What?


Anyway, check out this album...

Ah, see what I did there?

Pretty sure a million million times louder than a dropped pin would make your head explode, doc.

I don't often post the full back covers of instructional albums in detail, but I think this one warrants a closer look...

In the end, this almost looks like a fancy ad for Zenith hearing aids. I haven't listened to the album (which I think is still sealed), but I would imagine it's mostly just an expansion on this extremely verbose (textbose?) back cover. (didn't know there were eyeglass hearing aids, by the by!)

Lots of classic Zenith hearing aids here at HearingAidMuseum.com. Interesting site. That great invention has come a long way.

The Partridge Two

I mean Family! ...and the rest. ;)

Super colorful cover—like their bus—and definitely generous to Shirley and David.

There is said bus. Kinda wish it was a real picture of it. Man, that cover from their first album is a far cry from this eye-catcher. Sadly, I do not have said (I said said again) book cover. Maybe Kristina still has it. I'll have to give her a call.

P.S. Though these Partridges were a hit, everyone knows the best Partridge is Alan. ;)

AHA!

K-tel's Circuit Breaker

I dunno why, but I feel it should've been called Circuit Breakerz. But it wasn't.

Simple, but supremely eye-catching cover. :)

No thanks.
(sorry for the blur)

Didn't happen too often, but they'd sometimes advertise upcoming/current albums for artists that appeared on the albums. This is on the bottom left of the back cover.

Not creepy at all

It's not a teen party until [not creepy] Uncle Jerry shows up!

I believe he is charging his lasers.

1957 teens still wanted those songs, apparently.

It should be noted that the previous owner poked his pupils with a pin. Also not creepy.

Kamahl Strikes Back

Way back on March 20, 2011, I posted my first album by Kamahl. I recently found another...

Stylin' and profilin' as always! Dig that scorpion. :)

Making you jealous with his sweet style.

Some nice words of thanks and praise. And once again, more info on Kamahl here. (barely a mention of this Canadian connection there, so I guess this album, and perhaps others printed in Canada, were sort of...localized, y'dig?)

Here's his biggest hit, "The Elephant Song":

Beautiful song, and man, what an awesome voice!
