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”).
