What's Wrong With This Picture?
Nothing a clean mind and heart can't cure. Actually it's an album cover for a 1950s David Oistrach violin recital album on Parliament records (PLP 118) that includes Prokofiev's "Love For Three Oranges." I think the cover art designer took the theme to an extreme. Or perhaps when he designed it he was thinking of his main squeeze?
I found it on display at John Tefteller's booth. The noted 78rpm record collector/dealer brought only vinyl and polystyrene record to sell. Polystyrene was the preferred pressing medium for American Decca in the early days and Tefteller had boxes of those bought from a long-retired Decca engineer. There were hundreds of early mono Deccas, none of which I'd ever before seen.
That's one of the great things about records. You can own tens of thousands and still see entire collections containing not a single one found in yours. There are so many!
