Not your father's Mickey Mouse

Had no idea what this was, but hey, it looked interesting. Turns out Skin Alley was a British prog rock outfit. Love me some prog, so I was happy. Not as heavy as I might prefer in my prog, but very good. Nice mix of rock, jazz and folk. Singer has a great voice, too!

Cool song titles, all of which you can uh...hear......here:

At long last...

I thought I had posted a Heino album before, but apparently not! Well, here, have one...

I was doing some work at a building where there are a lot of retirees, and I noticed a Heino album at one German couple's place. They were surprised I knew who he was. :p

Abbe Lane is in my ears...

...and in my eyes! Va-va-va-VOOM!

Abbe Lane was married to Cugat for a while. He was also married to Charo! (aaaaaaaaand three other women)(Not at the same time.)

As you can see, the back cover is very similar to the front, not that I'm complaining.

Pre-PMRC

I hear he also gets no regard. ;)

Hard to believe there are 10 years between "I Don't Get No Respect" (1970) and this album. 

Let's get a close look at that warning in the upper right...

This is the sort of thing they did before the PMRC (Parents Music Resource Center) came into being and made Parental Advisory stickers mandatory. I suppose they could still do this, but most companies seem content just putting the sticker on the front, vague though it may be at times.

Legendary Montreal Expo...

...Claude Dupras?!

There he is, uh...not playing baseball! Huh? 

Love the Funny I and Funny II buttons, by the way. ;)

Ah, yes! [echo]"Ladies and gentlemen! Madames et monsieurs! On the electric organ, Claude Dupras! Sur l'orgue électrique, Claude Dupras!"[/echo]

Bit larger picture than usual, but that is such an incredibly cool instrument that it deserves it! It's a Yamaha Electone, but I'm not sure of the exact model.
