Atlantic Leads The Field

I found this 7" single sleeve today at a junk store, and thought it was worth sharing. It is from Atlantic Records, but the record inside was from Mercury. No matter, because I thought the sleeve stood on it's own. You can see the sketches of the Atlantic artists above, most of which aare pretty far off-model. I don't know who they had draw these, you'd have a hard time connecting the faces with the names if they weren't next to each other on the sleeve. For the sake of the search engines finding this post, the artists shown are Joe Turner, LaVern Baker, Clyde McPhatter And The Drifters, Ruth Brown, Ray Charles and The Clovers. The flipside below has a handful of musicians that are almost worthy of my sharing out as doodles.
