Guess the Album

Skip to the bottom

  • @oddbod  Jan 2019

    Thought I'd try this as an idea for a fun game. I think this may be a fairly easy one to start off with but maybe not....
    This is part of a well know album cover. All you have to do is say which one. Whoever guesses correctly - it's your turn next.

  • @nikke88  Jan 2019

    David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars

    If I'm not mistaken.

  • @chasingandromeda  Jan 2019

    You're not mistaken.

  • @oddbod  Jan 2019

    @nikke88 Correct-a-mundo!
    Thought perhaps that one would be a bit easy but it was just an opener.
    Over to you...

  • @nikke88  Jan 2019

    Thanks!

    Let's see if this one is trickier.

  • @nikke88  Jan 2019

    I replaced the original image because I noticed, that is was from single cover and not from the album cover. This one is from album cover. 70's pop, quite a big name in certain scene. Cult figure.

  • @toms  Jan 2019

    I cheated and Googled that one @nikke88 -- the first one was easy. This one I had never heard of. Listening now. Fascinating.

  • @oddbod  Jan 2019

    To be honest, although I'm a fan, I only got this because of your clues about being a cult figure in pop.
    Also (and very weirdly) I'm off to Paris tomorrow and staying at a hotel in Rue de Verneuil which is opposite his house (now owned by his daughter), so he was in my mind.
    I googled his album covers and spotted it. (I'd google quite a few other artists first though). So a lot of luck!

    L'Homme à tête de chou - Serge Gainsbourg

    I think maybe we should stick to albums which perhaps are a little more well known.

  • @nikke88  Jan 2019

    @oddbod Yep, L'Homme à tête de chou - Serge Gainsbourg is the right answer.

    I thought about is it well enough known album or not, but in the end it always leads up to same problem: If it's too easy, finding it doesn't really give thrills and there's no challenge; if it's too unknown, nobody knows it. Maybe this time it was more on "nobody knows it" -side.

    It's difficult to come up with the choice that has right balance on it. Not too clear, but not too hard.

  • @oddbod  Jan 2019

    @nikke88 yep I know what you mean. I'm trying for well known album but make the image crop smaller.
    I can always zoom out a bit if it proves too tough

  • @shortdan  Jan 2019

    Bat Out Of Hell?

  • @silvermachine  Jan 2019

    That's Bat Out Of Hell, mate. I couldn't abide Meatloaf but that cover had stuck in my head like a bat bone in Ozzy's throat.
    Looks like you beat me to it

  • @shortdan  Jan 2019

    Just had a Google now @oddbod, that's right yeah? Is it my turn? 😀👏🏻

  • @shortdan  Jan 2019

    Ok, how about this?

  • @ampersandman  Jan 2019

    @shortdan That's Tubular Bells

  • @shortdan  Jan 2019

    There we go:

  • @shortdan  Jan 2019

    @ampersandman Too easy? Hard to know how hard to make it! Over to you 😊

  • @ampersandman  Jan 2019

    Well, that one is probably too easy as well.

  • @shortdan  Jan 2019

    Rage Against The Machine!

  • @ampersandman  Jan 2019

    That is correct. @shortdan , your turn!

  • @shortdan  Jan 2019

    How about this; a little trickier?

  • @shortdan  Jan 2019

    I'm hoping to be asleep in a few minutes so when someone gets it, please continue!

  • @oddbod  Jan 2019

    @shortdan sorry Dan nipped off for a bit but I see all has moved on anyway. I’m off to bed too

  • @oddbod  Jan 24

    @bradbrubaker You need to post the direct link to the image which includes the file extension - .jpg or .png

  • @erikdidriksen  Jan 24

    Is that Black Sabbath - Paranoid??

  • @bradbrubaker  Jan 24

    @erikdidriksen - It is! You're up.

  • @erikdidriksen  Jan 24

  • @ampersandman  Jan 24

    Bruce Springsteen - Greetings from Asbury Park

  • @ampersandman  Jan 24

  • @shortdan  Jan 24

    @ampersandman Currents by Tame Impala?

