Strange Record Covers

Post by donnie » Thu Apr 05, 2018 2:01 pm

Well, as a companion to our "Unbelievable Ads" thread, I thought I'd start one for really odd LP covers of the past—and there are some, my friends. :o :)

Here are two for starters.

:lol: Oh, man... Somehow I don't think I'd have been rushing to buy that one.

Well, since you have one with a woman coming out of the ground, can I have one with a dude coming out of the water? A GIANT dude?

This one generated such an outcry that they had to change the cover.

P.S. I love this thread idea.

Whether or not you want him to might be another question...

Have you seen this one by a band called The Lumineers? Neato, huh?

Yes! I don't know about the band, but I've seen that cover before. Someone posted about that awhile back somewhere. (It may have been Steppie on the old board - ??) Anyway, that's a neat cover. I wonder how many who see the cover know who that is.

It might even have been me in this board. :lol: I didn't remember if I'd posted it before. I don't know.... Those who love the band probably learn about her.
