    I just stumbled on a small photo of this LP the other day. So great to see it larger here. The details in the drawing are great, the water especially. I also love the straw on Santa’s hat and the fact that a giant lei is how he steers his fish. The color scheme is excellent too.

    Love that the record company is 49th State Hawaii Record Co.