  • @shortdan  Jan 24

    Which is weird as I nearly did that very album last time too!

  • @ampersandman  Jan 24

    @shortdan Yes it is!

  • @shortdan  Jan 24

    Ok, another:

  • @silvermachine  Jan 24

    Is that Let it Bleed by the Stones?

  • @shortdan  Jan 24

    Thanks!

    Some stylish clothing.

  • @adforperu  Jan 24

    Funkadelic - One Nation Under a Groove!

    I only know that as I heard it for the first time this year

  • @adforperu  Jan 24

    Next one :

  • @nikke88  Jan 24

    That is great album. I know it, but someone else should answer for a change. 😀

  • @embersofautumn Jan 24

  • @shortdan  Jan 24

    Do we get a clue @adforperu?

  • @pipewrench67  Jan 24

    @adforperu Bitches Brew (hey that rhymes)

  • @adforperu  Jan 24

    Correct @pipewrench67, and extra points for the rhyme! Your go...

  • @pipewrench67  Jan 24

    @adforperu It'll have to wait (at work shhh)

  • @adforperu  Jan 24

    OK, a bonus round while we wait 😀

  • @nancyrost  Jan 24

    Joni Mitchell, Blue.

  • @adforperu  Jan 24

    Correct! @nancyrost's go, and @pipewrench67 can step in when they're back from work 😀

  • @nancyrost  Jan 24

  • @nancyrost  Jan 24

    Maybe the album is too obscure, though the band isn't. If nobody guesses soon I'll post a different one.

  • @pipewrench67  Jan 24

    @nancyrost I know this just seems silly to answer since I can't post to advance the thread. (Cadillac Raincoat)

  • @erikdidriksen  Jan 24

    @embersofautumn's is Simon & Garfunkel's "Wednesday Morning 3 AM." Not sure about @nancyrost's.

  • @silvermachine  Jan 24

    @nancyrost That is a Fleetwood Mac album but I don't know which one?

  • @nancyrost  Jan 24

    It's "Mystery to Me", and that's close enough for me, @silvermachine. Your turn.

  • @silvermachine  Jan 24

    Too easy?

  • @adforperu  Jan 24

    Trout Mask Replica! I'd recognise that lapel anywhere (also, when I did my first cover in here, it was either going to be Bitches Brew or TMR!)

    Yeah I was hoping you'd think it was a bit of carpet!

  • @oddbod  Jan 24

    VS?

  • @iwilleatyou Jan 24

    I can't. I'm on an old browser and none of the image sites work (outdated flash). I just tried a couple. So if you will be so kind....
    Do the Magical Mystery Tour cover. Make it really really difficult so no one can figure it out.

  • @iwilleatyou Jan 24

    Ah, I see no talent Oddbod figured it out too. Oddbod? care to fill in for moi?

  • @oddbod  Jan 24

    That wasn’t a late guess. I just don’t know know what that means

  • @shortdan  Jan 24

    Ok bonus one from me then:

  • @iwilleatyou Jan 24

    Pearl Jam's second album is called VS.

  • @oddbod  Jan 24

    @iwilleatyou ah okay ta

  • @oddbod  Jan 24

  • @oddbod  Jan 25

    I don’t recognise this and my detective work has failed so far.
    Can’t make out for sure what I’m looking at. Looks like part of black and white photo at night of some people but Im no doubt misinterpreting

  • @seemanski  Jan 25

    Yep, I'm at a loss. I tried googling black and white album covers and came up empty. It kind of looks like a carving of a band in a tree on something but I have no idea what it is.

  • @adforperu  Jan 25

    I feel like I recognise it but I can't quite place it

  • @erikdidriksen  Jan 25

    Peter Gabriel's s/t, aka "Melt"

  • @adforperu  Jan 25

    I cheated and found it 😀 Turns out I don't recognise that cover! But I'll give someone else a chance

  • @adforperu  Jan 25

    Oh, well played Erik

  • @erikdidriksen  Jan 25

  • @oddbod  Jan 25

    The stupid thing is I was searching album covers of @pipewrench67 ’s influences so i must’ve seen that cover and still failed to spot it ....derrr

  • @oddbod  Jan 25

    Didn’t recognise this (never been a Dylan fan). Tried googling “motorcycle album covers” but no joy. Then as a long shot I thought I’d try googling just “orcycl” and surprisingly it came up.

