I am an avid collector of The Jackie Gleason Orchestra. I have a Capitol/Toshiba Lp "Deluxe/Romantic Movie Themes For Lovers Only" Sample Record, that has printing on the label and jacket front in Japanese. Also on the jacket is hand written notations. I wonder if any member here can translate for me?

It's interesting that one line translates as "Night Scream Theme."
Again, thanks.

Photo 3: I think '夜のスクリーン テーマ' (yoru no sukuriin teema) is better translated as 'Night Screen Themes'. 'sukuriin' (screen) was often used to refer to movies. So the Japanese title of the album is 'deluxe night screen themes'.

Perhaps there was a late night TV show called Night Screen that featured romantic movies. Or perhaps the phrase 'night screen' had some personal meaning for whoever it was that wrote those notes.
