Dwight Fiske & Nan Blakstone: Tongue With Cheek

Jazz-age cabaret artists Dwight Fiske and Nan Blakstone meet in this split LP on the Jubilee label from 1959. If you don’t agree this is one of the best LP covers ever printed, I can’t help you. (And yes, Jubilee has misspelled Nan’s last name everywhere in this album’s artwork; there should not have been a “c” in “Blakstone.”)

Dwight Fiske: Case 142
Dwight Fiske: The Fourteenth Wedding Anniversary
