A Gallery of Steinweiss Covers: Postscript

About a year ago, I was posting on this blog a series of album covers by the great illustrator, the late Alex Steinweiss, who passed away last July, aged 94.  Well, four more sets featuring his designs came in the mail just yesterday, courtesy of Larry Woodlee at Vinyl Rehab, and so I post them here.  The first three of these date from 1946, and the last from 1947:
The Schumann cover was slightly disfigured by a sticker and a couple of address stamps of its previous owner, Aquinas College in Nashville, Tennessee; and so, my heartfelt thanks go to Peter Joelson for his work on restoring this image.

I'll be back with some more Ormandy uploads in my next post - stay tuned!
