This is my collection of a run of poetry albums released in the late 60's on Argo
they go up to #14 which always seemed like an odd number to stop at.

The beautiful sleeves all have paintings on the front done by children and the
poems are read by Prunella Scales, Patrick Wymark, Michael Hordern and others,
with the music by Ewan MacColl & Peggy Seeger & The Critics Group.
I have more poetry vinyl of course and will post up more, but would like to see yours.

I like this Medway Poets LP quite a bit, and recently completed the Wordcore spoken word and poetry 7" series from Kill Rock Stars (10 volumes issued throughout the 90's, some of these get pretty dark and out-there).

      Very nice, these covers! May I ask how old these "children" have been, when they created the drawings for these covers? .

      The only cover I would attribute to a child is the no. 8 cover. Don't get me wrong, I just wondered about your statement mentioned above. Are there credits to children mentioned somewhere? I'm just interested - if these pictures are created by "children", 'ARGO' managed to discover a whole lot of so called 'infant prodigies'.

      I love these cover, they're great! .
