1980, Epic # NJE 36198
Ozz – Potential rock and roll superstars doomed by the album cover design department. No self-respecting 80′s rocker would be caught dead buying an album with this cover photo. It looks like the dude snuck up on stage during an Earth, Wind, & Fire Show in a circus tent.
The music is actually not bad. A bit dated, but certainly not what you’d expect from the cover. Apparently, modern metalheads have come to consider this album a bit of a “lost gem”. Check it out:
“Bring Out the Jazz”
1985, Earring Records
When I found this I honestly thought it was going to be a recording of a high school jazz band. I have to admit being a bit disappointed to find out Personal Effects is actually a nerdy synth-pop group from Rochester, NY. Not sure what look they were going for on this cover. The mid-80′s were a weird, confused time…
In a band called Margaret Explosion
