Have you got loads of LPs sleeping on the shelf - but no turntable to play them on. One of these album cover frames seems like a good idea.

But which cover would you choose to display?

I love this - and - believe it or not - I actually bought this album before I met the jaaaz fan.

Everyone likes Abba ....don't they?

Are those IKEA meatballs on her plate?

This is for fans of the pun.

Fred hadn't heard about flip flops.

But - have you ever in your life seen anything that is just soooo wrong as this one? And you might spot a certain similarity in the titles of the tracks.

But I've always believed that 'less is more' - so perhaps this is the one for me.

What do you think?

It would definitely be "London Calling" for me....and that New Order one isn't quite minimalist about the Beatles White album (a bit pretentious perhaps).

Did Perry Como really cross-dress to relax? I think we should be told.

Here's mine Kaz.

I do like the Cha Cha bloke with the puppy under his arm though.

The penultimate one is quite something, as is the ABBA one.

My LPs are all in storage 12,000 miles away so I couldn't tell you which one I'd pick but I remember being fond of a classic Donny Osmond number from the mid seventies. Such a nice looking chap and such lovely teeth.

Or maybe Depeche Mode's Speak and Spell?

But what on earth do they sound like?

Prefab Sprout - Steve McQueen
Well, Well Said the Rocking Chair - Dean Friedman
King Of America (or maybe This Years Model) - Elvis Costello
Turnstiles - Billy Joel

But I reserve the right to change my mind as soon as I've hit 'publish'.

I really don't like Abba. Apart from 'Fernando'.

It's got to be the early Roxy Music covers.

Or you could have a triptych starring Tales From Topographic Oceans.

I quite like Hot Buttered Soul, too.

And Never Mind The Bollocks x 4 for when your gran comes round.

I'd quite like to hang the album cover of Bon Jovi's "Slippery When Wet" above our toilet whilst flushing the vinyl down the same...

Blogger KAZ said...

But I wouldn't be able to see it on my white wall in my white cube.
'London Calling' is an excellent image.
I think Perry took his secrets to the grave.

I've always loved that red dress.
Can you dance the cha cha Murph?

12,000 miles! Wow.
Are they on the moon?

I love the swan.

Hello Dotterel:
I checked out your profile - so I know why you chose your name.
Sound like?
I can only speak for Miles, New Order and Abba.
Fred Jammer is and will remain a mystery.

I particularly like 'This Years Model'. Like the Miles one it's a simple strong image.
I was too snooty for Abba first time around - but I always loved 'Winner takes it all'.

I'd say yes to a triptych - but No to Yes.
Definite yes to the Sex Pistols - Iconic.

I always think of 'Slippery when Wet' as a Commodores single.
Great stuff - from the time before they went all soppy.

2:25 pm  
Blogger Rimshot said...

Public Image Limited's "Album" would be an excellent choice!

3:06 pm  
Blogger scarlet-blue said...

Well, I think I ought to go and find out more about Fred and his Jammers...I'm inspired...

I have all 4 of the ones in the top picture and none of the others.

I now feel all of my 106 yeras, thanks for that.

I always had a liking for Jackson Browne's LATE FOR THE SKY........&,yes, Joy Division,but the CLOSER one.

7:29 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Ah yes - PiL - I have a copy of Metal Box.
But unfortunately it's gone rusty.
Otherwise I think it would be worth selling.

I'm off to Amazon as I type.
And tomorrow it's BHS for one of those gingham outfit thingies.

They are all classics - just like you!.

Late for the Sky is a bit Hopperish.
All the Joy Division are great covers.

No, Kaz, they're in Essex!

9:17 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Essex - Now I've heard of that.
But I don't think I've ever been there.

Blogger Roses said...

I'm afraid I only have CDs, the only LPs I possessed were given to me as I entered teenager-hood - Hall and Oats, ELO and Barry Manilow's Greatest Hits.

And I think Barry can soo out-camp Billy May!

Blogger Dave said...

How odd. I too have an LP cover on my blog today. I have one of those record players with a usb cable to convert to digital things, if you'd like to borrow it.

8:02 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

Barry Manilow - Have you no shame woman?
But has Barry got a nice little doggy like that?

You'll be hearing from my solicitors.
But I may change my mind if the turntable arrives before Monday :)

Blogger Roses said...

Me? Shame?

I've done a lot of therapy so I can own my perversions.

Besides, I started my working life off in a pub. Very few people can embarrass me.

6:33 pm  
Blogger Betty said...

I love all the Joy Division and New Order sleeves - anything designed by Peter Saville.

Peter Saville - now there's a dishy man. Sorry, I only ever seem to mention dishy men when I comment on here. It's nothing to do with my hormones. Really.

Blogger nwtrunner said...

Well, I've got boxes and boxes of LPs at my parents house 7,000 km away (which reminds me - gotta get 'em back!), but I'd have to agree with Geoff on the Roxy Music covers and maybe a much younger me would also go with Uriah Heep "Demons and Wizards" or "Magician's Birthday" - it's been a few years since I've seen those. Springsteen is also pretty cool - you gotta love "Born to Run," which reminds me that it's time to go runnin'

5:59 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Ooh I've always fancied abit of therapy. But I did work in a pub, so I guess that counts.

Peter Saville is the god of sleeve design.
And he's even more dishy that Fred Katz - I just posted his picture to encourage you..

Roxy covers were great.
Such a shame they remind you of Brian Ferry who used to be so cool and right on.

Enjoy the run.

Mistress MJ has a wall o' covers that she rotates on a regular basis like an art gallery exhibition but without the crowds of wine and cheese-eating gawkers.

Faves are her Cha-Cha album covers.

I'd like to dress up like the woman on front of the Billy May album cover. Yes, I have been watching Strictly Come Dancing again...

Blogger Mr Coppens said...

New Order's White Album is a little too is Spinal Tap's Smell The Glove.

I'd like to display the montage of the party on the inside of 10cc's How Dare You..
always loved that ..
back in the 70s I stared at it for hours..
HAHA literally hours *wink

8:56 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Sounds great - perhaps we could see a photo sometime.

See comment to mj above :)

Mr C:
I couldn't find the montage scene and I don't remember it - but as long as it made a young man happy.

8:42 am  
Blogger I, like the view said...

ah! so many happy memories

thanks KAZ

(wish I hadn't lost my vinyl some years back)

I cant find a comments-box for today's post!!!!!!!!

PS re:Abba..........They should have done a cover of "We Wont Get Foiled Again"....!

5:37 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Glad you enjoyed it.
I can't play the LPs - but I still like to have them around.

It wasn't really a proper post - so I thought you could comment here - and you did!
I should have added it to the original post in 'Bench' style.

Boom Boom
Wish I'd thought of that for the post.

Catching up. . .

Porcupine (Echo and the Bunnymen)
Metal Box (Public Image)
Led Zep I
Led Zep II
Led Zep III
Led Zep IV - and so on

My ex-H had the Rolling Stones LP: Sticky Fingers. He wouldn't let me handle it though, I kept playing with the zip.

7:39 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

As I mentioned above - my 'Metal Box' has gone a bit rusty. Can I send it back?

I always thought 'Houses of the Holy' was a bit dodgy.

Me too - I couldn't keep my hands away from it.

I have a few vinyl albums but most of mine are 12" singles. From the lot I'd probably pick Kylie - Mixes because it's delightfully pink.

This one is pretty funny though.

I forgot how to create links, or am too lazy to look it up. You take your pick.

7:32 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

You - pick Kylie???
What a surprise.
But that one is cheeky.

Fred Katz & his Jammers, Relaxing with Perry Como and the Abba cover without a doubt!
