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?
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!
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.
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!
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
