Yes, fabulous. Very good. I never get tired of checking out old record covers: you can never have too many of these sites. Bookmarked. Thank you Mr. wonderchicken.

Nice find... I may live in the 50's for the rest of the day... The commentary is worth reading as well...

'Golden Trumpet'. Heh.

[Not so much 'some' nudity as 'it's nearly all' nudity!]

Well, the front page is meaty at the moment, i_cola, but there's heaps of funky non-nekkid stuff in the category archives.

Borat?

These guys did "96 Tears" (unless they're a different Mysterians).

You don't hear a capella as much these days because this woman killed and buried it.

This one is a blaxploitation version of The Sensuous Man and The Sensuous Woman.

Opie comes out..

Album cover art is something that gen Y and younger have really missed out on. So much you can't to in the tiny space a CD cover gives you, and even less with an Mp3 player screen. Alice Cooper's Schools Out fold out desk, the Billion Dollar Babies wallet, Led Zeppelin III....

What, No Ohio Players covers! Man, back in the day, you'd play the album, and freak your meat to the cover and the beats. Good times.

For a ridiculously awesome metal version of the same concept visit the (dead serious and irony free) Vibrations of Doom classic album archive and start clicking around.

For example.

The world's greatest = the most boobified, apparently.

Vinyl records - they're really heavy aren't they. One of my memories is, as a naive 17 year old emigrating to Australia from from Britain in 1974, arriving at Heathrow Airport with my stuff. No idea of luggage restrictions. I had my record collection of course, why wouldn't I take my records with me?
I still had my first records (birthday presents), Led Zeppelin II and Woodstock, and I had been collecting hard ever since (approx 6 years), so I had a shit load (several hundred). The check-in clerk looked at me as though I was crazy and told me I had to do a cull. I was forced to make a decision at the airport and kept my Yes albums and left the rest by the side of a garbage bin at the airport.

Yes they are different Mysterians, but ?'s cover could be on the site, too.

I'm prety sure I had this one growing up.

It's funny seeing Ghost Town on there, as it seems to be at least 10 years newer (1981?) than everything else.

Ages ago I bought this one just for the cover, which I found appealing.

Ha, Fidelity, I knew it had to be that one! I remember it well. My grandpa had that. I was too little to imagine how much he enjoyed it. LOL!
