Melody Four

Travel On
The Melody Four
Word Record,Waco TX W3015-LP 1958
Recorded September, 1957. RCA Studios - Chicago.

I bought this album because of the great cover art. I did not photoshop this image. The colors are true. They are very muted and subdued. It looks more like a vintage jazz cover, rather than gospel. The art director probably caught hell because you can not read the yellow type treatment.

The first track on the A side, however is my favorite. Is this a soundtrack from a cowboy movie? No wait... where'd that jazz guitar riff come from?!!
