7 Days to Better Bowling

Released in 1961 by Audio-Dynamics Corp. of Portland, Oregon. It promised better bowling through self-hypnosis. Although for right-handers only.

CAUTION: This recording is for right handed bowlers only. It is unique in its field, and should not be played until you have read the instructions carefully on the reverse side of the jacket.

1. Listen to the record in solitude or free from distraction.
2. Listen to the record while in a relaxed, comfortable position.
3. This recording has been specifically designed to adapt to the schedule of the busy executive or career woman. Side No. 1 may be listened to at any time on any conventional 33-1/3 R.P.M. phonograph. Side No. 2 has been developed to be used on any 33-1/3 R.P.M. automatic player, and when used with a clock radio or timer, will accommodate those who do not have time for daytime listening. Listen for one hour at bedtime. Make certain your record player is set to repeat.

There was a companion album, "7 Days to Better Golf," which also specified that it was for right-handers only. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any clips from it online.

A psychological conditioning program guaranteed to improve your game through the application of auto-conditioning techniques in the areas of : Relaxation, Confidence, Concentration, Coordination.

The prejudice against southpaws is with us everyday. One learns to adapt.

Busy executive or career woman? I guess the idea of a busy female executive hadn't been thought of. Do busy executives bowl?

It says "busy executive," not "busy male executive," so I assume they meant execs who were men, women, or small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri.

My memory of the early 1960s (and all of the 70s) is a little fuzzy, but I seem to recall "career woman" was code for either "old maid" or "lesbian," depending on context. Since it was rare to see a cat lady in that kind of alley, and bowling was one of the few sports open to people of all five Alexandrian sexes, my best guess is they mean the latter.

I recall that "executive" and "female" were considered mutually exclusive in the early 60's. (Yeah - or lesbian.) That was one facet of our revolt in the late 60's. It took a while, of course, but we fixed it, too.

Now we need a Youtube video of "7 days to better bowling" with a small, furry creature from Alpha Centauri teaching southpaws how to play bowling. Or golf.
