This cover is so great, they actually put the same full photo on the back as well.   No writing anywhere.     We might be asking for trouble, but there’s a free LP Cover Lover T-shirt for the best caption submitted by November 4th.

The fab faux

rutles

The Rutles “A Hard Day’s Rut”   Parlourphone Records   A Rutles bootleg (if a parody band can have such a thing)   Originally created by Eric Idle and Neil Innes as a fictional band to be featured as part of various 1970s television programming, the group evolved into a real band that recorded and toured, debuted in the States on a couple of Saturday Night Live programs in 1975 and 1976 and was the subject of a mockumentary film “All You Need is Cash”.   The band included “Nasty” (Innes); “Stig” (Rikki Fataar); “Dirk” (Idle); and “Barry” (John Halsey).
