She’s on the rocks!


One of the great LP covers of lounge music here’s On the Rocks.

Bob Thompson (1924-) has been called “an overlooked genius of American pop music.” He is most famous for the Space Age Bachelor Pad records he created in the late 1950s.

These one-of-a-kind discs feature a singular sound that evokes cocktail glasses, swingin’ guys and gals, and all-night mischief.

You might imagine “Austin Powers” or Hugh Hefner putting Bob Thompson records on their hi-fis.

The albums include radically rehipped standards and daring originals—spiced up with purring girls, mad percussion, or propulsive Atomic Age sound effects.

The hot legs, cocktails, and rocket ships make the Living Stereo LP covers stand out!
