From “Children’s Music” like Danny Kaye and Winnie the Pooh, to “Movie and Broadway” with Oklahoma and Song of Norway, you can bet that Decca Records really does offer “a new world of sound.” Perhaps popular vocalists like Rick Nelson or Brenda Lee is more your bag, or escape the continental US with a handful of great “Hawaiian Music” with Alfred Apaka or The Honolulu Symphony Orchestra. Whatever your flavor, Decca has you covered.
Decca Records spans an almost spectrum-like array of eclectic ear candy. Ranging from Children’s music (Winnie the Pooh), to Hawaiian music (Alfred Apaka), to Classical (Vivaldi), and last but certainly not least, to William Shatner (in whose 1968 album, The Transformed Man, I excavated this colorful insert).
It’s always interesting to see how creative these self-promoting record label inserts get in attempting to showcase their less-than-chart-topping-hit-records. I particularly dig this insert’s layout and how a simple arrow (repeated, obviously) can direct the eye to what the designer wants to showcase, and the order in which they want it presented. It’s almost a roadmap that effectively leads to the consumer’s ultimate destination… A New World of Sound… On Decca.
