Vinyl Dynamite #40: Homemade Album Art


"Bustin' Out for Rosie" by Tommy Bolin (1976)

Like the album art above? Well, it's completely of my own design.  Tommy Bolin didn't even release this song as a single from his album Private Eyes  Sometimes I just like to kill time screwing around with Photoshop and making my own album art.

Don't judge me.

Anyway, I thought that I'd share a few of them with you rather than keep this rich bounty all to myself. I tried to stick to a theme: songs with girls' names in the title. From my end, I can tell exactly how many of you folks download and play these things, so if it's at least semi-popular (meaning just a few thousand downloads), I'll post more. I just never know with you people.


"Suzy Creamcheese" by Teddy and His Patches (1967)



"Mademoisell Ninette" by The Soulful Dynamics (1970)


Angela (Theme from "Taxi") by Bob James (1978)


"Shirley, Shirley" by TR5 (1969)

  1. If someone said that TR5 cover was a real album, I'd believe them. Probably the best done one of all of them.

  5. i mourned tommy bolin when he kicked the bucket - "teaser" great album too, and "privates eyes" - "post toastee" and "sweet burgundy" the legend was that he died falling off a barstool, but at any rate, a great loss
