    Frank Frazetta Movies Are Better Than Ever Jonathan Winters Comedy Album Cover Original Art (Verve V6-15057, 1964). Frank Frazetta did three unique album covers in the 1960s. Herman's Hermits, a comedy album about LBJ, and this Jonathan Winters album. Of these three, this piece is the only one currently known to exist. All of the movie soundtrack Frazetta album cover art was taken from the films' one-sheets, and was not new art.
    Most of us celebrate Frank Frazetta as a master of fantasy art and for his facility at rendering the voluptuous female form. His superb talents as a caricaturist and cartoonist are often overlooked. In this raucous comedy album, Jonathan Winters created offbeat voices and personas for his madcap send-ups of our favorite movie genres -- in such classic comedy bits as "Horror Movies," "Great White Hunter," Prison Scene," and "Hip Robin Hood," among others. Frazetta has captured the essence of each far-out Winters characterization in his mirthful montage.
    This oil on board comedy classic has an overall size of 19" x 19.5". Frazetta's album covers rarely come to market -- this is the first we've offered. There are paper surface pulls along the upper edge while the left, right, and bottom margins have been extended, using cut-and-pieced-together additions to accommodate the final proportions of the printed cover. There is also some minor sticky residue in outer spots on the painting's surface from previous matting; overall, its condition is Very Good. Signed with the classic signature at the lower left.
    Also included with this lot are the printed album cover, the record album, and a color photograph of the cover art. Sure to make a spectacular showpiece for any Frank Frazetta or Jonathan Winters fan-addict.
