Eric Coates

Musically this record has a certain Home Service charm (Coates composed the theme to the Dam Busters and ‘By a Sleepy Lagoon’ which became the music for Desert Island Discs). It is also steeped in the melancholy of a world lost in time. This LP from, I think, 1950 has a wonderful sleeve though…designer and illustrator unknown. Anyone out there got any ideas?