    @silvermachine , yes, that is correct. Sorry guys. Why is the photo not working?

  • @silvermachine  Jan 25

    I see a white square with a tiny dot in the middle which when I enlarge it turns out to be Bono's ego.

  • @mikeskliar  Jan 25

    sorry, don't know that one, above, tho many of the previous ones I did know (not all of them tho). So i have no idea how to a-crop a photo to get just a little bit of it and b-upload to this thread. (otherwise maybe i'd put something in there, tho

  • @shortdan  Jan 25

    Björk - Vulnicura

  • @nancyrost  Jan 25

    @mikeskliar you should be able to crop it in Paint or whatever the Mac equivalent is. You have Flickr so you can upload it there and then just post the .jpg link to this thread.

  • @oddbod  Jan 25

    @shortdan Its a great album.

  • @shortdan  Jan 25

    Entroducing by DJ Shadow!

  • @frenchcricket  Jan 25

    an absolute classic

  • @shortdan  Jan 25

    It is indeed! Ok, another:

  • @miltz  Jan 26

  • @nancyrost  Jan 26

    @miltz you should go ahead and post one.

  • @miltz  Jan 26

  • @toms  Jan 26

    Oh that one is easy. 😀

  • @toms  Jan 26

    Well, easy in the sense that I think it's the 2nd greatest album of all time, and I was just listening to it about 3 hours ago. 😀

  • @nancyrost  Jan 26

    Ah, that was a big hint. The Replacements, "Tim".

  • @miltz  Jan 26

    That's the one.

  • @oddbod  Jan 26

    After a lot of googling possible descriptive terms I’ve got zilch, so I gave up and resorted to cheating with a reverse image search. This came up with a painting by an artist I’ve never heard of - Peasant Woman by Kazimir Malevich
    But my further googling has failed to find any link with this painting to any album cover. So I’m completely stumped

  • @pipewrench67  Jan 26

    I've got nothing either, although Malevich may (or may not) lead us to Russia or Poland.

    I cheated 😔. Tough one

    Is that R.E.M. - Murmur?

  • @shortdan  Jan 26

    Just checked - it is! 😊

  • @shortdan  Jan 26

  • @oddbod  Jan 26

    That reminds me a bit of 13 by Blur but you wouldn’t be that sneaky would you?

  • @adforperu  Jan 26

    That was my first thought, it's also incredibly close to being Alice Coltrane's Journey in Satchidananda - it's got the hair and colour scheme!

  • @adforperu  Jan 26

    Well after racking my brain for orange albums, I've discovered it's Low! The black bottom right is a riiiiiiight ol' red herring!

  • @thelowestbitter  Jan 26

    Low, Bowie. That collar is very distinctive

  • @shortdan  Jan 26

    Haha, well done @adforperu. Is have been super disappointed in you if you'd not got that one 😉

  • @thelowestbitter  Jan 26

    Damnit, @adforperu got there just before me but I knew it on sight and he apparently took 6 minutes so we all know who the real winner is here (me)

  • @shortdan  Jan 26

    Haha! I actually thought it might prove a bit more difficult. Like Ad said, that black bit in the bottom right corner (which I'd never noticed before) can send you down a totally different path!

  • @oddbod  Jan 26

    I didn’t think low was that vividly orange!

  • @adforperu  Jan 26

    Haha fair point @thelowestbitter. Here's a quick one but feel free to do yours too!

  • @shortdan  Jan 26

    😂

  • @judypie  Jan 26

  • @burrsettles  Jan 27

    @miltz fugazi, repeater.

    here's a pretty obscure one, although i know a few fawmers personally who should be able to get it:

  • @sapient  Jan 27

    Oops. Sorry, folks... Saturday night intervened and I missed my turn 😜
    Glad you carried on. I'm loving the challenge of this thread!

