Three For The Price of...Almost None




Here's a nice thrift shop score - a three disc loss-leader set from Warner Brothers (Warner/Reprise PRO-423, 1970). Loss-leaders were albums sold cheaply (usually $2 for a two-disc set) by mail to promote the label artists. They were generally promoted on the inner sleeves of Warner Brothers albums. This is the only three-disc set of the series. For those of you who own record changers, side 1 is backed with side 6, side 2 with side 5, and side 3 with side 4 for smooth 1-6 flow. More information here about the whole series. The eight-page included booklet is choice, as well, with a rambling 1970 style and short write-ups about each song/artist.

...were these those that you always found advertised on the inner sleeves, but hardly ever see in the flesh? I'm still confounded by the polyglot traffic jam of their SCHLAGERS! release...
