    The best cover versions ever done with Zeppelin songs? Much fun in these sad times.

    Yeah! I've got a CD copy of this album at the time it was released! Much fun with it!

    Btw, there's also a reggae-esque version of Stairway To Heaven on Frank Zappa's The Best Band you never Heard In Your Life double CD album .

    Best regards!

    Family, Entertainment, 1969, Reprise England, K 44069

    Does humor belong in cover art? Look at the cover art by Alan Aldridge. Look at the cover art by William S. Harvey of The Door's 1967 "Strange Days". About the music of Family's Entertainment: http://www.audioheritage.org/vbullet...l=1#post429339

    True or not true?

    Not true: this accident happened at seven o'clock on a cold and grey Monday morning in Alsdorf, Germany in 1987. Peter and Monika worked at the vinyl pressing machine No.3. That morning they both talked not very much about their wild activities of the previous weekend...
    True: this pressing is not of the usual superb Alsdorf quality we always appreciated. It passed the quality end control without a doubt. But you wouldn't believe it: this one plays quite well until the very end of the last track. German vinyl pressing quality!

    Mike McGear, Same, 1974, WB Germany, WB 56 051

    Plenty of humor on this album by Paul McCartney's brother. As cover artwork shows: Mike is going to break his familial chains. So Paul assigned some bread crumbs to his brother Mike McGear. As member of Merseyside comedian pop group "The Scaffold" ("Lily the pink") he abandoned his real name in favour of his famous Beatle-brother. Purpose? Effect on his career? As kind of redemption Paul, Linda (here solidly united as "McGear") and the Wings produced and played these nice simple songs here. Linda plays the Moog Synthesizer astonishingly well. Outstanding: Brian "Sax" Jones playing superb saxophone tunes. As session musician he once played with Bill Haley and the Comets, The Undertakers and many more. His biography was published in 2018: https://www.briansaxjones.com/Astonishing: with every turn of this LP, it gets better! There is plenty of humor in it! Also involved in this totally crazy album was the "Gysmorchestra" (invented by Lol Cream and Kevin Godley, 10cc) as credited in the liner notes. Hey, this one was totally underrated in 1974! Listen to the beautiful tune "The man who found god on the Moon" B5 with credits for "Buzz Aldrin on Moon"!

    The Scaffold, "Lily The Pink", 1968

    Fooling around in the studio (as usual) for this 1968 No.1 charts hit (in various European countries): The Scaffold (including Paul McCartney's brother Mike McGear) plus Graham Nash, Elton John backing vocals. Jack Bruce, bass. Sheer Liverpool poetry: Lily had invented that dubious "medical compound". The lyrics of this song humorously describe the "efficacious" cures that medical compound has brought about. Sometimes the results were not as beneficial as wished-for...
    The results for "The Scaffold" were overwhelming: over 1 million copies were sold.

    The genius and the policemen

    Booklet of "People, Hell & Angels" LP: look at these two policemen on the left side of the foto. They had the big chance to sit in the first row. Hey, they are sitting. On chairs!!! Comfortable. Look at their faces: they can't believe what they see. And hear...

    Loudon Wainwright III, Album III, 1972, CBS USA, C 31462

    Some kind of strange humor: "Dead Skunk" A1. Not funny: the burnt Gibson Guitar "Red Guitar" A2! Kate is right when she says "You are a fool..."!
