Michael Steinman

I'm no psychiatrist, but that album cover appealed to the solitary male jazz fan by implying a series of easy steps to carnal / romantic / emotional bliss.
1. Buy Dick Garcia record.
2. By some stroke of luck (easier to imagine than to accomplish) have beautiful woman in your jazzy pad to hear record. Do nothing but play it and entrance her with its beauty.
3. Later that evening, she will pick up her (heavy) phone receiver, call you from her bed, and insist sweetly that life will not be complete unless you join her there, with the record playing softly in the background.

Like most fantasies, it probably never got beyond step 1 -- but it stimulated record buyers, I hope.
