THE HIT SOUNDS OF MERRIE MELODIES--Rare WB In-Store Sampler 2 LP

Released in January 1973 (although the back cover erroneously states these releases are from 'January 1972'), this is another RARE 'Instore Play' LP very similar to the one I listed in April 2010 called "Dance To The Beat Of Looney Tunes" including more bad cover artwork to disappoint Furrball.

The music's damn good with two tracks from GRAM PARSONS and DEEP PURPLE plus THE BEACH BOYS, CLAUDIA LENNEAR, ALEXIS KORNER, RICHARD THOMPSON and more. All four sides are "hosted" by a DJ that sounds like a young Jim Ladd.

PRO 550 - Hit Sounds of Merrie Melodies - Various Artists [1973] (2-LP set) Not available by mail like the other Loss Leader LPs. Distributed at in-store promotions. Beach Boys; Deep Purple; Frankie & Johnny; Barbara Keith; Alexis Korner & Snape; Claudia Lennear; Linda Lewis; Ralph McTell; Gram Parsons; Paul Stookey; Richard Thompson; Dionne Warwick; Wilderness Road.
