Can anyone tell me any good sites on the web that have decent pictures of 50's and 60's polynesian records? I am a graphic design student and need to find some pictures of album covers asap for a project. Any help is greatly appreciated, I have looked all over the web and cant really find any good sites. I am particularly looking for 60's hula girl theme covers. Thanks.

the above post is me, sorry I couldnt remember my user name since I havnt been on here in a while. I happened to remember one of my older posts and looked up the topic and was able to find the original user name. Sorry about the confusion. I still would love any help on finding sites of album covers if anyone knows any places. Thanks.

Hopefully not overkill, but here are a few more. Let me know if you'd like a larger scan of any individual cover:

wow thanks coconutboy those are just beautiful covers! You can never have enough of this kind of thing its definately not overkill LOL. I will get back to you on some of the covers I would like to have high res files of if possible. Thanks so much for posting these they are way cool. I wonder if anyone has published a book of nothing but polynesian record covers? That would be awesome.
