Comments: This most beautiful cover featuring Warhol's blotted line technique at its best was commissioned especially for this LP of Tennessee Williams reading from The Glass Menagerie, The Yellow Bird and five other poems. This record had been released previously with the same catalogue number but with different artwork not by Warhol. This fourth printing version with Warhols illustration was first released in 1960 - interesting to note that Caedmon changed address in this year and re released the album with slightly different cover colours
