Art Directors in Dreamsville

LP Records - Set Sale List -

I almost called this page Vinyl Cheese-O-Rama. At any rate, just browse the list and I think you will get the drift. I do not mean to deprecate any of these albums either for their artwork, content, campiness, schlock quotient, or overall cheese factor, do I? (heh heh). Yet, undeniably, these uncanny albums are in a class by themselves! We can certainly see what the art directors and advertising spin doctors of the day had in mind when they designed LP cover art this way to excite / exploit the potential buyer and enhance sales.
