The Slice Blog has featured this album cover before. The look these gentlemen were going for is, as you can see, quite remarkable. You could almost call it groovy.
No matter. Their hit, “I Got Rhythm” is one of the all-time earworms.
But I have a question. Why is “Greatest Hits” inside quote marks?
Though perhaps these were considered stylish in their day.
Or maybe, thinking of that one Herb Alpert album, they hid them from you.
Which was better.
Or how about this?
A friend in junior high was so knocked out by this album cover that he subsequently made a short-lived hobby of taking mock album-cover photos. He would gather clothes, props and what have you and then recruit friends to pose as if members of an obscenely successful rock band.
There was no music, of course. Just album-cover art. Talentless teenage boys playing dress-up.
It's almost a certainty that somebody had the deranged notion that this might impress girls. I'm quite sure it didn't.
Still, I'd sure like to see some of the photos he took.
I don't remember if my friend used a dog in any of the pictures. But if he did, I'll bet you anything the pooch was embarrassed for us.
