That thought had occurred to me too but after closer examination I decided it wasn't.

pbuzby - Jazz Record Mart. Great shop with cool history. Have you been to the new location? I think many people were surprised when the original location closed, but I think no one was surprised when it reopened elsewhere. I gotta make it to the new place one of these days.
Also, were you at the Chester's Gorilla show on Tuesday? Lotsa clams, but fun. 13 people on that tiny Reggie's Music Joint stage.

dove - Sorry, KUIII is correct

JRM, great place. Shopped there often my first few years in the city when I worked in the Loop. Haven't yet been to the new store. No, I wasn't at the Reggie's show.

Next clue...


This is from the front cover of an early 80s album by a Jazz Guitarist. As an aside, White Person told me that the guitarist was from the same area as he was (Eastern USA) and he had occasion to sit and chat with him.

This prog band released this album in the 70s and I think they are still around although its been a couple years since their last album. If anyone here has this album its jpd.

Next clue....
This band and 70s album featured a member from a much more popular band. He wasn't on all the albums, but this album was good enough that some of these songs found their way into the more popular band's setlists.

Next clue....

This instrumental album is credited to a duo, although one musician is more famous than the other. Still, neither are household names. The album is from the mid-80s and the close-up is from the front cover.

OK, then, next clue...

This artist should have been on an FZ album, but wasn't. Close-up is from front cover.

Next clue...

While this album came out more recently than 2000, the material did not. The audio was from the band's heyday, the 80s. I guess the album was never really "released", since it's sorta an unofficial album. Rumors are that the bass player for the band put it out. Dunno if I'd call it a boot, since it is referenced on many websites for the band. Anyway, most fans of the band consider it required listening. Close-up is from the front cover.

There is a Beatles connection with this close-up, which is from the back cover of the album.

Yup. from the top, right, of the front cover.
(and, yes, Arkay, I have a few copies of this.)

^^^Iron Maiden - Maiden Japan

Iron Maiden is the only band I could think of that has a mascot so I just googled Iron Maiden album covers and found it pretty fast.

This is a compilation album. The music is not in English and this album wasn't released when the band was together. The name of the band is FZ-related and they were inspired by him. The close-up is from the front cover.
