That was my thought based on something on the back of this album. Bear with me. :p
Very K-tel-like. I dig it.
And now the back cover...
There's the Fonz-like character...
...and there's his Medic Alert bracelet! :p Poor guy.

No, not this show (I couldn't quite remember the name until I looked it up, but it's close!), but rather, the return of Bob Harrington! (see post immediately before this one)
Blogger sure does wreck pictures sometimes! It wasn't great to begin with, but better than this. (I've since changed it to link offsite, but my sentiment remains) Anyway, Bob sure had some good cover art. Simple and very eye-catching, kinda like K-tel's. Haha.
His fun label again.
If the album is terrifying, why would I want to listen to it? ;) Hey, I didn't know Alabama and New England were that close together!

This cover really jumped out from the rest in the bin...
If eye catching...ness is the number one priority in marketing (is it?), then this is a home run or something!
Nice label, too!
"...the number one cause of divorce today is marriage" Haha! :)
I get the sentiment in that last panel, but it's a bit awkwardly written, no?
Stay tuned for another doozy of a cover from Bob Harrington! :)

In before Motley Crue! (I can't find the umlaut button)
Who does he think he is, Goldie Hawn?
Could've done with more front cover fun. Oh well, this is the K-tel m.o.
Good job, Bill.

I mean losing!
Liners are in?
Kids. What're you gonna do?
Other albums in the Loser series. Oops, I mean...kiddie series?
A well put together package. Not something I'd ever use for a child, but still nice.

...some Merrill Womach!
Not his legendary album, but this'll do for now.
Some more womach albums available at the time. Let's get a better look at a couple of them...
There's the legendary cover! If you haven't seen the video, I've included it below. Not really my kind of music, per se, but no denying the power of his voice! Wow!
Here's another one. I, uh...think it's a bit much. :p
Here's the video for "Happy Again". :)

...and [the not-as-well-known-but-still-legendary] Les Lye.
One of the few press conferences I'd actually care to listen to! ;)
Over 50 voices. Seriously! Feel free to YouTube him. He was a HUGE celebrity at one time.
You may be thinking 'Les Lye, Les Lye... Why does that name sound familiar? He even looks a little familiar...'
Want a hint? ;)

Yet another of the 'there must be a better way to do this!' records...
Dat's a small typewriter!
Feels like I've done this before.
Obligatory instruction book so you can frf ded with the best of them!

I love how 'of its time' this one is...
Bay City Rollers gatefold cover. Fine.
Gatefold interior, of course. Fine. But what's that on the left?

I always enjoy finding Muppets albums. So vibrant! Shame about the damage, though.
Interesting tracklist. Who is that on the right?!
I saw this and thought 'early Rowlf? Prototype Rowlf?' I looked up some pics and he has always looked pretty much the same, which isn't this. No idea... Perhaps the dog from "Dog Walk"? Anyone know?

A dance party, that is! Woo!
I wanna hear Basin Street Blues. Oh wait, I suppose I could just listen to it...
Would you buy a used car from this man?

...with the ladies!
This is one of those 'sex sells' covers, right?
Not much info on them, but here's a review for the album. Really paints them as an 'also ran.' :p

...but the cover (and spine!) tell us absolutely nothing!
Ah, I see [Michael] Scott Paper [Company] Limited is using sex[iness] to sell their products again. (wish it would've been Pam! Haha.)

Pretty sharp. Check out the bassist's shoes!
Work it, honey!
More polyester than you can shake a stick at! That trumpet trio is pretty cool.

Lots to see in this one, and it's not all pretty.
Yeah, it's not for me, as the title of this post alludes to. (or maybe the you means you, not me, so in that case, make up your own mind! Haha.)
I find that worrisome...
Remember Dharmamark and Greg?
A product of the "acid" generation? Shocker!
Handy. I suggest turning the volume knob all the way to the left.
[also] How to use this recording:
1. Dharmamark prefers to wear either nothing or bicycle shorts and nothing else.
2. Find a quiet place where your farts will achieve maximum volume.
3. Eat first so you fart more.
4. Play it once, then never again. (hey, let's be honest here)
5. If you are straining, you are not doing Yoga, but instead building muscle. not appropriate for that "acid" generation look.
6. But don't smile too much, of course!
Ooo, it gots a built-in instruction booklet!
