More album covers

Sander's dog, Einstein

After thinking of all those striking, thought-provoking and inspiring album covers, I couldn’t resist setting aside some space for the very worst ones. Thanks for twisting my arm, Jeremy.

But before you send in lists of your most loathed cover art (no more than ten true shockers, please), here’s Sander’s beautiful dog, Einstein.

Glad to see that he likes your backstage pass from Gdańsk, Sander. It looks really good on him.

More photos of your pets to follow this week, so, if you have one to share, please do get it online and let us know where we can find it.

Bidding on the (Mexican) Fender Stratocaster – hand-painted by Gerald Scarfe and signed by David, Nick Mason, Roger Waters and Richard Wright – currently stands at £16,000.

The auction closes on Friday at the new time of 17:00 (UK). Proceeds will benefit the UK charity for the homeless, Crisis.

66 thoughts on “More album covers”

  1. I’m listing only three and please put your shades on when looking at them:

    Blood Sugar Sec Magik – Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Fly On The Wall – AC/DC
    Gettin Down With – Johnny Guitar Watson

    Best regards,

  2. Perhaps the worst album covers ever:

    Yes “Tormato”
    ELP “Love Beach”
    Beatles “White Album”
    Phil Collins (all his albums)
    Yes “Big Generator”
    Floyd “Final Cut”

    And, don’t get out your pointy sticks, but I have to include…

    David Gilmour “About Face” (because it shows David trying to be tough and rebellious, when he’s not.)

    [I had to stop reading after “Phil Collins (all his albums)” because I was laughing too much. What did you say? Oh yes, Phil Collins. I agree. Let’s not talk about the music. – FEd]

  3. We could just end with New York Dan’s post, subject covered.

    [We could, but he neglected to mention anything by Abba or The Alan Parsons Project. Besides, I can see this one going down the ‘so bad, it’s good’ route. In which case, google “Dickie Harrell – Drums and More Drums” right away. That will take some beating, pardon the pun. – FEd]

  4. There’s a tie between two of what I think are the all time best/worst covers ever (based on which ones make me laugh the hardest):

    Joyce (Joyce Drake)
    Ken – By Request Only

    Dishonorable mentions:

    The Rolling Stones – Dirty Work (I’m sorry, but that cover hurts my eyes)
    All of Def Leppard’s albums
    The Beatles – Magical Mystery Tour
    Pink Floyd – The Final Cut (blasé)
    Most of E.L.O.’s albums
    Rush – Rush (looks more like a label for a can of soda or something)

    And one more cover. I’ve never heard or even heard of this artist until not too long ago, but when I first saw this one, it made me gasp in horror: Norberto de Freitas.

    [Good God, there are some genuine frights among that lot. – FEd]

  5. […google “Dickie Harrell – Drums and More Drums” right away. That will take some beating, pardon the pun. – FEd]

    That’s just shocking, Fed…good call!

    It’s not in a certain Mr Mason’s collection?

  6. The title, associated to the cover, just frightening (at least for me):

    ‘Born Again’ – Black Sabbath.

    Hi from Bormes Les Mimosas…

    Michèle

    [On holiday again, I see. Teachers and their holidays… – FEd]

  7. FEd,

    I am going to have to disagree with you. If this is strictly about album art and not music, the cover to the Alan Parsons Project album “Try Anything Once” is great.

    [Quite right, fair point. I was thinking of the best-of, which is… blue. – FEd]

  8. Re: Dickie Harrell – Drums and More Drums

    Oh my…

    That is truly a gem FEd.

    [I wonder how many young children, innocently looking for their favourite Mother Goose record, have been scarred for life by it. – FEd]

  9. Now this is a category to have some fun with…

    Okay…here goes my list – you might want to sit down or put on sunglasses before actually looking at some of these:

    David Hasselhoff: Night Rocker
    Bee Gees: Life in a Tin Can
    Jermaine Jackson: My Name is Jermaine
    Rob & Fab: Rob & Fab
    Michael Bolton: Everybody’s Crazy
    William Hung: Hung for the Holidays
    Millie Jackson: Back to the S..t!
    A Flock of Seagulls: Dreams Come True
    Fabio: Fabio After Dark

    And the #1 (drum roll please)…

    David Cassidy: The Higher They Climb, The Harder They Fall

    I can’t believe I left some Prince classics out…but I did.

    Have a great day!

