Not as good as their one and only amazing album, but still a nice song and if you own it, you've got a piece of art in your hands. When you look at the artwork you might recognize the world famous abstract painter Piet Mondriaan. One of his most precious paintings is the Victory Boogie-Woogie, since 1998 in the collection of the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague. It was purchased at a cost of 80 million guilders (approximately 35 million euros) from the American collector Samuel Irving Newhouse by the Dutch National Art Foundation through a gift from the Dutch Central Bank, commemorating the introduction of the euro. The gift was heavily criticized by the Dutch people and raised questions in the Dutch House of Representatives. All very interesting but what is the connection with Manhattan Records and music? In 1938 Piet Mondriaan left Holland due to the increasing tensions in Europe and moved to London. In 1940 he just nearly escaped from a bombing during the Blitz Krieg and it made him decide to leave the UK on the 23rd of September. He embarked on a ship from Birmingham to arrive in New York ten days later. He was welcomed by Harry Holtzman who helped him to get an atelier at 353 East 56th Street, Manhattan. Harry also bought him some furniture and a record player and introduced him to Boogie-Woogie and Blues. From 1942 to 1944 Piet Mondriaan worked on his masterpiece inspired by music, in his own words "by putting some Boogie-Woogie into the painting", but leaving it unfinished. He died of pneumonia in 1944 and was buried at the Cypress Hill cemetery in New York. There you have it, this sleeve, Manhattan Records, Piet Mondriaan, and music. Remember, one morning you might wake up, discovering your money is worth zip, but music and art will always be there and might inspire you to do great things.
