This record was released by a Religious Music label, Sacred, founded by Earle Williams in Los Angeles in 1941. Their first release involved someone playing sacred music on chimes. They were the label for Ralph Charmichael's One Hundred And Two Strings recordings, a staple in All Fine Christian Homes™, and by AFCH™, I mean Evangelical Christian homes, not that household of heretical Episcopalianism in which you were raised. According to my sources, Sacred was purchased by Word Records in 1960 and phased out in the early 70's. This record looks like it was released in the late 50's - early 60's, but since it IS a Fundie release, it could be the late 60's, evangelical clothing styles always being some ten years behind the times back then.
So wadda we got here? A little boy in what looks (to me) like a doctor or dentist waiting room (I say this because of the magazine rack on the left there) or perhaps a poorly decorated living room, with his ear to the left-hand speaker of a stereophonic phonograph. One would assume that he is listening to Edifying Tunes of a Christian Nature. However, the record sleeve is prominently displayed on the top of the stereophonic phonograph machine thingy, and the title is The Art of Love and then the words Kama Sutra in large letters. I tried to enlarge this so that I could read the title, but no such luck. Is this an instructional record, or is this music inspired by the Kama Sutra? Does our music-loving-toddler hear what he thinks are animal noises, or is he receiving instruction beyond his ken, or is he amazed by the sound of the tympani? I don't know about your Fine Christian Home, but we didn't even KNOW about any Kama Sutra in my
What do YOU think is going on here, and WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?
