Dolores Erickson – The Whipped Cream Lady
Dolores Erickson is regarded as one of the most notable and recognizable icons of the 1960’s as a result of her famous pose as the whipped cream-covered model for Herb Alpert’s “Whipped Cream & Other Delights” LP. The model for an album cover considered by most vinyl record collectors as one of the most recognizable of all-time, and currently an accomplished artist residing on the West Coast, she now resides “on-line” at VinylTimes.com and we are quite honored she has chosen to do so. Our association with Dolores shifted into high gear following her appearance at the VinylTimes.com “Vinyl-Only Record Show” held in Sept ’06 in NC. It was then that she asked VinylTimes to be the exclusive marketing entity for her line of autographed items. Many of them are available on our site and you can view a selection of Dolores’ personally autographed items . Below are several images taken prior to her birthday in 2010. As you can tell, once a model, always a model. Below the photos are links to recent newspaper/press articles about Dolores. And you can regularly hear tracks from the “Whipped Cream & Other Delights” album on our 24/7 online streaming vinyl radio station Vinyl Times Radio!
