(that title is an inside joke, so kindly disregard it)
Nice cheesecakey front, too. ;)
Ah, there it is.
More info on Ronnie Aldrich here. You can see there that he's a pleasant looking fella, but honestly, I'd rather see the girl on the cover. Heh.

Banjo party time, that is!
I can't picture an album like this being played at a party nowadays, not even in places you'd think of as being more banjo-centric than most. :-(

Don't get too excited by that intriguing acronym, it only stands for...
Yay. :-/ There is a very interesting at-the-time fact below, though!
They put "O Canada" on it? Weird.
Partial Nuclear Test Ban Treaty? Wha?!
World's leading producer of ASBESTOS! Sorry, citizens of Earth...
They played a little commercial/P.S.A./whatever about the Kanatta thing roughly 17 trillion times throughout the 90s. Maybe it's on YouTube. *checking* Nope! (I didn't look for very long)

Not nowadays! :p (well...I could quite easily, actually. Could you?)
This is one o' them 8" records. Gives tons of info on the front, which is good in this case.
Five years from when? Heh.
The album doesn't teach you how to get one of these, unfortunately.
In other words, devote your life to making money and you might succeed. :p
This album was a HUGE success. According to his wiki page, "In 1956 he produced a spoken word record, The Strangest Secret, which sold over a million copies, making it the first spoken-word recording to achieve Gold Record status."

That was my thought based on something on the back of this album. Bear with me. :p
Very K-tel-like. I dig it.
And now the back cover...
There's the Fonz-like character...
...and there's his Medic Alert bracelet! :p Poor guy.

No, not this show (I couldn't quite remember the name until I looked it up, but it's close!), but rather, the return of Bob Harrington! (see post immediately before this one)
Blogger sure does wreck pictures sometimes! It wasn't great to begin with, but better than this. (I've since changed it to link offsite, but my sentiment remains) Anyway, Bob sure had some good cover art. Simple and very eye-catching, kinda like K-tel's. Haha.
His fun label again.
If the album is terrifying, why would I want to listen to it? ;) Hey, I didn't know Alabama and New England were that close together!

This cover really jumped out from the rest in the bin...
If eye catching...ness is the number one priority in marketing (is it?), then this is a home run or something!
Nice label, too!
"...the number one cause of divorce today is marriage" Haha! :)
I get the sentiment in that last panel, but it's a bit awkwardly written, no?
Stay tuned for another doozy of a cover from Bob Harrington! :)
