Hi folks, this is a slightly unusual post and I'm hoping that there's an Earl Bostic fan out there who can help. An email arrived earlier today with a request for a Bostic LP cover from around 1957 - 1960. Here's the email (writer's name not included):
Ran across your site tonight and hope you can help me.
My sister was the model for the album cover of a Bostic LP recorded in Cincinnati between the years of 1957-1960 as best we can determine. Her signed album was stolen some years ago and I have yet to find it.
The front shows a white woman with dark hair but only a vertical half. She is doing a "Lauren Bacall" glance.
Believe it or not, Cincinnati has been of no help in this search.
She does not remember the name of the album.
My sister is getting kinda old and is in poor health, so any help would be appreciated.
I've already had a look through my Bostic albums and sites like ebay and so far I can't identify the LP. Can anyone help with identifying the correct album, or even better, send in a cover scan?
