Better than The Beatles’ Abbey Road, or the White Album (or Spinal Tap’s “none more black” Smell the Glove), or Zepplin. Or Meat Loaf. Better than all of them. By a wide margin.
My sister, who is ten years older than I am, has great taste in music. Has since she was a teen. Herbie Alpert was a staple. I still love his stuff, especially The Lonely Bull. And a bunch of others. I do, however, remember THIS one coming into the house. I was probably five or so when she bought it. Once, my mother caught me staring at it (I LIKED it, just as I liked Lee Meriwether as Catwoman, I just couldn’t know WHY). She yelled to my sister “Get that away from your brother!”
I mean, how many album covers do you recall so vividly from before you started school? Best album cover EVER. And a great album, too. The lovely lass, by the way, is Dolores Erickson. And it is shaving cream. Apparently they tried whipped cream, but it melted too fast under the photographer’s lights…..
