Thanks Jim for reminding me of the artist on the Mickey Spillane/Mike Hammer EP 45. Stan Purdy! My memory is that this was superior to the LP with music from the Darin McGavin series. And I thought I remembered Spillane doing a narration but wasn't sure enough to say so. One day the box in storage with this prize will be opened.
