You don't know her by name — maybe as the "Whipped Cream Lady" — but certainly by the album cover on which she is featured: the 1965 Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass' "Whipped Cream & Other Delights."
There she is, seemingly naked but covered in what is supposed to be whipping cream looking at YOU.
Whenever a list of the most memorable record covers is put together, that album is right at the top
Oh my, does that take me back.Yes indeedy. Sure does take me back.Um... er........Excuse me. I'll be back in five -- no, make that ten -- minutes.;-)
I heard once it's actually shaving cream she's covered in because the whipped cream kept melting under the hot lights in the photographer's studio. And she was something like 7 months pregnant at the time.
My dad bought this album. I think it was because he wanted to play the cover. He had a bunch of these cheesecake classics. Hannes is right it is shaving cream. Which begs the question: Is it Noxzema?Pregnant women do have a certain glow about them, don't they? I'm sure it helped her bust size as well.Dolores Erickson is the same age as my mom who's also a brunet. I think my mom's far prettier. So what was dad thinking?Nevertheless, I think this album was issued to every home in America in 1965. Pat Cooper's spaghetti parody of the cover is quite disgustingly funny.Leon Russell, Carol Kaye and Hal Blaine are all over this record. And you can sorta strip to Love Potion No. 9.P.S. a friend of mine unknowingly posed for a Pink Floyd bootleg album cover with a whip cream motif. It was a play on the title "A Nice Pair," and was called "A Great Set". You may have seen it, and her.Cheers,Vickie Rock
Vickie, here's the image from that bootleg:http://www.audiophileusa.com/covers400water/56222.jpg
Gummo:Yep, that's her, bottom left corner. I told her never to sleep with a bootlegger! She found out about the cover after the fact, but was OK with it. That girl has a heart of gold. The only thing that pissed her off was that it made her thighs look fat.My daughter has a tattooed hussy model colleague out San Diego way who did a photo shoot at her apartment with a variation on this idea 2014 style. It's a bit more raunchy.If you have to excuse yourself for the Herb Alpert cover, I think you might also spend a little alone time with this one:)http://i1282.photobucket.com/albums/a535/VanessaStone/To%20the%20Nth%20Degree/oceanchildseashelleyeswindysmile_zpsfc0631a0.jpgI know what boys like,Vickie Rock
Re: the photos of present day Dolores Erickson in the posted link. Fading beauty can be a sad thing if you don't have anything else on the ball. Dolores seems like she did. My mom looks twenty years younger than Dolores even though she's the same age. Must be the constant moisturizing. Hopefully it's the genes and some go my way.Re: the frosting coquette from San Diego - She has more than a passing resemblance to the late, great Edie Adams, which is a plus.Compare and contrast. http://i1282.photobucket.com/albums/a535/VanessaStone/To%20the%20Nth%20Degree/Edie-Adams-Makes-a-Girl-Unsure-of-Which-Sex-She-Prefers_zps00bf6b0b.jpgandhttp://i1282.photobucket.com/albums/a535/VanessaStone/To%20the%20Nth%20Degree/ocean-child-seashell-eyes-windy-smile_zpsf008bd5f.jpgNow enjoy a Muriel Panatella extra. Extra Length. Extra Pleasure. Extra Taste.Why don't you pick me up and smoke me some time.Vickie Rock

You do indeed know what boys like... Any more from that set of the frosting coquette? Who is she? I may have to write an album just to have that as the cover!
