Anton Karas




I love that the stock photo used for this Austrian LP cover shows a group of people eating, drinking, and smoking, all at the same time. It reminds me that Anton Karas’s zither makes wonderful dining music, not just a brilliant soundtrack to a great film. I salvaged this album from a local thrift store and had no idea the sleeve was signed until I pulled the record out when I got it home. It’s not the most attractive item, but it’s certainly worth the one dollar price tag.
