That Impressions record is the dorkiest album cover I've seen in a long long time.

I think it's terrific!

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 (sixteen 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 (sixteen years ago) link

Where approximately are they seated?

jody (Jody Beth Rosen), Friday, 30 January 2004 06:47 (sixteen 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 (sixteen 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 (sixteen 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?

who knew.

ddb, Friday, 30 January 2004 16:14 (sixteen years ago) link

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.

no opinion, Friday, 30 January 2004 18:14 (sixteen years ago) link

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

at least they didn't call it "Hands in my Pants"

longtime caller, first time listener (man alive), Monday, 27 January 2020 18:48 (eight months ago) link

I can't help but assume they had one photo of the guy and then just decided what to call the album based on the photo

longtime caller, first time listener (man alive), Monday, 27 January 2020 18:49 (eight months ago) link

i kinda love the images

a lot of the "on the rocks" albums—and there are a lot—are pretty bad but not nec yawnsomely literal.

andrew m., Wednesday, 29 January 2020 15:35 (seven months ago) link

i would like them to be standing on surfboards on top of those rocks please

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Wednesday, 29 January 2020 15:37 (seven months ago) link

the cover for wailing souls' on the rocks has me confused, however.

the public eating of beans (Sparkle Motion), Wednesday, 29 January 2020 15:45 (seven months ago) link

wailing souls cover reminds me when my wife and i were looking to get some hay bales for a halloween party. her country-fried coworker says "you don't want hay you want straw-hay. hay-hay's got chopped up snakes and shit in there." i think of this at least a few times a year.

andrew m., Wednesday, 29 January 2020 15:48 (seven months ago) link

the lesson: ask for straw hay, people.

andrew m., Wednesday, 29 January 2020 15:48 (seven months ago) link

I'm very anxious about getting The Surfers double bass back to shore without salt water damage.

At the last minute, the art director got worried this wasn't obvious enough, so added some Bound Hands for contrast.