    I do have one ready to go, so I'm back in the game 😁

  • @ampersandman  Jan 27

    @burrsettles Can't name the album, but is it one by Flaming Lips?

  • @oddbod  Jan 27

    @ampersandman no Flaming Lips album I recognise.
    I'm still holding out in the hope that inspiration will strike as to what the pink thing is part of...I'm not confident though

  • @sapient  Jan 27

    Looks to me like a cartoon rabbit... Not that that seems to help much! Hmm...

  • @adforperu  Jan 27

    Or some kind of gummy bear. Hmmmm. My mind went to Flaming Lips too

  • @burrsettles  Jan 27

    @ampersandman not flaming lips. @sapient is on the right track thinking bunnies, and @adforperu isn't too far off with gummy bears either. it's maybe too obscure... if no one has it by this afternoon i'll hand over the baton...

  • @oddbod  Jan 27

    Got it

    ha ha ha

  • @oddbod  Jan 27

    okay, so I figured out the bunny maybe a "Peep" - some sort of marshmallow candy? (never seen one before but probably don't get them in the UK). Despite my best googling efforts I still can't find the connection with one of those to an album cover.

  • @sapient  Jan 27

    @oddbod - genius! 😁

  • @adforperu  Jan 27

    @burrsettles for the love of god, put us out of our misery, please! 😁

  • @pipewrench67  Jan 27

    I got that it's a peep (they are horrible, so if you don't have them, where you are, you are missing nothing) but I got no further.

  • @nancyrost  Jan 27

    @sapient I think you should go ahead!

  • @judypie  Jan 27

    I GOT IT! PEEPSWORLD BY THE PEEPSTERS!!

  • @adforperu  Jan 27

    ahahaha! ffs

  • @adforperu  Jan 27

    I found it too

  • @judypie  Jan 27

    I hate those fecking peeps. Whatever the feck they even are.

  • @oddbod  Jan 27

    FFS - I never knew what a Peep was before today and now I hate them.

    @sapient, anyone - GO!

  • @sapient  Jan 27

    Ok. Let me try something that I hope is a little easier! (sorry @burrsettles - you will tell us what the heck that was though, right? 🤔)

  • @adforperu  Jan 27

    Metallica's Ride the Lightning? m/

  • @sapient  Jan 27

    Ah, too easy eh @adforperu?
    Well done! 😁

  • @adforperu  Jan 27

    Bah, I forgot that FAWM won't post a backslash! OK, next one...

  • @silvermachine  Jan 27

    Tom Waits bone machine?

  • @sw1n3flu  Jan 27

    looks like it to me!

  • @sapient  Jan 27

    Woah! Lady Sapient has just cracked the @burrsettles enigma!
    It's Poor Old Lu - Sin

  • @silvermachine  Jan 27

    Pretty certain that's Bone Machine, so here's annuver one.
    [img][/img]

  • @seemanski  Jan 27

    @silvermachine I think that is Mars Volta - Deloused in the Comatorium

  • @silvermachine  Jan 27

    You got it mate.

  • @seemanski  Jan 27



    Might be tricky but then again it might not

  • @ampersandman  Jan 27

    Woah @sapient
    Excellent job! Never ever heard of that album or band.

  • @burrsettles  Jan 28

    @seemanski — is that "sound awake" by karnivool?

    sorry lost track of time, and i'm sorry if i blocked up the works. mine (the peep bunny) was "sin" by the band "poor old lu." 1994. [EDIT: i see now that lady @sapient got it!!!]

    maybe this one will be easier:

  • @airbagtester  Jan 28

    Janet Jackson - The Velvet Rope

  • @airbagtester  Jan 28

  • @burrsettles  Jan 28

    @airbagtester beatles white album! nice crop job. 😉

  • @resonut123 Jan 28

    Bad Brains - I against I.
    Killer album.

  • @bradbrubaker  Jan 28

    Hi @resonut123. The ink said "Content not found" for me.

  • @resonut123 Jan 28

    Having hard time getting pic link from my phone & Soundclick (used to be easy), will try my laptop now.

