My buddy Dave over at the Mower Shed asked if we have ever bought an Album based on the Cover.

Indeed we have!

When we were kids, my sister and I used to dance about the Living Room on weekends, with an 1000 piece Jigsaw Puzzle set up, while the Hi-Fi played Andy Williams, Andre Kostelanetz, Dean Martin and Herb Alpert.

But neither of us bought the above pictured album; my Dad did along with several million other guys.

I had a great Herb Alpert album in 1968. I wonder if it was this one. I loved his sound. That was the same summer I listed to Dionne Warwick until I thought I would wear out the needle on the turntable.

I'd buy this one just for the cover. The difference between this one and the Susan Cagle album I found is that I have heard of Herb Alpert, but I'd still buy it in a snap. Hell, I'd even buy a turntable to play the damn thing on!

Oh my God! Mine too and I love it.
I made up dances for each song!

I remember that album. My dad played Herb Alpert all the time and my mom made wedding cakes and catered weddings. I was small enough to ask my dad (with amazement) if that was my mom when they got married.
I remember them both standing in the kitchen laughing ,with tears running out of their eyes.
I guess they thought that was a funny question.
Thanks for bringing back a good memory.

This reminds me of that Ohio Players album cover from the 70's with the woman wearing nothing but a clear plastic fire hose. Very risque for the time.
