LPCL is 4 Years Old Today, But Who’s Counting!?

November 23rd marks the auspicious start to a shared personal project called LP Cover Lover.   Since this day in 2006, Tony and I have posted 3,415 covers from our collections for the whole world to see.   Now more than 50,000 visitors a month come to LPCoverLover.com and we’ve received more than 6,000 comments – some from friends and family of even of the most obscure performers listed; many from a few long-time followers; some informative and many very funny.   We haven’t even scratched the surface of the records lined up to post, so we hope that you’ll continue to check in on us; maybe spin the wheel-of-fortune to see what comes up (it may be a sign!), enjoy the ever-growing Chicks Dig Records gallery or take a (another) quick peek at the lovely girls modeling our T-shirts (on sale now for only $20, shipping included … the shirt not the girl!); and, if you’d like, send us a note.   We’d love to hear from you.

We’re an American band

The princess and Guiseppe

“Bedtime Stories Italian Style”   by Giuseppe, the Italian Baby-sitter!   Box Office Records   “…a decidedly different delineation of a half-dozen famous fairy tales.   Combining today’s adult world of reality with the time-honored world of fantasy…”     “Taking farcical liberties under the protection of his pizzeria palaver, he puts the accent high on hilarity”     Giuseppe is in reality a prominent orchestra leader born and raised in NYC.   His Italian accent is strictly for this album, recorded at the repeated urging of friends who have joyfully sampled his performances at private parties.
