging Sixties, but is a decade older. Read more on the site.

Matthew Leibowitz, Boswell's London Journal (TC 1093, 1959, Caedmon)
