Attention Stockholm - Virna Lindt

Rifling through my record drawer (I know, no respect) in search of the Dolly Mixture single I posted yesterday, I spotted another familiar, & very pleasing, picture sleeve from 1981 - by Virna Lindt.

It's way better than a cheesy sleeve though; a playful, yet straight-faced romp through a secret-agenty world of spies, that removes the cold from Cold War... sort-of Bond, Palmer & John Drake combined, in alluring female form; working undercover (naturally), in the world of International Haute Couture, with secret devices in make-up bags, Iron Curtain-Calls - glamorous indeed. The music's not bad either; some great electric piano & reverby tremeloed guitar.
