Yes, but where is he?

Interesting cover, what with the cover subject nowhere to be seen!

No help on the back. *shrug*

Do yourself a favor and look him up on YouTube. He really was as great as they all say!

One for my dumberer blog!

Well, not really, as they did it on purpose...

They're following the standard 'beautiful woman, two cool dudes and one nerd' formula, I see. ;)

 Said beautiful woman again.

 When I searched for a video (this is for the b-side "Strange Boy"), it said...

No, I did not. (P.S. They're called Cold Fish in the U.K)

K-tel's Dumb Ditties

The 24 greatest ones, that is...

I love these fun, pun-laden covers. :)

Hard to imagine an album like this being advertised on TV nowadays, except perhaps on Saturday morning? I don't think I had this one growing up, but definitely had similar ones.

Typical bland back cover, though the reversed lettering gives it a bit more character than the K-tel norm.

Here's a TV ad for it:

Godspells

A couple of different versions I've found...

Now there's an eye-catcher! :) Great, great cover.

Great back cover, too. Is it just me, or is anyone else reminded of Mork from Ork? ;)

Closer info.

Now, let's check the other one...

Hmm, nice image, decent font/logo for Godspell, though the tracks sort of wreck it. Huge lack of impact compared to the first one. Kinda neat that it's a British import, though.

And now for something slightly different...

...a family gospel record with part of the family M.I.A.

Dad and the kids, but where's mom? 

 No answers on the back. A couple of interesting song titles, though: "Someting Happened to Daddy" (he found Jesus, I'm guessing) and "Devil Song" (I'm guessing it's anti-devil).
