That Impressions record is the dorkiest album cover I've seen in a long long time.

This makes it not so literal, doesn't it? Since the record is of them performing, not attending?

The Springfield says something about American notions of "working class"!

No, it's a studio record. The cover depicts them literally at Yankee Stadium. It's a joke, geddit?

Upper decks somewhere, if I remember correctly. "Green Light" is on this record (easily their most enjoyable track).

Fritz Wollner (Fritz), Friday, 30 January 2004 15:37 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

on his foot there, do you think that's wear-and-tear on the album cover or is it salt-stains on his zippered ankle boots? salt stains on rock boots are awesome.

Yeah but I bet the genius execs who came up with/approved the cover were not.

But the windmill isn't in a valley, it's on a hill. Why would you put a windmill in a valley? The album should be called Hill of the Windmill.

Or "Valley From Which You Can See the Windmill". Imagine if it was called Whirlpool of the Meerkats or Ocean of the Spiders. It wouldn't make sense. I'm sure there are whirlpools from which you can see meerkats but that doesn't narrow things down enough.

Otherwise every place on Earth would be called Location From Which You Can See the Moon, except for caves.

Ashley Pomeroy, Wednesday, 28 November 2018 19:44 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I think the windmill rules over the valley with its metallic sails of doom, is the idea. Ocean of the Spiders would've been better for sure.
