There were no inside covers, just a standard two sided record jacket. Not even the sleeve had any artwork. Just a standard generic sleeve. The record itself had one track on each side. I believe i have the 2099th record pressed in the run. Etched in the return grooves is the number JFK 2099A3. The B side has JFK 2099B1 etched in the return grooves.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy was our 35th president, the first and only Catholic faith president. This one sentence spoken by Kennedy during his Inaugural Address, January 20th, 1961, “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.” has been etched in the heart and minds of many Americans, young and old. They are very wise words, especially for today.
