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 opinion, Friday, 30 January 2004 06:21 (seventeen years ago) link

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

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Friday, 30 January 2004 06:34 (seventeen years ago) link

Where approximately are they seated?

jody (Jody Beth Rosen), Friday, 30 January 2004 06:47 (seventeen years ago) link

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 (seventeen 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 (seventeen 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.


OTM re: Salt Stained Rock Boots, AWESOME!


very punk.

Do my eyes deceive me...or is that a LITTLE bit of SIDEPIPE there too?

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...

"Believe it or not, the name of this album is "The Earth, a Small Man, His Dog and a Chicken"

But the cover has a cock, not a chicken.

1981 seems decidedly late to the party for yawnsomely literal album covers, but there you have it.

It's 2021 and Zara Larsson Poster Girl wants the party to carry on.

I don't understand why they didn't call their record "Reaching for Gulls." I do respect the pixelated font though

Shaidar Logoff (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Wednesday, 28 April 2021 02:27 (three months ago) link

I have a feeling this is sardonically the other way round, as in the image came first and they literally named the album after it.

This one cracks me up whenever I see it... someone decided at the last minute that the cover needed some yawnsome literal-ness.

it also positions itself quite awesomely literally as a follow-up to MJ’s Off the Wall...
