Jermaine Strikes Back

By that, I simply mean that he's being featured here again. ;)

 Definitely looking more King of Pop on this cover!

I guess Michael didn't mind him borrowing the look, as he duets on the first track. The fifth track features The Jacksons and the eighth features Whitney Houston! Not bad!

Buddy's pre-P.C. glory days

 Sorry for the harsh lighting, Buddy. Not my fault. ;)

I would say my earliest memories of Buddy were from The Love Bug. Loved him in it and still love the movies. 

Not the most inspired back cover, but good enough.

Naturally funny is a good way to describe him. A good story teller-type comic. :)

Be sure and look up some of his stuff on YouTube. Some great stuff with Johnny Carson, especially.

...I bought a Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker album. ;)

Back when she was just Tammy, I guess.

Seems she wasn't full-on glam yet. No five pounds of eye makeup. Apparently she controls both of the friends shown on the cover.

 "God's Not Dead"? On a children's album?! That's a bit heavy, don'tcha think? :p

Canuckian choo-choos

So very Canadian! Not only is it Canadian trains, but it's hosted by Pierre "Has Anyone Outside of Canada Ever Heard of Him?" Berton. ;) Just kidding, of course. Well, mostly.

Woo! A gatefold! No picture of the back cover. Can't remember why. Extreme plainness, I guess.

There's a very small chance I may have been on one of those classics from New Brunswick on a touristy-type jaunt, perhaps on a retired freighter. Do you jaunt on trains?

Painted cheesecakery

Bit of a different one this time.

Nice painted cover. Would be especially interesting if that's a real woman and they chose to paint her rather than just putting a picture of her. Sometimes they include both, but no evidence of it in this case. 

Also, 'larriot' stereo? I'm wondering if they misspelled lariat, especially given the subject matter. Hmm...

Aww, they think The Beatles are noise? :-/

Sexy—yet oddly conceived—cover, awkward-looking pose. Great colors!

Not the most inspired back cover, but I like the layout and that they used a color picture rather than the usual cost-saving black and white. Gotta love the huge horn-tooting Pickwick paragraph. :p

Not a horror movie...

...despite it sounding like one.

A heartwarming slaughter. ;) Remember kids, you can't spell slaughter without laughter!

I would say he should widen out, but I suppose he knows what he's doing.

Shout out to Rambo!
