There are too many to list one favorite. What are your favorites and why?

Images too please.

Here's my first: Los Lobos, The Ride, 2004

It's a simple image of the band walking through the desert. I love the desert, so there's one.
The lighting is beautiful, and the simple act of walking is unpretentious.
If one didn't know better, one could interpret an immigration message there too.....just my imagination?

Well, this one is pretty obvious, and she looks like she's already "primed" for a good time.

Wish You Were Here

Remember, the record album came with a post card of the centerfold of the CD? I kept mine for decades. . . maybe it's still out in the album, who knows. Tried to give all my albums away when we moved to Montana and the dad (MissaP) who was supposed to take them shined. . . so I still have them and they are all in pristine condition. I was kinda anal about them. Used the preener everytime and had a really nice turn table. Blanchard's about to give me his dad's Pioneer. All I have to do is buy a stylus for it. Ahhhh. . . maybe it's a good thing MissaP shined, eh?

Yeah, that's a great one Survival, I think my actual favorite though is the cover of Hendrix - Axis Bold as Love album, or maybe one of these...

Not really a fave, but a ubiquitous album cover when thrift shopping for records. Back when I did that, anyway. Got my own copy, an heirloom from gramps.

Love that King Crimson cover.

Does everything have to turn into a comedy show here?




Can't leave out the good ol' Grateful Dead!
