  • I wasn’t sure where to post this, but I have a Norgran-related question. I picked up a Norgran “disc jockey copy” (the words on the cover) at a yard sale. The label is black with the trumpet logo and is numbered DJ N-2. Based on the songs included, I’d date the lp between 1954-1956. Has anyone seen one of these before? I can’t find any info anywhere. Thanks.

  • Can’t help re Norgran, sorry.

    Just wanted to comment on David Stone Martin – I wasn’t familiar with the illustrator and was really struck by the Drew cover. Googled him and found this:

    The Coleman Hawkins and Joe Sullivan covers are particularly great.

  • More research has revealed that he illustrated an estimated 400+ album covers! sheesh.