    [I agree that Prince’s covers are pretty naff. The Hoff is on my list, but I can’t believe I forgot the Bee Gees (check out ‘Cucumber Castle’, for example). – FEd]

  10. The album covers that I didn’t like were the ‘Hot Hits’ series of LPs you got from places like Woolworths.

    Basically, for those that don’t remember them, they came out every couple of months and they were tacky covers of chart hits. The series, I think, ran through the 70s.

    Each album had a scantily clad lady. Well, I suppose you had to sell rubbish cover versions somehow.

    By the way, the dog in the photo looks remarkably like ours (well, my daughter’s, actually).

  11. 1) The Who – It’s Hard
    2) Deep Purple – Deepest Purple
    3) Pink Floyd – Pulse
    4) Robin Trower – Live
    5) Dire Straits – On Every Street
    6) Blind Melon – self titled LP
    7) Joe Satriani – Flying In a Blue Dream
    8) Jeff Beck – There and Back
    9) Santana – Abraxas
    10) Ken – By Request Only (Google this.. it’s hilarious!)

    Darren

    [Top ‘tache. (Don’t forget Blind Melon’s ‘Soup’: a real waste of spaghetti letters.) – FEd]

  12. Not really thought about it, I have two:

    Vs. by Pearl Jam (I think Roger Waters stole the picture on his last tour for the big screen while playing “Sheep”)

    and

    Fallen by Evanescence Amy Lee is beautiful, but that picture could scare small children.

  13. Man O War – Anthology
    Tino – Por Primera Vez
    Devastatin’ Dave – The Turntable Slave
    The Ritchie Family – Bad Reputation
    Christian Crusaders with Al Davis
    Boned – Up at the Crack
    The Frivolous Five – Sour Cream & Other Delights

    They are some shockers, I have to say I cheated and searched for ‘Worst Album Covers’, but those are my ‘favourites’!

    [No room on your list for ‘God’s Power’ by Mike Crain: Karatist Preacher? (It’s Jim Jones, I’m sure.) – FEd]

  14. Hi FED, you’re from Wales, that’s super. My family history/tree is from there and one day I will check it out.

    Have to give some thought for the worst album cover, on the other hand there must be a reason why such bands would design an album cover that doesn’t appeal to a person.

  15. Fed, I read this on the internet today (click my name).

    Is David thinking of performing? That would be really great! Another trip to London would be nice.

    [Great story. David Beckham on the triangle? Sally Gunnell on tambourine? – FEd]

  16. G’day FEd,

    I only went through my vinyl, I’m guessing that there would be plenty of bad ones on CD, it’s just that they don’t stand out as much.

    1) Making Movies (Dire Straits)
    2) Present Arms (UB40)
    3) Aja (Steely Dan)
    4) Into The Gap (Thompson Twins)
    5) Melissa Etheridge (Self titled)
    6) Hysteria (Def Leppard)
    7) Careful (Motels)
    8) Welcome to the Pleasure Dome (Frankie Goes to Hollywood)
    9) Rebel Yell (Billy Idol)
    10) Not Like Everybody Else (Jimmy and The Boys)

    Thanks for the heads up on Led Zeppelin IV.

    Cheers,
    snow

    [Thompson Twins… The 80s has a lot to answer for. (Was it the law back then to use as much turquoise and pink lettering as possible?) – FEd]

  17. I will have to dig out and dust off my albums before I can really get in on this one. I do remember Fleetwood Mac having a strange album cover with Mick Fleetwood looking very weird. I can’t remember which one it was. He looked like he had on long underwear and a wilder than usual look in his eyes.

    At the time the Beatles’ White Album came out I can remember thinking, what? White? Of course I was just a baby, ha, but now I think it was really a smart idea.

    Sorry, I am not too good on this topic. The memory is one of the first things to go, uh, maybe this is true.

    But I do know a beautiful picture when I see one. Hello Einstein. Sander, he is lovely and looks very content!

    Maybe you will include a picture of your pet this week FEd, with one of his hats on maybe? That would really be nice to see.

    Barbara P

    [Maybe. – FEd]

  18. I’d like to add Echoes, especially the inside photo of the band. Priceless.

    The back of Ummagumma is great too. Showing the instruments is an art in itself.

  19. The worst album covers ever…good question.

    I think it would be for me Metallica’s Load and Reload covers.

