Front and Back Sleeve.

The Clones of Dr Funkenstein; resonates this album as back in the day it was all about being different. Like most things the great George Clinton produced was way ahead and off his head at the same time.

I vividly remember my first album, as until then I’d only bought singles with my pocket money. I vividly remember my mum saying that now I was 12, and after mithering for an album for ages, I could indeed have the ABC album as soon as it came out. So The Lexican Of Love was my first ever album, so that makes it special. 

 

Thereafter, all my money from paper rounds, Avon rounds, Egg rounds and later cinema wages, always went on records. One of my favourites 💕💕💕💕

Still know every lyric to every song 🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶💕💕

You don’t seem old enough for that.
Don’t tell us that you went around ‘borrowing’ VW bonnet badges?

 

Hmm, I feel that despite my extensive CD and Vinyl collections, my choices will be limited by the ‘artistic’ tastes of my favourite bands, let’s face it ‘Lovehunter,’ ‘Slide it in,’ and ‘Saints and Sinners’ are all likely to get me into bother. 
‘Cherry Pie’ (Dodgy) although D.R.F.S.R may be okay?
‘Slave to the thrill’ (So dodgy they censored it.)

Ah, ‘Ode to Tipper Gore’ them were the days.

I shall return once I’ve had a think.

One of my favs. Good old springsteen had to save up hard for this as it was almost a weeks wages at the time over £40 in november 1986 that was a lot of money for a 17 yr old. 

5 vinal LP in a box set. With 40 songs.

Some of my very favourite vinyl LPs here, evoking a certain phase of my music listening experiences. I still give all of these some airplay time.


But for the best album covers - can I have 3?!


I’d say that London Calling is my pick of these.

I had this on vinyl and must of sold it when I was 16 or 17. Think its a bit rare. Many years ago because it was bugging me I found it on CD I was surprised how it crossed over into several sounds before I new that. Its a live album and I never liked the tracks like 21st Century Schizoid Man on the non live album. Never even listened to their other Albums. That track was sampled by Kanye and sampled for a TV advert etc. Always surprised me that my recollection was it was sort of heavy progressive rock until I heard it again over 30 years later and fitted into the fusion jazz I liked from there after. 

 

Such a cool post @Strutt G! I love Roxy Music covers, and Roxy Music in general. I think because they were always all over the floors of my dad’s and my nan’s when I was growing up, while the vinyl player was blaring ‘Mother of pearl’. Here’s a couple of the more PG covers that I like:

@Mads love Roxy Music specially whilst Brian Eno was around. I had that for your pleasure album. Another one sold off to finance my entry into the underground soul clubs.

Used to love a bit of a listen to Roxy Music in my early 20’s (& ABC @Bevalynne) , cruising in my 1st car with my girlfriend. Must have thought that I was the epitome of cool in my red Mk1 Ford Escort 2-door 😂😇 

Heard “More Than This” in the radio yesterday and was just … … 

Happy Days 😊

Mk1’s and underground soul clubs, very cool @Strutt G and @Antski :sunglasses:. Sounds far better than being driven around in a pimped up Corsa to get to the service station for a McDonalds. 

I’m not sure if that’s something all teenagers did, or if it was specialised to where I’m from. But there was a local service station, that was a very nice one, as service stations go, and it used to be the place to go, you’d bump into everyone down there. Bizarre I know!
