Gay Novelty “Record,” 1962

This is the gift that didn’t start giving…from 1962, this was a “greeting card” packaged as a LP jacket. The gay appeal of course were the front and back photos of two men apparently kissing at a train station.

The close-up of the back cover reveals “suggested titles,” many of which actually DID make it to male-to-male recordings in the 1960’s, on “Love Is A Drag,” in 1962; Zebedy Colt’s 1969 LP, and the Camp Records mid-60’s “Mad About the Boy.”

Above is the 12″ cardboard record-shaped insert, and below,
an ad for the item in the April 1964 issue of One Magazine.

I’ve never seen the other “cards” mentioned; not sure if they were gay.
