Eddie Cano and His Sextet - Deep In A Drum LP

Slap those skins!  Whatta gorgeous LP cover - a prime example of why CDs will never come close to the visual glory of the old long-players for cover art.  Musically, this isn't really an exotica type of record - it's a little more 50s jazzy, but the music does have some high points.  So is this shot a composite, or did they actually cut out a photo of a voluptuous gal and glue her onto the drum for this picture?  I dunno, but either way RCA came up with a handsome effect.
