Oil And Water Don't Mix


Somehow, I don't think the artwork on this LP jacket is what Mussorgsky was trying to capture with his Pictures At An Exhibition. If I can believe what I read on the back of The Nord Deutsches Symphony Orchestra Conducted By Wilhelm Schuechter-Mussorgsky: Pictures At An Exhibition (Somerset SF-7800), from which this cover is taken, Mussorgsky wrote his work in honor of artist Victor Hartman. I doubt that Victor Hartman ever did any work in psychedelic oil and water mixtures.