  • @resonut123 Jan 28

    Maybe this might work? Might be too easy (if it does show)?

  • @sapient  Jan 28

    @ampersandman - me neither! Her abilities with Google are superhuman 😉

  • @seemanski  Jan 28

    Sorry fell asleep yes @burrsettles that was it

  • @oddbod  Jan 28

    okay, I couldn't crack this one, so I cheated.
    Here's a clue to see if someone else can get it -

    The location of the image has a connection with a very well know film-noir Hollywood movie

  • @adforperu  Jan 28

    Afraid I couldn't get it without cheating either! Sweet choice, though.

  • @resonut123 Jan 28

    Another clue...
    Band is a British Power Pop/Glam band that starts with "S" (nope, not Slade).

  • @bradbrubaker  Jan 28

    The Sweet - Desolation Boulevard

  • @resonut123 Jan 28

    Yes, @bradbrubaker

  • @silvermachine  Jan 28

    I remember 'em well. Did they actually dress like that around Glasgow or was it just for Top of The Pops? Brave men.

  • @bradbrubaker  Jan 28

  • @bradbrubaker  Jan 29

    Hint: 1989 underground classic

  • @oddbod  Jan 29

    @bradbrubaker how far underground?

  • @bradbrubaker  Jan 29

    Not too far. Massively influential.

  • @oddbod  Jan 29

    Energy by Operation Ivy
    Only got this because of your clues.
    Can’t say I’ve heard of this album or band before.

  • @oddbod  Jan 29

    I’ve been mean with the crop but everyone should know the album

  • @sapient  Jan 29

    That's Saturday Night Fever by the Bee Gees, right @oddbod?

  • @oddbod  Jan 29

    @sapient well spotted Pete..it's all yours

  • @sapient  Jan 29

    It was the disco lights that gave it away.
    Hmm, what can i do that might actually be something that people know?
    Oh, I've got it
    It's been impossible to make a decent snip that Google doesn't recognise, so I hope it's enough of a challenge. It's (I hope) well known, from a while ago, and it's not metal:

  • @sph  Jan 29

    First guess: Jimi Hendrix Experience - Axis bold as love

  • @oddbod  Jan 29

    My immediate though was Live Through This by Hole but it’s not

  • @oddbod  Jan 29

    @sapient mrs oddbod got this one
    Adam & The Ants - Kings of the Wild Frontier

  • @sapient  Jan 29

    @sph and @oddbod I see where you are both coming from with those! But no... 😉

  • @sapient  Jan 29

    Aha! That's it @oddbod !
    Crossed posts... Well done her! 😃

  • @sph  Jan 29

    I should have recognized the dandy highwayman...

  • @oddbod  Jan 29

  • @adforperu  Jan 29

    I believe the rule now is that Mrs @oddbod has to sign up, write and record 14 songs, and play the next album cover game, or else we get stuck in a time continuum.

  • @oddbod  Jan 29

    @sapient she picked up that was a brocaded coat

    @adforperu wild horses couldn't drag her...
    although maybe if there was some sort of cake inducement

  • @adforperu  Jan 29

    I feel like it's a 70s funk or soul album of some kind for some reason, or maybe I'm waaaaaay off the mark

  • @oddbod  Jan 29

    @adforperu it's more likely to contain a sample from a 70s funk soul album
    - perhaps I should reveal a little more picture

  • @adforperu  Jan 29

    Hmm, maybe. Racking my brain for hip-hop albums that could be right..

  • @oddbod  Jan 29

    Not hip-hop

  • @adforperu  Jan 29

    Oh, duh. Yeah let's have a zoom out please!

  • @oddbod  Jan 29

    Cant edit the original post - try this montage

  • @sailingmagpie  Jan 29

    I know the answer but am at work, so won't be able to post the next in the chain, so I'll let someone else have a go. Great album though.

  • @shortdan  Jan 29

    I've been checking out covers for prominent country singers but now I've just read that it might contain samples so I should probably stop wasting my time right? Ha!

  • @shortdan  Jan 29

    Please @sailingmagpie, put us out of our misery - I'll happily post a cover on your behalf!