    Irene

  20. Hi guys,

    I’ve been on paternity leave for the last 2 weeks so have missed all the fun with album covers, up until now.

    When you mentioned the worst ten it reminded me of something that was doing the rounds on the net a few years ago.

    Feast your eyes (click my name).

    Oh yes, before I forget, we had a little girl, Stella, 10lb 11.5oz (4.9kg). Best day of my short life, I reckon. 🙂

    [Many congratulations, Rob. The three of you will be laughing at home videos of boisterous cats knocking over unsteady toddlers in no time. Enjoy. – FEd]

  21. Sorry fed, but I think these need consideration too (click my name).

    [We have a new candidate for Best Moustache. And is that Terry Wogan on what, I can only assume from the extremely depressing title, is not an up-tempo collection of dance songs? – FEd]

  22. I included this in my “best” list but on reflection it can make it into my worst list too: Faust – The Faust Tapes.

    Others that may have to be hidden when visitors pop round include:

    The Who – Live at Leeds (at the time I thought it was a cheap & nasty cover, I now see it as one of the best live albums ever & not to be hidden from visitors)
    Dare – The Human League ( No! I don’t want you baby)
    Eve – The Alan Parsons Project
    Phil Collins- No Jacket Required (No photo required either)
    Jimi Hendrix – Smash Hits (the first of many, cashing in after his death)

    OFF TOPIC : Fed, I forgot to mention as one of my best album covers “Ogdens Nut Gone Flake” by the Small Faces.

    MORE OFF TOPIC, I hope Arsenal do not suffer a humiliating defeat this evening.

    [Love the Small Faces. Great cover. I’m suddenly worried about Spurs, too. (Liverpool have them on Saturday.) Funny how they could turn it on for Redknapp, but couldn’t – or wouldn’t – for Ramos, don’t you think? – FEd]

  23. Hello FEd,

    I like these “random” topics!

    These are some of the worst covers I’ve ever seen:

    Mike Oldfield – Voyager
    King Crimson – Vrooom
    Jethro Tull – War Child
    Roger Waters – The Pros and Cons Of Hitch Hiking
    Rolling Stones – Dirty Works, as Sarah said in another post.

    I would add to my list two other covers:

    R.E.M. – Up
    Dire Straits – Making Movies

    but I’m not sure. I don’t know if I can say they are really bad, because they simply don’t mean anything to me.

    Maybe I’m wrong, but I think a cover should mean something about the album, it should add something to it or, at least, it should be nice to see on itself…If it’s not so, isn’t it a bad cover?

    Einstein is a really beautiful dog, Sander!

    Ciao,
    Alessandra

    [‘War Child’ is truly awful. – FEd]

  24. Bad covers:

    1 Radio K.A.O.S.
    2 Thriller (it’s a terrible cover, admit it)
    3 The Final Cut

    Oh and speaking of bad covers, I murdered My Way in karaoke last Saturday night.

    Rgds Geoff Duffy ( Dublin )

  25. I know this is cheating because most of these “artists” are unknown, but what the hell, it’s worth a laugh…

    [Wrong. Just so wrong… ‘Swing That Gospel Axe’ indeed. – FEd]

  26. These are so funny, LOL!

    The first one that came to mind was Marilyn Manson’s “Mechanical Animals”. Another rubbish one is “The Great Escape” by Blur.

    I’ll go through all my albums and post more later.

    Einstein’s lovely and congratulations also to Rob on the birth of his baby girl.

    [I know the one. I think Blur ‘borrowed’ those legs from ‘Wish You Were Here’. Probably when they were ‘borrowing’ so much of Pink Floyd’s early sound. – FEd]

  27. A few lame ones to add to the fire include:

    1. YES–Going For The One–great album but a really lame way to waste 3 panels.

    2. Phil Collins–his 1st solo album–we don’t need to see Phil’s face this close, do we?

    3. Roger Waters–Radio KAOS–just dump this cover and save the last track on the album.

    4. Cream–Goodbye–stupid cover and a bad way to end a career. The inside drawing by the late Roger Hane should have been on the outside.

    5. YES–Big Generator–lacked any vision or imagination.

    6. Prince–Lovesexy–gimme a break!!

    7. Kevin Rowland–My Beauty–make an ass of yourself and display it to the world. We all need a laugh anyway!

  28. Best one I can think of which hasn’t been mentioned so far is Disposable Heroes Of Hiphoprisy – (What Will We Do To Become) Famous And Dandy Just Like Amos ‘N’ Andy.

