mezstyle CARLY SIMON - PLAYING POSSUM
1975

This is the fifth studio album. This cover was controversial at the time, for its photograph of a near naked Simon with knee high boots and a negligee, nowadays though, it seems rather tame.
Norman Seef was the photographer.
This album cover ranked at number 20 on the Rolling Stones list for the 100 greatest album covers.

Playing Possum is a phrase that means "pretending to be dead" as possums tend to do this when threatened, to divert their predators.

sickofmodernart This is a 1980 repress of the 1970 album Skinhead Moonstomp by British ska/reggae band Simaryp, which is a close approximation of Pyramids backwards. Listening to this record, you can see the obvious influence Simaryp had on UK second-wave ska bands. I totally would love to have a backyard barbecue and blast this album the entire time. #vinyl #records #vinylrecords #vinylcollector #vinyljunkie #recordnerd #recordsnob #recordcollector #musicnerd #musicsnob #ska #reggae #secondwaveska #influential #skinheadreggae #simaryp #thepyramids #trojan #trojanrecords 5h

tonyamuro Neil Young - Decade 1977 Reprise Records, 3 LP Compilation. This set helped make me the Neil Young freak I am today. He is still my all-time favorite artist. I own all his work on vinyl and have seen him live far more than any other artist. I blame him (among others) for contributing to my taste for "out-there" or what I'd call "serious" music of various genres/sub-genres. Most people only know "Old Man" or "Heart of Gold" but Neil has 50+ very different albums of uncompromising music and has always strived for something new. There is a whole world of music just in his own solo career. Rust Never Sleeps was my starting point but this is also a great place to start with Neil. I'm hearing the man has some major changes happening in his life, and I wish him well and look forward to more music. #neilyoung #decade #crazyhorse #straygators #benkeith #dannywhitten #buffalospringfield #elliotroberts #stephenstills #csny #crazyneil #grunge #folk #folkrock #soloacoustic #singersongwriter #songwriter #neilyoungvinylcollection #vinyl #vinylporn #vinyladdict #vinylhead #nowspinning #vinyljunkie #vinyligclub #instavinyl #cratediggers #recordcollection #recordnerd 1d

mezstyle CARLY SIMON - PLAYING POSSUM
1975

This being the fifth studio album, continuing where the last two albums left off, securing her a place in the top 10 of the best selling album charts.
Carly Simon was married to James Taylor when she wrote this album and he appears on backing vocals for "Waterfall". Carole King also did backing vocals on "Attitude Dancing" and Ringo Starr played drums on "More and more", which was written by New Orleans pianist Dr John.

This cover was controversial at the time, for its photograph of a near naked Simon with knee high boots and a negligee, nowadays though, it seems rather tame.
Norman Seef was the photographer.
This album cover ranked at number 20 on the Rolling Stones list for the 100 greatest album covers.

jellyrollbaker A Clockwork Orange, OST.

There's the old joke that when you move out to the suburbs you get assigned your mandatory copy of "Frampton Comes Alive" but the punchline neglects to mention the fact that the album often sat on the shelves next to the "Clockwork Orange" soundtrack. This record is bloody ubiquitous and turns up in the oddest places. I found my copy in a collection that otherwise featured Frampton, Neil Diamond and Mitch goddam Miller. So how did this album of synthesiser renditions of classical tunes taken from a film that uses art house techniques to explore an esoteric point of Catholic theology get so darn popular? I think it captured a certain spirit, a sense of looking forward (the techniques used to create the music) combined with looking back (the music itself). It captured the guard looking nature of the sixties but with a renewed appreciation for the past. It strives forward but looks behind. Display this album proudly on your shelf and show yourself as a forward thinker but with sophisticated yet accessible tastes. Might even get you laid.
