Since I’ve already gotten into a knockdown dragout discussion of the essential integrity of vinyl records with Phil Wise and Jake Brown of the crew, I know this little posting culled from the linkmastas at k10k.net will be of interest to at least two of our frequent readers. One of the points made while the boys had me on the floor in a sleeper hold was that LPs are worth collecting just for the cover art. If that’s the case, then Show and Tell Music (www.showandtellmusic.com) has made having a large and weird record collection that much easier. All you have to do is link to it! Will of Show and Tell has a gallery of all the wildest covers in his record collection arranged by general subject area, and even the most cursory browse through some of the covers will reveal some forgotten gems of the thrift store bins. Will also includes commentary about each album on display, including whether or not the album between the sleeve is any good, which is not always the most important consideration when you’re talking about Evel Knievel’s spoken word album, or Laussmann’s Lousy Loggers Band, or The Plastic Cow Goes Moooooog. If you don’t have time to browse endless thumbnails (a little too tiny for my taste), take one of the theme tours — some of the covers in the Girls section could easily replace Herp Alpert in my Desert Island Discs.