    Also some beauties here, just be careful with number 38 Eugene (click my name).

    [Oh dear. Never mind 38, look at 28: Swedish songsmiths in lilac and turquoise jumpsuits. With boots. I rest my case. – FEd]

  29. OK, I stumbled across this on the internet (click my name).

    FEd, look away … this list just might drive you mad!

    Have a laugh on me,
    Darren

    [Thanks, mate. I’ve been wondering which songs a gay dog might enjoy. From the track listing (at Amazon), now I know… and even poor old Freddie Gage could make some good jokes out of that lot. – FEd]

  30. How about these?

    The Who – Odds & Sods
    Neil Young – Unplugged
    Led Zeppelin II
    Black Sabbath – Paranoid
    Paul McCartney – Give my Regards to Broad Street
    John Lennon and Yoko Ono – Two Virgins
    Rush – Hemispheres
    U2 – Zooropa
    Supergrass – Supergrass
    Limp Bizkit – Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water

    [Good list. John and Yoko went a bit far for my liking and ‘Black Sabbath Vol. 4’ is almost as bad as ‘Paranoid’, I think. Limp Bizkit also win Most Stupid Ever Album Title. – FEd]

  31. [Oh dear. Never mind 38, look at 28: Swedish songsmiths in lilac and turquoise jumpsuits. With boots. I rest my case. – FEd]

    Haaaa! I am dying over here!

    The lists linked by Alex and Peter are hilarious, period.

    Although between Dickie Harrell’s “man-e-arms”, the new, scary keyboardist partner, and The Handsome Beasts’ clASSy album covers, I see many nightmares in my future.

    Pigs, fat naked men, and jumpsuits, oh my!

  32. Let’s start:

    Metallica – St. Anger
    Pink Floyd – The Final Cut
    Simple Plan – all of it!
    Dream Theater – Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence
    Guns N’ Roses – Appetite for Destruction (EUA cover/that one with the bone head of band members, that cover S*%%$!)
    Linkin Park – Meteora (inside is a beautiful artwork, but outside… no comments)
    ManOwar – Anthology (try on Google)
    Queen – The Miracle
    Iron Maiden – Iron Maiden

    and

    David Gilmour – About Face

    Sorry Dave and FEd, but I don’t like this cover! 😀

    [I’m glad you mentioned Queen’s ‘The Miracle’. Not nice. – FEd]

  33. [I’d like to add Echoes, especially the inside photo of the band. Priceless. – Frank Par]

    Always loved that photo. Don’t think it was reproduced for the CD though………..great shame.

  34. I just hate all of the modern stuff by these pop people, with just a picture of them on the cover.

  35. Hi, I’m a huge Pink Floyd fan, both legs are filled with tattoos of the band.

    Anyways, I was wondering if the band is ever going to come out with a DVD of them doing The Wall when they toured. They have them doing The Wall live on CD, but not DVD.

    If you read this Mr. Gilmour is there talk of it? Or if anybody knows?

    Thank You for your time.

    [Sorry, Adam. Apparently the live footage is too grainy, but never say never. – FEd]

  36. Fed,

    The covers I dislike most now are the single sleeve ones where the writing on the spine is very, very small.

    At least double sleeve covers have clearer writing so you can find the album you want without pulling the whole lot out.

    wilko

  37. After perusing some of these offerings, I’m wondering.

    What was so great about the 70s?

  38. The blog postings today are hilarious; I need to get out of the house more and into a record shop. I am going armed with a list of the above posts to look at covers. I need the laughs anyway.

    And scary thought -Ethel Merman Disco? Oh, my poor ears!

    If Mr. D. G. appears at the London Olympics, I am getting my passport renewed!!!!!

    Einstein never looked so good. Darling pic.

  39. Here are some of the worst album covers from my collection:

    Blur – Leisure
    Coldplay – X&Y
    Kings Of Leon – Only The Night
    Creed – Human Clay
    Supergrass – Supergrass

    The worst Pink Floyd cover is “A Saucerful of Secrets”.

