Gotta love the Surf Coasters. This is the 1st cd of theirs i bought. Got it cheap, now it's pretty hard to find & very expensive. Most of their cd's have cool cover pics/art.

Man or Astroman? was my fave band for many years & i first heard them via this album which i bought cuz of the cover art. The store owner described their sound as sci-fi surf intsrol, which it is. Some cool voice overs from '50s sci-fi/horror films throughout their albums. Too bad they disbanded.

The Love Peace & Poetry series comps of psych music from Mexico, Japan, South America, the US, England, Africa. Each has a fantastic cover with the same blonde hippee chick.

I've always been a HUGE fan of Jaime Hernandez's art, so I naturally love this cover.

Death by Chocolate helped create this masterpiece by painting Deb's body in chocolate, and manufacturing the "collar" around her neck.

Oh yeah, they also made all the cakes.

Classic album, classic cover.

Still remember listening to it when it first came out and realising that I liked both kinds of music. Loud and very loud.

i don't know if this counts (because i've only ever seen it as a poster) but it seems like something i should own.



i suppose of those album covers, the black one would be my favourite (dark side of the moon, isn't it? i don't pretend to know anything more about pink floyd than the pretty pretty poster).

and i've also like this for as long as i can remember. in fact, it's one of the very first albums i ever owned. it now exists in several incarnations (one tape, 2 records, and i think a cd) in my house Razz

whispering jack, by john farnham:


and this i just think is neat, plus the album rocks Smile

Dark Side of the Moon is one of those albums that EVERYBODY seemed to own, when it came out. It was in the charts for weeks and weeks and weeks.

I'd grab a copy, if I were you. It's got some great classic tracks on it. You'll have heard of some of them like "Money", which uses sounds of coins at the start of the song.

I avoid listening to The Wall album by Pink Floyd if I can. It's a very depressing scene, as is the movie adaptation. You'll know "Another Brick in the Wall" from that one. I used to roller skate to that song in the 80s. Big Grin

One of my other favourite Floyd albums is Wish You Were Here.

There's also a trick you can do with The Wizard of Oz and Dark Side of the Moon. If you start the record playing as soon as the third bell has finished chiming in the movie, and then turn down the soundtrack, the words and music of the album suit what is happening on screen. So good it's eerie! Eek

ooh, i've heard about the wizard of oz thing. i've been meaning to try it (my mum actually does have the record, but i don't think i've listened to it). funny though, i do have "another brick in the wall" on a number ones compilation, and i have this memory of playing "money" on a juke box in a pub somewhere, because i knew my brother liked the band, heh Smile
