Next clue...

2 FZ Alumni were featured on this late 60s album, before either Alumnus had played with FZ yet.
Close-Up is from front cover.

Early bird gets the...hey, what do I get? I think you should tally up the score sometime for the most correct picks, RK. I've done ok but Shrewnews has been killing it since the start. Jpfunk was really good too before he got booted.

Yeah, Shrewnews has been outstanding in his field. In this picture, he can't be seen because he is standing even farther out than the guys in the band...

Image

Sometimes, I wonder about what is in his collection. Here is a picture of Questlove hanging out at Shrewnews' listening room...

Image

Of course, that room can't hold all the albums. Items for current listening have to be shipped up from the basement.

Image

Shrewnews - If you do NOT have a huge record collection, then hell, I REALLY don't know how you do it! :)

Who's the user on here that posts the albums he busy? Walker J? He's probably got that size collection.

By the way, this is the best thread on this forum, and has been for a while. IMO, of course.

Agree with calvin. This thread should win an award!

Looking back slime has got a ton of correct answers too. Maybe even giving Shrewnews a run for his money.

LOL! Many thanks for the recognition. I actually keep trying to reduce the size of my vinyl collection, due to living in an unpleasantly cluttered apartment. Also need to make room for stocks of my own next album, which undoubtedly no one will buy. Currently even the Zappa boots that I have been holding onto since the '70s and '80s are trickling onto eBay... :cry:

And yeah, this thread is the best! :D

If you go back to page 8 of this thread, Arkay mentions changing the way he posts the pictures, so you can not google them. Since then, I don't think slime has answered any (could be wrong; didn't check every page-but his answers dropped off significantly).

This is a cool thread even though it's very hard for me without the clues, and still hard with the clues.

Thanx for all the cool comments! Slime has stopped by a couple random times, usually to get several answers correct. He's a good sleuth and I assume he'll eventually be back, once he solves the close-up with Fripp. :wink:

#497 is Chicago VI
#498 is the Ventures, Knock Me Out
#505 is Mahavishnu Orchestra, Birds of Fire

Thought I knew what #499 was, but I was wrong...

#501 is If I Could Only Remember My Name by David Crosby (although on my copy the background is darker than in this image).

Next clue...

This early 80s album is by an FZ Alumnus. As one of the early close-ups, the color is a bit off and the scratches on the surface are highlighted making them look like part of the original image, when they shouldn't. The close-up is from the front cover.
