Wackiest record covers at yard sales

Posted by Jenny in Grab Bag | 6 Comments

I’ve been seeing a few collections of the worst, funniest, or most ridiculous LP covers here and there. We’ve certainly encountered our share of gems in the wild, so I thought I’d put together a post of our own.

Grandma likes Jerry Lee Lewis

Both of the quality LPs below are on the GROSS RECORDS label.

Squirreled records

This one Karl pointed out, saying it’s one of his most hated record covers, all because of the dog’s mouth. At first I thought he was crazy, but after staring at it for a while, I started to see what he means.

Most hated record cover

“You Figure It Out!” Okay …

.... You Figure It Out!

We had a comment on our flickr page that I think just might’ve: “drag kings.”

Now, this one is just … baffling.

Tom's Electric #1

There is something unsettling about the intensity on his face. (The guy, not the moose.)

We’ve had several encounters with aerobics-meistress Joannie Greggain. She seems to change her look every so often, but never loses her legwarmers.

Aerobic Shape Up

Aerobic Shape-Up II

Dog and Joanie

Apparently this next one is actually quite the rarity. (Some guy had just purchased it when we got to this sale, but he let us take a picture.)

Nervous Germans

This one is also apparently worth bucks, but I just took a picture and left it behind. Oh well, you can’t win ’em all.


Karl purchased this gem some time ago and was going to guest-blog about it. (I don’t think that is ever going to happen.)


Dig that crazy lipstick!

This one is a CD, but I think it still needs to be in this post …

We'll Pay You $1

And finally, a record I purchased (in exactly this condition) at some thrift store in California back in the ’90s.

America's Greatest Hero

I will probably never listen to this, but I don’t think I will ever part with it.
