Last night I sat and stared at Lana Cantrell's 1969 album THE SIXTH OF LANA. It's such a great title and such a great look. I thought: if only I could somehow bring in JMW Turner, that delightful 18th century English landscaper painter of whale ships and man overboards, then I could somehow marry the two off and Lana Cantrell could not only go whaling but would also be Lana Turner.

The problem, as you might have guessed, is that I had no idea who did the photography for the Lana Cantrell album, THE SIXTH OF LANA.

Enter, the internet!

Now, thanks to a delightful little site called http://compujer.com/lps/framethree.php, I not only know that some guy named Skrebneski photographed the very Lana Cantrell for THE SIXTH OF LANA, but also that Corky McCoy did the cover art for Miles Davis' ON THE CORNER.

And there's more! Look it:
