Great (and bad) record sleeves of the past … from my collection.
Move your cursor over the album for its details, click on it for a larger picture.
The great Jack Nitzsche. I recall finding this in an op shop many years ago and my mate Carl, who was with me, took one look at the sleeve and said …."It's pretty clear why he's lonely". Fair comment.
Organ instrumental albums are easy targets. Many were made in the 50s. Bongos were also prominent in the 50s. But, the question remains, did they intend a double entendre at the time?
Evangelical Christian albums are easy targets but Marcy is asking for it. Evangelicalism plus ventriloquism equals religion for dummies?
The Australian gardening legend puts his name to an allbum of muzak which would make the sturdiest begonia wilt. Songs include "The Theme from Dr Zhivago", "Morning has Broken" and "The Way we Were". All perfect for plants.
Even with my cynicsm of any criticism remotely sounding PC this sleeve certainly leaves a lot to be desired.
Nothing says romance like some scattered flower petals. Yeh, whatever.
Harald, are you surprised?
When I want to impress the chicks I pull out my zither. Seriously, I think there is room for zither parties in the 21st century. Alcohol would help also.
"Couldn't" should be replaced with "shouldn't". What's with the ape? I love accordions. They remind me of my youth. So do apes for that matter …. I used to read a lot of Tarzan novels.
Maybe it's my Catholic education but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and accept that they didn't know that this sleeve could be taken the wrong way.
wtf? Given the equipment you'd think Pagliaro was a English or German military afficonado at best, kinky porn star at worst, but he's actually a French Canadian rocker.
I've said it before … organ albums are easy targets. But organ and bongos! Benny Hill where are you? Actually the album is quite good and there is nothing quite like announcing at dinner parties that you are about to pull out "Organ and Bongos".
I have never seen a better reason for struggling to become a pop star than this. The photoshoot to your first album cover.
The look on Harry's face clearly indicates he knows the power he has over women.
Move over rock n roll guitar Gods the xylophone is clearly the instrument of sex and seduction. Have you ever seen a girl in such ecstacy? I wish my mallets had that effect on chicks.
And isn't she pleased with that idea.
Yup, organ albums, hours of amusement.
Lesson one in how to sell an album of jazz standards by a MOR Dutch saxophononist to Americans.
Given the notoriously liberal Dutch I'm surprised with the rather conservative attire on the girl. No clogs though.
If I opened the door and saw this party I think I would say "I'm scared and I'm not coming in".
I'm very happy for Sally. My only advice is make sure you are wearing protection if you go up that alley.
Where is this beach? Waikiki you say. How much are flights?
"Send Me The Pillow That You Dream On"
My advice : say "No"
