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?

Where approximately are they seated?

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

Err...but Mark, that album's called Sucking in the 70's. I don't see in sucking go on.

billy joel looks so cool in that! I wonder if he went to see The Dictators back in the day, or something... maybe The Hassle even opened for them!

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.

Fritz Wollner (Fritz), Friday, 30 January 2004 15:39 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

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.


OTM re: Salt Stained Rock Boots, AWESOME!

Billy looks cool, but his reflection is the campest way to have a chest-burster kill you ever.

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

There's probably 100 better examples of this one, but this was all I could find...

Is the product placement on Bigger Than Both Of Us significant or something? Seems to be consciously conspicuous in a way that doesn't seem accidental. but Ritz crackers as a lifestyle choice?

Stevolende, Monday, 2 April 2018 22:08 (four months ago) Permalink

Yeah that's weird, can't recall seeing anything like that on an LP cover (except "The Who Sell Out").

are those ritz crackers on the war babies cover? maybe they just like Ritz

A Millennial band should do an album called "Cola War Babies," with a cover depicting (similarly arranged) 1980s ephemera...

(With ideas like this, it's amazing I need to work for a living!)

Those are bills and final demands floating in the water DO YOU SEE, though I think they put a fish in there in case you weren't sure it was water.

I posted this in some other album cover thread but it should be here too. But it's not yawn-inducing. It's brilliant and magnificent and we should all bask in its splendor.