  • @sailingmagpie  Jan 29

    Okay, it's Exit Planet Dust by The Chemical Brothers. I nominate @shortdan

  • @shortdan  Jan 29

    Yay!

  • @sailingmagpie  Jan 29

    Ha, I immediately know that one as well!

  • @shortdan  Jan 29

    Haha, I knew I should have clipped more of that top left detail!!

  • @metalfoot  Jan 29

    Is that Harvest by Neil Young?

  • @shortdan  Jan 29

    @metalfoot It is! Your turn 😊

  • @metalfoot  Jan 29

  • @ampersandman  Jan 29

    Is that Republic by New Order?

  • @metalfoot  Jan 29

    Nope!

  • @metalfoot  Jan 29

    I can give a hint if nobody figures it out in the next few hours...
    Hint: It's a Canadian band

  • @silvermachine  Jan 29

    Blue Rodeo - Five Days in July? Sorry mate never heard of 'em.

  • @silvermachine  Jan 29

    Is this easy or is this hard?
    [img][/img]

  • @oddbod  Jan 30

    Hard for me
    Anyone else?

  • @adforperu  Jan 30

    Yeah, i've no idea on that one!

  • @silvermachine  Jan 30

    Another bit from same album.
    [img][/img]

  • @oddbod  Jan 30

    That looks like Magnum (Tom Selleck) - did he ever release an album 😉
    got a year?

  • @silvermachine  Jan 30

    Ha I dunno who that geezer is. He could be in the band they did introduce a new guy for this classic album from 1970.
    Here's another bit from the cover. Sorry to torment you.
    [img][/img]

  • @oddbod  Jan 30

    Finally found it...
    Lick My Decals Off Baby by Captain Beefheart

  • @fuzzy  Jan 30

    Brilliant album, @silvermachine!
    (But you knew I'd say that, right?)

  • @oddbod  Jan 30

  • @silvermachine  Jan 30

    That looks a bit like Pretzel Logic ..Steely Dan?

    So whos' the guy on the stairs in the Lick My Decals cover? @fuzzy

  • @adforperu  Jan 30

    Damnit, I wanted to say Captain Beefheart after the second picture, doh!

  • @oddbod  Jan 30

    @silvermachine no it's Telly Savalas with a hat on....
    .
    .
    .
    .
    ..
    .

    .
    ..

    oh alright , it is Pretzel Logic

  • @silvermachine  Jan 30

    Somebody else want a go? I'm supposed to be laying a carpet.

  • @ianuarius  Jan 30

    I could go... hold on a sec

  • @adforperu  Jan 30

    Go on then, since I'm here.. 😀

  • @adforperu  Jan 30

    Sorry @ianuarius, you go as well!

  • @judypie  Jan 30

    st Vincent! masseducation! But yeah, I'm at work so you go Ianaurius!

  • @fuzzy  Jan 30

    @silvermachine, that looks like percussionist Art Tripp to me, AKA Ed Marimba. He now works as a chiropractor.

  • @toms  Jan 30

    Goodness, @ianuarius I haven't encountered Winn Well equipment since I was a squirt and the White House was occupied by a crook! 😀

  • @ianuarius  Jan 30

    @toms Heh, I didn't think this would be too hard, but googling the band myself, I couldn't find too much info about it... so... maybe it's a bit too obscure.

  • @shortdan  Jan 30

    Aaaaaaactually @judypie, sorry to be an album cover pedant but that's wrong! That's the cover for Masseduction. Masseducation (the stripped down version of Masseduction that came out last year) has a very different cover 😜

  • @shortdan  Jan 30

    This is the Masseducation cover:

  • @adforperu  Jan 30

    Hmm... is that St Vincent's MassEducation?

  • @shortdan  Jan 30

    Can we have a clue @ianuarius?

  • @shortdan  Jan 30

    @adforperu 😆

  • @ianuarius  Jan 30

    @shortdan Based on their name, I don't think they went to a journalist school.

  • @judypie  Jan 30

    @shortdan Get out pedant.

