Keeping with the Summer theme; here's some more cool records, to help you beat the heat. None of them are rare, but they're all fun Summer type records, except for the Mental As Anything Single; but when I listen to that record, I can't help but think of sitting on a beach with a cool drink watching the waves come in, Enjoy!

Squeeze are a London outfit; that formed in 1974. They originally played under several names, most frequently "Captain Tundlow's Sky Company" or "Skyco", before selecting the band name "Squeeze" after The Velvet Underground's 1973 album.

Here's a more interesting Dickies picture sleeve for Nights in White Satin. I hadn't realized it had been "revised".

Also, one can never go wrong with The Barracudas. Cheers!

Thanks for the sleeve, I believe the KKK sleeve, (as its known) was banned.

teenage paradise, so fantastic. thanks so much for the 7". great rhythm and vocals.

Frank Miller said...

Thanks Zach, glad you like it. Most of the Albertos records are at least entertaining, and you can find them pretty cheap usually.
