Yes it is! I hate the vast majority of Tina's catalog, but this album is great! :)


I remember hearing that incredibly filthy version of "I've Been Loving You Too Long" on the radio quite a bit during the summer of 1971. This was on the same station that received the Mothers' Fillmore East album and immediately put "What's a Girl Like You Doing in a Place Like This" on the air.

I love hearing this kinda stuff. Radio is rarely so cool.

^ And now it's my turn to get a title wrong; of course I meant "What Kind of Girl Do You Think We Are?"

it's not a competition, take a few swag's, we suspect there's no sanctions for wrong guesses, any attempt might help zero-in on the correct cover



a few hail mary's on google may produce some surprises ... some are really tough, like that fripp character; fuck me

Thanks for the recap--so many of those ring a bell and I'm still racking my not-so-agile mind to identify them (i.e., staring at the spines of my record collection, waiting for the penny to drop).

I didn't mean to imply anything in particular about what it is, that's just a word I chose when looking for a word to refer to what this is, maybe I should have just said I find it too hard to match these close ups period. I haven't really got the time to be searching around on Google for something like this. Doesn't mean I'm not interested at all and that I'm not impressed by some of the guesses. For example that Chunga's one. There are all kinds of things in that fold out that one might find familiar but that distant view of the moon over to one side?

Very cool slime! :)
I had to put the Todd one, if only cuz of the 20 minute per side thread. For OSFA, it was a maybe too easy to put lyrics on, but I thought having it next to Todd might make Something/Anything take a minute longer to figger out. Perhaps not.

It occurs to me that that EXCITING GAS closeup would be on the back of every one of those albums listed on the back of the Mothers one.