  • @ianuarius  Jan 30

    Ok so it's an album by Yournalist. Somebody pick up after my failed attempt. 😁

  • @shortdan  Jan 30

    Horror & Terror.

    Never heard of them I must confess!

  • @shortdan  Jan 30

    Ok, probably a bit easier this one!

  • @ianuarius  Jan 30

    Heh, I know exactly two pics in this whole thread. The Metallica and the Zep. The rest are just like... what I don't even. 😁 😁 😁

  • @debrandio Jan 30

    REM Monster

  • @apertome  Jan 30

    @debrandio Bingo! Over to you.

  • @debrandio Jan 30

  • @oddbod  Jan 30

    Abandoned Luncheonette - Hall & Oates

    That one just looks exactly like what it is!

  • @nancyrost  Jan 30

    I knew that looked familiar! What a blast from the past.

  • @debrandio Jan 30

    @oddbod of course, didn't want to make it too hard. Your go...

  • @oddbod  Jan 30

    someone will get this quite quickly I'd imagine

  • @oddbod  Jan 30

    BTW @apertome assuming your post was genuine, you have to guess one correctly before you have a go

  • @shortdan  Jan 30

    Dummy!

  • @oddbod  Jan 30

    @shortdan lemon-squeezy

  • @shortdan  Jan 30

    Let's see if this is any more difficult than my usual offerings!

  • @apertome  Jan 30

    @oddbod oh, I missed that rule. thanks for pointing that out. Yes, my post was genuine. That's not a crop, either ...

  • @debrandio Jan 30

    @shortdan Nirvana Bleach

  • @debrandio Jan 30

  • @debrandio Jan 30

    Hint: This makes me kind of sad that no one knows who this is on the cover art, especially since I'm visiting Texas #texasrocks

  • @miltz  Jan 30

    I cheated a little, though your hint did tell me who the picture was of. Anyway: Sir Douglas Quintet - Mendocino.

  • @debrandio Jan 30

    Yep, the maestro, Doug Sahm.
    Your go @miltz

  • @miltz  Jan 30

  • @bradbrubaker  Jan 30

    Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

  • @bradbrubaker  Jan 30

    @apertome can take my turn and post one. 😀

  • @miltz  Jan 30

    Indeed. Have at it, @bradbrubaker

  • @miltz  Jan 30

    Or, have at it, @apertome

  • @bradbrubaker  Jan 31

    @apertome, was your earlier post Tori Amos - Under the Pink?

  • @adforperu  Jan 31

    Mingus Ah Um

  • @adforperu  Jan 31

    Correct again!

  • @sph  Jan 31

  • @ampersandman  Jan 31

    I think I know it, but I can't quite put my finger on it ... (see what I did there?)

  • @pipewrench67  Jan 31

    Pretty sure I know, but at work so I can't post pictures, don't bring me down.

  • @adforperu  Jan 31

    I'm not going to verify my answer for once.... is it Mars Volta?

  • @sph  Jan 31

    Pretty sure @pipewrench67 is correct. And no, it's not Mars Volta.
    Here's a bigger version

  • @sph  Jan 31

  • @shortdan  Jan 31

    Discovery by ELO?

  • @thelowestbitter  Jan 31

    I’d know that spaceship anywhere...

    ELO - Discovery

  • @thelowestbitter  Jan 31

    Ah just beaten. You win this one @shortdan

  • @shortdan  Jan 31

  • @shortdan  Jan 31

    Aye, it was the spaceship that did it @thelowestbitter. I wasn't sure which album but felt sure it must be ELO!

  • @sph  Jan 31

    Or like Jeff Lynne said "Disco Very"

  • @ampersandman  Jan 31

    @shortdan Going out on a limb … is that „Like Clockwork“ by QOTSA?

  • @shortdan  Jan 31

    Alas @ampersandman, it is not.

  • @shortdan  Jan 31

    I fancy @oddbod to get it instantly if he's around?

  • @oddbod  Jan 31

    Rio Duran Duran

  • @oddbod  Jan 31

    @shortdan read me like book

  • @shortdan  Jan 31

    Haha! Over to you 😊

  • @oddbod  Jan 31

  • @shortdan  Jan 31

    Moon Safari?

