Got Any of These in YOUR Album Collection?

These are not photoshopped. These are all too horribly real.

These are the kind of album covers that make you think of three letters....WTF??? (No, that doesn't stand for Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.)

Click here for a slice o' vinyl hell. Even payola couldn't help these guys.

My personal favorite is the one by Freddy Gage.....done the right way, it has a lot of punk possibility. Too bad the Fredster ain't punk.

But, these are truly shocking. Mylon really shouldn't borrow his girlfriend's blouse...

    A guy at work has that "At Play with The Playmates" picture posted on his cube wall. It seems that one of our coworkers looks suspiciously like the guy at the front of the Vespa.

    And the Ritchie Family? I'm thinking an exec was having a coke-induced brainstorm something like "the Village People are hot right now... REAL HOT... so let's do something like that with the cover, but let's make it really, REALLY over-the-top gay!"

    "The Playmates' one big hit was the 1958 novelty "Beep Beep," about the little Nash Rambler that a Cadillac couldn't outrun. […] the Playmates had their own identity and, at times, a delightfully perverse sense of humor.

    (found on the web. lost the link. but I'll be durned if I haven't heard that song and chuckled at it before.)

    Yeah, I remember that song! I think they had it a couple times on Dr Demento.....

    Same here. He never mentioned their getting together to squish a Vespa, though. Weird.
