It's a 2 LP set (78's) and has a little story book on the inside covers. The story of Little Black Sambo was written in 1899 by Helen Bannerma and according to wikipedia it's a perfect example "darky iconography"
I got this for Christmas from Vintage Spinster and I did a full on gay gasp! I love kitschy racist crap! I owe Dave, of Kate and Dave, a big thanks for this as well.
I think it's strange they don't list the Illustrator, but in the bottom corner it's signed Barnes...Whoever this Barnes is I like his style.
We were going to order pizza for dinner tonight, but we changed it to pancakes....with butter
Read this guys Bio! It's sounds like they are introducing Liberace!
Anyone remember the pancake house called "Lil' Sambo's" on the Oregon Coast?? I always wanted to go but we never did.
I was trying to remember what my copy of Little Black Sambo looked like. After a bit of hunting on Google I found my copy.
I love the coy look Sambo is giving the tiger..."Hey tiger..."
Happy New Year from your Whores of Vinyl!
