    1. How can a record lover or collector resist this wonderful book of cartoons and magazine covers by Gene Deitch? Obsessive of course, but that is what a music lover is - or should say "record collector." In the 50's there was a magazine called "Record Changer" that was devoted to the study of the 78 rpm Jazz record. Deitch did most if not all of the covers plus he had a cartoon series in each issue that features a nerdy collector by the name of "The Cat." The character is very much an obsessed rec [...]

    2. Lots of cutely corny self-deprecating humor about record collecting and about being a white person obsessed with black music. Details have changed in the 60-70 years since these cartoons' publications but their jokes are still basically on point; the ones that have dated to irrelevance are educational to boot. The art style is really cool. I have seen some of Gene Deitch's animation work but nothing this complex and distinctive.
