"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Beat of the Day

This here was one of the most provocative album covers I remember as a kid. My parents didn’t own this record but I saw it almost everywhere else. Didn’t know–or care–who Herb Albert was, just loved that green, the whipped cream and that girl. It made sex look tasty but fun.

That Herb Alpert album; my two favorite memories of that is that they used to pay that over department store PA systems all day (usually Caldor or Barkers) when I was a wee child as part of what I later found out was their Muzak programming (ughh...), and I was at a garage sale and saw this album, picked it up and gifted it to my friend, who later thanked me profusely just because of the album cover!

I picked up the album for the cover too. Still have it as a matter of fact, I don't think I ever listened to it :)

psst, hey, kid, you wanna buy a really great album with some great cans on the cover?
itunes is dealing Roxy Music's Country Life (a ridiculously good record) for the oddly precise and low cost of $4.49. The cover alone is worth that, kid. Check it out. Sliced Bread, which I'm, in the trenchcoat, wouldn't steer ya into a brickwall.

Sleazoid sales pitch aside, I seriously can't believe that price. Fuggin' great album.

[4] Damn, do what the man says! Country Life is indeed a great platter. "Out of the Blue," "All I Want Is You," "The Thrill of It All" - all great! Can't go wrong with 70s Roxy Music, man.
