Album cover of the week: The Birth of Bebop and Blues

While digging up information for yesterday’s edition of Sunday Jazz, I came across this old jazz compilation from Remington Records called The Birth of Bebop and Blues (RLP 1031).

The Birth of Bebop and Blues

This 10″ LP contains seven songs, many of which feature legendary saxophonist Charlie “Bird” Parker playing with Clyde Hart’s All Stars. They were originally recorded for the Continental Records label, and later transferred in various combinations to Remington in the early ’50s.

I don’t have any info on the graphic design or illustration, but I can say that I’ve seen quite a few Continental/Remington covers and they are very cool indeed.
