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 (fifteen years ago) link

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.

Fritz Wollner (Fritz), Friday, 30 January 2004 15:39 (fifteen years ago) link

billy definitely could have hung out with these dudes:

Billy is looking so WILLIAMSBURG HIPSTER in that PIC...those jeans alone would probably go for $125 now days.

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

flappy bird, Tuesday, 27 November 2018 03:22 (eleven months ago) link

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 (eleven months ago) link

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.

That Toe Fat cover used to freak me out in the record store when I was a kid. And they had a second album, what the hell is that stuff?

It's mostly the leavings from a roast chicken I think? I've looked at that second LP a few times but I had never even noticed the characters from the first LP (even the lamb!) before.

I think these Toe Fat records are too weird to be fully yawnsome. And the toes themselves are maybe not fat enough to be literal?