    [I liked the ‘Youth and Young Manhood’ cover, though. I thought they were better – that is, their music and their album covers – when they had all that hair. – FEd]

  40. – Led Zeppelin IV: I know it’s a classic album, but…
    – Who’s Next: As above, but why?
    – Rolling Stones, Get Yer Ya Ya’s Out: Not sure about the title either.
    – Pete Townshend, Psychoderelict: everything about this album is confusing.
    – Rod Stewart, nearly everything: Phil Collins take heart. In fact there are many parallels between Rod’s and Phil’s careers and domestic lives.
    – Black Sabbath, Sabotage: Dig the boots.
    – Ozzy, all of em, but especially Speak of the Devil: Even the Devil would have declined this offering.
    – Queen, Hot Space: Perhaps they hoped potential buyers would be deterred by the cover and thus avoid discovering just how far the quality of music by the once majestic Queen had fallen. Off (with) their heads.
    – Scorpions, everything: Isn’t there a law against this and what is it with some heavy metal bands?
    – Boney M, Love For Sale: Oh dear!

    As for Pet Sounds, perhaps the cover was the reason it was a relative failure in the USA upon its release.

    [I share your feelings on ‘Psychoderelict’ completely. Boney M… Dear God. I really don’t want that image ingrained in my brain, thank you very much. I’m still trying to stop thinking which of The Minister’s Quartet – on their ‘Let Me Touch Him’ album – looks least like a paedophile. Where’s that Brillo pad so that I can scrub my eyes for an hour or two before bed? – FEd]

  41. Just to throw a few more serious ones in, some not-great covers:

    Ringo Starr – Goodnight Vienna
    Blodwyn Pig – Ahead Rings Out
    Al Green – Let’s Stay Together
    The Doors – L.A. Woman
    The Kinks – The Village Green Preservation Society
    Pete Townshend – All the Best Cowboys Have Chinese Eyes
    Bob Dylan – Infidels

  42. Today has not been a good day, but after reading the blog I have smiled and laughed my butt off.

    Thanks Fed for having such interesting topics. Made my day!

    [I hope tomorrow will be a better day, Tracy. – FEd]

  43. Warning!!! Not For The Faint Of Heart!!!

    What were these people thinking… What were they on??? ;^))

    So bad it’s good… ;^))X

    [Orion’s is my favourite. How about you? – FEd]

  44. This is a weird cover FED (click my name).

    [One of Storm’s rejected alternatives, isn’t it? – FEd]

  45. Actually I think that the cover of Black Sabbath, Sabatoge is very Rene Magritte – logical surrealism.

    I just look through all those albums and discovered Pat Boone, In a Metal Mood. This is very, very disturbing. What is more disturbing, is that I could actually buy it on amazon.com (not that I would want to……and yet……NO! I will not succumb!) Pat Boone doing Smoke on the Water? With Blackmore on guitar? Yikes!

    Anyway, it’s nice to see Liverpool at the top of the table. Lots of action to come soon, six games in three weeks!

  46. I see people have time on their hands to send in some really horrible album covers. What a laugh most of them are.

    Congrats Rob on your newborn.

  47. hey, i’m taking the fun route this time and after seeing “the frivolous five” above i launched my own internet check with the help of the museum of bad album covers in belfast…just don’t look at some of these right after you eat…i went through a roll of tums.

    bloodhound gang – hefty fine
    the braillettes – our hearts keep singing
    the electric amish – a hard days work
    roadkill junkies – crows on the highway
    ET – best friends
    johnny houston – makin bacon
    all my friends are dead – freddie gage
    redd foxx – you gotta wash your a**
    johnny janot – expose yourself to cajun music
    papa roach – lovehatetragedy

    #1 hefty fine is a gem, look that one up, i’m sure it will make this website’s hall of shame…….

    take care all…….fats

    [Freddie Gage rules. – FEd]

  48. Fed, do you know anything about this?

    Is David thinking about this, would he be interested in doing it? A performance at the Olympics in 2012 would be awesome!

    [As I said the last time I was asked about it, it’s a great story. – FEd]

  49. Not all the Phil Collins covers were bad. Peter Gabriel had his face on all but one proper solo album.

    I’m also a Genesis fan so I’m biased to some of members’ solo careers.

    Yes, Phil’s albums were poppy and had moments but his first two albums are classics (Face Value and Hello I Must Be Going are excellent).

    Every one of Peter’s soundtrack albums were not digestable. I like his rock albums but his soundtracks and world music things are bland. I only liked the first two solo efforts from Mike Rutherford (Mike and the Mechanics was bland) and Tony Banks. Steve Hackett’s solo albums were scattershot.

