Wild Is Love - Nat King Cole (1960)

I hit a rich vein of vinyl in a charity shop yesterday and this is one of the albums, a totally lush design package featuring a booklet, which these images come from. The lyrics are by Dotty Wayne, music by Ray Rasch, and Nelson Riddle arranged what is a concept album on which Nat talks and sings us through the whole merry-go-round of love. 'There are hundreds of thousands of girls in the world' sings the male chorus, 'At the picnic, in the phone booth, at the racetrack!' - oh yeah! Girls, in the late-50s, you can't beat 'em. Girls in the 60s too, of course, except hippies. Girls now are rubbish.
