Alfred Newman/Ken Darby: Ports of Paradise

It’s hard to find a copy of this record cover that isn’t wrecked because of the large die-cut hole in the thin cardboard sleeve, but this one was in perfect condition. The cutout reveals the cover of a lush 16 page booklet of Hawaiian tourist scenes.

The record is a promotional item for the Matson steamship line which used to offer passenger cruises from the U.S. mainland to south seas destinations including New Zealand, Tahiti and Hawaii.
