..A good question ?? seems like everyone knew but me
Glad Rhino had Dean put His Talents to work & don't know if anyone else could have captured that Perfect Touch.
There are four great images from Dean's collection in the packaging on the booklet's front cover, rear cover, page 13, and page 15. But both of the booklet's cover photos were not date-appropriate for "Carnival."
I worked closely with the producer on this project, and the word was that Rhino was NOT given full access to Dean's photo collection. It didn't happen. They wanted more.
In fact, Dean chose an inappropriate image for the front cover album art the picture of J&D standing with the treble clef from '63.
That didn't fly, so the producer opted for a different photo for the cover . . . not from Dean.
All in all, the photo from Dean on page 15 . . . J&D wearing their Batman pendants, with the girls in the studio . . . is worth the price of admission. Recording for some of the songs that ended up on "Carnival of Sound" had already begun by that time. I don't know who the photographer was, but it's a great shot.
Photos aside, I'm really proud of Dean's artwork on the front and back covers. The "Jan & Dean" hand lettering is vintage Kittyhawk, and Dean really took some time and care to pull that off.
