You know, I’d get a lot more done if some people, and yes I’m talking about you, Eric Zorn, would stop posting links to the Ten Worst Album Covers of All Time.
Anyway, it’s a crap list, because it leaves off Mom’s Apple Pie, which I should probably warn you is sorta NSFW. The cover was stupid and juvenile and the music, horrendous.

That was funny stuff!

That was fun. Joyce reminded of the woman member of te bad singing teacher duo from SNL.
Nice to have something cheery after a crappy day at work. For the third time in 3 years someone removed and took all the in ground exterior lights at one of my branch libraries. Among other things.

Ick! In my googling about I found a site called the Museum of Bad Album Covers and on that site, somewhere I won’t even say where, is an album cover that is so truly distasteful I didn’t even want to mention the site on my family-friendly blog. Here at nn.com, though, where anything goes…

By all means, Eric, mention it! Link to it!
nancy said on May 16, 2006 at 9:38 pm
I’ll do so, Alex. Whatever you do, DON’T click on pages 25 and 26. Especially 26.
alex said on May 16, 2006 at 10:38 pm
Oh. My. God. The heck with page 26. It’s not half as creepy to my jaded sensibilities as Bobby Sherman in the Cat Woman mask. And no that Sensuous Black Man’s head isn’t pasted on. It’s white just like his palms, probably purple like they all are if you could really see it up close.

Bwaaaa ha ha ha.
I always liked this album I started playing when I worked at the college radio station. When they took a bunch of albums to sell for a fund raiser, I asked if they took this one. Nobody knew, and then I described it as the one with the green afros.
YES! So I ran to the union, and saved this classic from the clutches of some patron.

Oh, what scares me is the fact that NN knows that the music on mom’s apple pie sucked. You bought that?
Thank you, drive through.
nancy said on May 17, 2006 at 7:48 am
Boyfriend had it. He also preserved the safe-for-retail shrink wrap, which had the pie protected by bricks and barbed wire.
Thanks for that link, btw. I don’t think I could have gotten through the day without seeing THAT.
Connie said on May 17, 2006 at 9:26 am
I could have cheerfully gotten through my day without seeing THAT. Though I was warned.
brian stouder said on May 17, 2006 at 9:52 am
Well, the artistic effort clearly bloomed; it made an impact and really pulled me in (so to speak)
I’d ‘a bought it
(except come to think of it, it probably wouldn’t fit in my dresser drawer – where it would have to be buried)
Peter said on May 17, 2006 at 10:08 am
If memory serves me right, the scary picture isn’t the front cover but the picture of the band on the back – straight out of Deliverance!
Connie said on May 17, 2006 at 2:27 pm
As if seeing that weren’t bad enough I now the “The Joy of Gay Sex” on my desk. Drawings, not photos, but yuck, yuck, yuck. Some guy called the other day to tell me he heard discussion of it on his favorite talk radio station, and wanted to know if we had it. I hate having to have discussions with people about these kinds of books.
ashley said on May 17, 2006 at 2:52 pm
Alex: I think they’re referring to the guy’s skull being pasted on. It’s about 20% smaller than it should be.
Connie/NN: I take it the THAT you’re referring to is the Damien pic, not the Jesse Morrison pic.
And shouldn’t the Scorpions get their own hall of shame?
Connie said on May 17, 2006 at 3:24 pm
Yes, Ashley, the Damien one. And I kind of like the Scorpion one. My girlfriend Beth has had several in office surgeries to remove breast fibroids and she told me they look just like bubble gum being pulled out of her breast. Or maybe I’m just not getting it.
I’m still avoiding looking at those pictures in Joy of Gay Sex.
