More Asian 45’s

Asia’s a big place and every boy band from Iran to Pakistan wanted to be the Beatles in the 1960’s. The girls wanted to be Lulu or Nancy Sinatra or any other hot anglo singer. American and British influences are everywhere, in terms of dress, style, band names and song selection. One thing they didn’t emulate so closely was their 45 rpm cover art. It’s all over the place and just plain great.
