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).

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.

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.

So many aspects of 60s titles carry the seeds of the thread genre - the jazz albums punning on the artists' name thread really opens out that territory. It's really hard to articulate what feels different about the lame and terrible jokes or proclamations of casual-ness from the later period. Maybe the sense that the artist came up with the title themselves and feel it represents their DGAF Good-Times Young Dude Swag, versus the studio titles cooked up by the advertising boys down the hall.

looking at the "horrible" thread i now see that you and i had an exchange that sort of touched on what you're getting at in that post. perhaps these questions will never be resolved.

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 (two months ago) Permalink

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

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