Blues For A Dead Lover

Blues For A Dead Lover albert nuetzel cover 1962

Never read it. Never even saw an actual copy. For all I know, it might be wonderful…or unreadable trash. A lot of vintage sleaze and retro-racy crime novels are, after all. (The latter, that is.)

But I absolutely adore that title, Blues For A Dead Lover. And the saucy cover illustration by Albert Nuetzel ( 1901 – 1969) on this 1962 Uptown Books paperback is pretty nice too. Nuetzel was a movie studio artist and painting instructor in Los Angeles, and unlike this cover art example, best known for his science fiction pulp magazine and paperback illustrations.