    Worst album covers has to be:

    – every one of Britney Spears’ album covers (she looks like a damn prostitute and her music… I vomit as I type)
    – any boyband and current pop group’s album sleeve
    – any rapper after 2Pac’s sleeve
    – all of Korn’s sleeves

    [In the interest of fairness and out of respect to Genesis fans, I never liked Peter Gabriel, either. I really have no preference or bias. (Is the Genesis divide as juicy as the Pink Floyd one?) – FEd]

  50. [Is David thinking about this, would he be interested in doing it? A performance at the Olympics in 2012 would be awesome! – Greg]

    I guess if David wanted us to know how he feels about this, there’d be something about it here?

    [You guess right. – FEd]

  51. Dear F.Ed. and Bloggers,

    first of all: how are you? And David Gilmour?

    This is an interesting topic, but as The Mona Lisa of Leonardo is THE painting….the album cover of DSOTM is THE cover…

    I’ve found out this opinion many times everywhere in specialised books, magazines, sites and it’s my opinion too…all the Pink Floyd covers are magnificent and the last one of David Gilmour’s production are very very nice too….

    Ready all for the Halloween night?

    bye/ciao Elisabetta

    [All is well, thank you for asking. I hope the same is true for you and yours. – FEd]

  52. Of course there’s always this classic from Spinal Tap, Smell the Glove alternate cover…

    (I’d post the original, but it’s still a bit racy even if it is satirical).

  53. I’m pretty late the party but I had to think. Also I have the flu.

    Some labels were notorious for producing really crap album covers. Motown in the mid-sixties comes to mind. What was that about?

    But the one that keeps floating before my eyes is the cover of Frampton Comes Alive, which was not on Motown, but is nevertheless crap.

    Why that photo? I mean, that’s awful. He looks as if someone’s just told him his fly is open or has snuck up behind him and poked him in a bad place.

    [Hope you’re feeling better soon, Jill. Al Green’s cover poses make my skin crawl. Great songs, legendary singer, dreadful photos. Peter, Paul & Mary never fail to amuse, particularly this one (click your name). Is it just me, or does Mary have a touch of David Walliams about her? – FEd]

  54. My goodness, those album covers from the links are outrageously funny; and to be honest, most of them are quite painful to look at to say the least.

    What about “Yesterday…and Today” butcher cover by The Beatles. I realize some may consider it priceless and antique, it may even be regarded as an iconic piece by many fans; but in my opinion, it is one of the worst album covers.

    The other one is “In the Court of the Crimson King” by King Crimson. I had nightmares just thinking about it.

  55. thanks frank. 🙂

    i was going to get a small baby grow done up with the live in gdansk cover on it, and on the back ‘it rocks a big one’ but i thought i’d be going a little too far. however having seen the dogs the last few days stand by for the world’s youngest gilmourette.

    and on a separate note, fed, you have to post up smell the glove. what’s wrong with being sexy?

    [The Black Album, as it’s known. – FEd]

  56. [Peter, Paul & Mary never fail to amuse, particularly this one (click your name). Is it just me, or does Mary have a touch of David Walliams about her? – FEd]

    I think she’s in pain because Peter and Paul are clutching her hands soooo tightly to keep her from running away.

    Did she sleep in that blouse?

  57. [Orion’s is my favourite. How about you? – FEd]

    Orion is a good… Something spooky about #2 “Ken”… #18 “Liebe Mutter”.. ??? It’s hard to pick one… All the “albums” have something “good” about them… But Mike Crain “Karatist Preacher” would make a great frisby…

    I was surprised there weren’t any Rolf Harris albums there, though…

    How many of the cats on those covers do you think are murderers or dead etc? The mind boggles… :^))

    [The only thing I know for sure is that Mike Cairn really could be Jim Jones of Jonestown ‘fame’. Run with that, conspiracy theorists. – FEd]

  58. Spooky… That’s exactly what I thought… Great minds and all that… ;^))

    Jim Jones… What was he thinking??? I’ll never understand what his “followers” saw in him…

    If I had to make a choice, I would rather drink strychnine than listen to people like that…

    [I have to say that I found his pre-Jonestown sermons about the “Buzzard God” entertaining, but if you get a chance to listen to his recordings from Guyana, they’re very disturbing. A fascinating character. Hard to believe that it’s the 30th anniversary this year. – FEd]