  • @shortdan  Jan 31

    Just checked, yay! Bloody love that record.

  • @oddbod  Jan 31

    @shortdan yep - I need to post a difficult one. mine are all too easy

  • @shortdan  Jan 31

    Ok...

  • @thelowestbitter  Jan 31

    Pink Moon - Nick Drake. What an album!

  • @thelowestbitter  Jan 31

    My past ones have apparently all been far too easy so here's a more obscure one

  • @ampersandman  Jan 31

    Ha, I have that one ...
    They Were Wrong So We Drowned by Liars
    (should relisten one of those days)

  • @ampersandman  Jan 31

  • @sueawesome  Jan 31

    that's the cure if I ever saw it

  • @sueawesome  Jan 31

    every time I hear any of their songs, I cry. it has always been that way, still is.

    that and every time I hear love cats it instantly smells and feels like a cold day in january 1989.. likely because I played standing on a beach on repeat because what the hell else do you do when it's freezing outside (still have my vinyl copy I got for xmas the month before)

    my god, I love music

  • @oddbod  Jan 31

    @sueawesome thats clearly correct. That makes it your turn to post if you want to play

  • @sueawesome  Jan 31

  • @sueawesome  Feb 1

    @oddbod that was the most painful 20 digital minutes I have ever had in my life (trying to figure out how to paste an image in this thread) (I laugh now)

    and that's one of my fav albums from him

    let me know if ya'll need hints ; )

  • @oddbod  Feb 1

    @sueawesome sorry about that!

    you certainly got me stumped with that one. Time for a clue maybe..or something

  • @complexissimple Feb 1

    I don't recognize most of these album titles, never mind the pictures. I didn't think my listening habits were THAT out of the ordinary. . .

  • @shortdan  Feb 1

    We're going to need a clue @sueawesome!

  • @sueawesome  Feb 1

    @shortdan @oddbod

    He’s from England, before his solo career he was in a band that formed in Scotland. the bands name included his real name in it.. not like the Allman Brothers Band, more like Hootie and the Blowfish. Not sure if that would help because I wasn’t familiar with the band.. I was obsessed with his solo albums though.
    And sadly.. most people I know have never heard of him (absolutely criminal) maybe because I’m in the states though? I would think you guys have heard of him. The band broke at the end of the 80’s I think and his solo career took off right after.

    he’s amazing

    did I say too much? not enough? let me know

    the gates are opening soon : )

  • @bradbrubaker  Feb 1

    Still don't have it.

  • @adforperu  Feb 2

    I know we're all FAWMing now, but HELP US @Sueawesome! 😀

  • @sueawesome  Feb 2

    @adforperu oops.. I got sucked into writing. : )

    I don’t know what to say without giving it away.. or is this when I just reveal it?

    nah.. make it hard for them, sue.

    the title of that album has 6 words in it (long, huh)

    half of everything on that album has me dancing every time, and I pay for it gladly. so many of the songs have beautiful and mysterious lyrics.. much like a butterfly

    @oddbod @shortdan @bradbrubaker

  • @silvermachine  Feb 2

    Somebody Else Should Have A Go?.

  • @fuzzy  Feb 2

    I know it's not my turn, but how about this?

  • @ianuarius  Feb 2

    @fuzzy I believe it's Gentle Giant Three Friends 😁

    EDIT: Oh, Three Friends had a different cover in different places. Well, the debut album.

  • @sueawesome  Feb 2

    It was Lloyd Cole - Don't Get Weird On Me Babe

  • @ianuarius  Feb 2

    Hopefully a bit easier than my last one...

  • @fuzzy  Feb 2

    Yep, you're right, @ianuarius.

  • @oddbod  Feb 3

    @ianuarius not for me I'm afraid

  • @ianuarius  Feb 3

    That one was a It Bites album.

  • @fuzzy  Feb 3

    At first glance I thought it was Yeti by Amon Düül II, @ianuarius. Almost the same colour.
