Back in the day, we bought albums. Vinyl records that played music when you spinned them and put a needle on their surface. Barbaric, I know. These albums came with album covers and some of these covers we're really cool. So tell us what are the most unusual alubums you have owned.
For me it was: Grand Funk Railroad's E Pluribus Funk. The album cover looked like a coin with the 3 members of the band in the face if the coin.
rarest one that i have is Hendrix, Band of Gypsys, with the RIGHT HANDED puppet on the back 1970. photos are copyright, so can't attach
picturing puppets of Hendrix, Brian Jones, Bob Dylan and English DJ John Peel. Reportedly Peel complained and the cover was withdrawn and replaced with a live photo of Hendrix, but still got it along with fifteen first release copies of other early rare Hendrix, including with Curtis Knight

Buzz the Fuzz
Once there was a fellow
And his name was Buzz
He was just a rookie cop
Just a baby fuzz
He patrolled the Sunset Strip
In the land of the free
And the home of the hip
He protected you and me
Until he met a girl named Alice D.
Alice was the girl that all good hippies dread
And they called her Sweet Alice D. Head
Alice it was plain to see
Was full of pot and STP
She'd attract a great big crowd
Because her inner peace
Was much too loud
Good Buzz did the thing
That good fuzz must
Shoved his gun in Alice's chest
And said "Dis is a bust!"
Put the flashlight to her eyes
She began to hyp-no-tize
Buzz said "What a wild sensation
This must be halu-halu-sinay-sinay-shun-shun-shun."
Love is so sensational
When you fall in love
With eyes dilational
Buzz said "Alice, you I like.
Come take ride on my fuzzy bike.
Soon it will be gettin' dark
And we can watch the stars
From Griffith Park."
So they both went out and dug astrology
Through their mutual halucinology
Now they're taking pills and shots
And Buzz is not afraid of Watts
Buzz and Alice D have shown
The way of where the fuzz
Might be some day
Buzz is still a cop of course
He's the pusher on the force
He's protecting you and me
From evil women like poor Alice D.
