    Needless to say, the mysterious flying object penetrated the defense lines of the guardians of the public moral, flew in the face of the shocked and offended puritans and met stiff resistance from the social conservatives, causing the embarrassed record label to go limp: within weeks from release, ATCO had to je[​IMG]k, er…yank the offensive cover off the market and replace it with a lame, neutered “politically correct” version showing a nondescript, bland photo of the band members (three erect, one sitting) . Call it a real bad case of HARD landing for ATCO records.




    That's amazing info. That album wasd released the last year I was in school and in Australia we only ever had the band photo. Amazing that that photo ever saw the light of day on an album cover.

    Yeah, I can't believe it actually made it to production. Here in Minneapolis we have a head shop/record store called The Electric Fetus. It opened in 1968 in the Cedar/Riverside area of Minneapolis which was basically the Haight/Ashbury of Minneapolis at the time. Had tons of really cool shops. Any way, when the store first opened, they advertised on the radio as they had the lowest record prices in town (about a buck and a half off list price if I remember right) and the announcer would say the word "Electric" followed by a bleep. As time went on, people got used to the name but because of things like that it makes me wonder how this cover ever hit the record shelves back then. Nowadays people wouldn't even give it a second look. Well, they would but it wouldn't be much of a surprise.

    Well, there was that one R.Crumb cover (forget the band), and The Rolling Stones' Sticky Fingers -- both of which were, I remember vividly, extreme WTF moments for an eight year old thumbing through his parents' old record collection.

    Come to think of it, I can't quite picture Sticky Fingers being released these days in all its zippered, interactive glory... :laugh:

    I saw them and instantly thought they were the #664's I have since they seem identical (which are shell), even down to the wider Aberdeen toe, but you have a funky model number so I have no clue man. [​IMG]

    Lol. I have ONE truly vintage Guns 'n' Roses Appetite for Destruction 50 / 50 cotton / poly concert tee that is paper thin. My wife made me wrap it up and store at my mom's house with some other cool stuff so that if we ever decide to have kids, they can "discover" how badass we used to be. [​IMG]

    Damn. Really! Blind Faith was the first rock super band. Amazing album. Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, Steve Winwood and fourth member slips my memory for now. Def go back and get it. I have the 2 CD deluxe limited edition set with original artwork and unreleased jam out tracks. I could listen to it on repeat for days straight. I bought it on eBay, burned 2 copies and tried to resell it. eBay kept bumping it for the cover...even if I didn't show a photo of it. They said I had to list it in the adult section. I still have it. I repeat..... GO BACK AND GET IT!!!

    Does anyone have a good amount of knowledge regarding vintage (80's-90's) high designer menswear (Bijan, Pucci, Hermes)?

    If so, and you don't mind giving me some advice, pm me.

    ^^Anything Pucci, Hermes or Bijan would bring in some big bucks, regardless of age IMO.


    Probably Cheap Thrills by Janis Joplin with Big Brother & the Holding Company (another excellent album).

    Yes, Blind Faith is a must-have record. This is actually somewhat painful, "who/what is Blind faith," "that Crumb cover, can't recall the band." Arghh.

    My appreciation of Eric Clapton begins and ends with Cream-Disraeli Gears. My dad played enough of this music throughout my childhood that I'm over it. The Yardbirds only got better once he left and his later solo stuff is pure dad rock blah.
