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 (thirteen 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.


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...

the cover kind of makes it look like Ed is the monkey and that the album is a collaboration between him and a real white guy with a guitar

better not to put spaghetti on your cover and be thought yawnsomely literal, than to put spaghetti on your cover and remove all doubt.
