Here is a cover of singer Dave Mason’s New Crest on an Old Wave. It never occurred to me that the artwork was a part of pop culture before appearing on Mason’s album, but. . .
A few weeks ago in one of the many well known restaurant chains with various artifacts and relics of Americana adorning the walls, I look up and see this painting. However, it’s not touting Mason’s album, but a candy called “Chewy Fruit.” The wording said, “I’m ready to fight for my Chew Fruit chocolate.” Then there was something about “Allen Confections,” which could have been a local manufacturer.
Anyone familiar with these confectionary morsels?
