Jan & Dean - Singles, Cars & Girls

Back in the seventies, United Artists released a series of double-LP anthology albums called Legendary Masters, or something like that, attempting to flog some sales out of artists that really weren't considered very hip anymore, like Fats Domino, Ricky Nelson, and Jan & Dean.

The gatefold of the Jan & Dean album included an amusing chart delineating the equipment their hit singles were recorded on, chart success, et cetera, and most amusingly, what cars the boys were driving and who their girlfriends were at the time. (Click on the picture to see a legible version.)

This is the album that contains this fine sociological data, but I don't know if the CD version includes all the informative notes from the vinyl release.
