Album Covers from the Past

Hello Dear Readers!  I thought it would be fun for us to take a nostalgic look back at a more simple time courtesy of Album Covers from the Past!

Remember Tammy Faye Bakker?

Tammy Faye Bakker If it had not been
We will always remember our beloved Tammy Faye Bakker, the face that launched a thousand gallons of Cover Girl

Besides her penchant for industrial strength makeup, she also had an industrial strength love for the Lord.

Back in 1980, Tammy Faye was married to Jim Bakker, a once popular televangelist who was catapulted from grace when he got caught dating prostitutes and borrowing several million dollars from the church collection plate and accidentally forgetting to pay it back — resulting in an extended stay at Motel Prison.

Let’s run over to Google and type in Tammy Faye Bakker Quotes just to see what comes up, shall we?  Oh here’s some good ones:

“You can educate yourself right out of a relationship with god.” 

“I wake up every morning and wish I was dead and so does Jim.”

It seems Tammy Faye Bakker’s fondest wish to become dead finally came true on July 20, 2007 when she succumbed to lip-liner poisoning.  (Her husband is still alive but is expected to die at some point in the future, God willing!)

Now here’s three jolly souls who are absolutely determined to squeeze every quark of joy there is to be squeezed from the Greek cobblestones of life itself!  

Syrtaki 1 Instrumental

The back of this album cover tells us:

Syrtaki touches everybody’s heart because from the melancholy evolves the joy and from the desperation comes the rapture of this man, who suddenly jumps to his feet.”  

Well, apparently in Greece there’s nothing like melancholy and desperation to  make a man don a sash,  jump to his feet and Dance! Dance! Dance!   OMICRON PI ALPHA!!


Here’s a colorful 1973 album of Mexican Folklore that sings and dances its way through  every Mexican historical event since creation.  

Ballet Folk Lore of Mexico
Ballet Folklorico De Mexico loosely translated means Ballet of Mexican Folklore. Tightly translated it means BalletFolkloricoDeMexico

Your feet will be tap tap tappin’ when you hear the musical interpretations of that pesky plumed serpent Quetzacoatl as he steals  bones from the underworld to create a little thing he likes to call mankind ha ha — to  the Mexican Revolution of 1910 (wa wa waaaa) and every single thing that happened in Mexico in between!

Mexican FolK Dancers
And one and two and three and four . . . Quetzalcoatl stole some bones to create us, doo dah doo dah . . .The revolution of 1910 was not much fun . . . all the doo dah day!

And there you have it, Dear Readers, a nostalgic look back at a more simply time courtesy of Album Covers from the Past!

Until next time . . . I love you

    • LOL Addie! You’re right about the eyeliner! Hahaha! My local thrift store has tons of old albums. Somebody must have donated a huge collection. I’m having a ball sorting through them all. It’s a huge time suck but usually I can find some gem among them! 😀

  1. Tammy and Jim – what a darling couple! They should have written a book called ‘How to screw gazilions out of the masses’. The quote about wishing she was dead is a classic – they just don’t make ’em like they used to! 😉

  2. Did you hear the old joke about the tee shirt that had globs of blue, black, and red all over it? The words underneath the colors were, “I just ran into Tammy Fay.”

  3. LOLOL!!!!! The captions are too funny, Linda! The back of the Greek album is so rich and dramatic that only somebody with a sash and a taste for souvlaki could write that cheese! And of course I’m speaking strictly of Feta.
    Tammy Faye, God rest her eye lining soul, is still such a marvel. “I wake up every morning and wish I was dead and so does Jim.” Bwhahaha!!!

    • Oh I’m so you enjoyed the captions, Lisa. Oh my goodness. Tammy Faye can lift someone spirits in nothing flat. She was a gift from god above. Yes oh yes!! “God rest her eye lining soul!” Haha!

  4. I have all these albums in my collection. And they’re in mint condition. I may have been dumb enough to buy them, but I was smart enough not to actually play them… : P

Please leave a comment. I need help finishing my sentences.
