– Violinaires: Checker 10040

I’ve added scans and details for Checker LP 10040 by the Violinaires. Another one with artwork by Judith Friedman (like LP 10039 by the Willing Four, added earlier today) and not a big success either. Don Bronstein, responsible for the artwork of many legendary Chess and Checker albums, became less involved, so it seems, and that’s a shame. Apart from that, this is a pretty good and well-produced (Ralph Bass) album by the Violinaires, reflecting pop and soul influences and the love & peace attitude of the day (“Spreading Brotherhood”).
