I’m your puppet (don’t mess with me)



Creepy.  We love these really odd records.  Scary dolls.  This children’s record is from Mascot Records in Denmark circa 1958.   The artist is Olaf Kjeldstrup but the real star is the ragdoll with the ukelele.

And now, a few things about LPCoverLover that you might not know!

  • LPCoverLover was launched in November 2006 by Matthew and Tony, two lifelong record collectors whose passion for finding odd and unusual records brought them together in the spirit of friendly competition and the desire to blow each other’s mind with new and incredible discoveries from around the world!
  • While there are many copycat sites, blogs, pages, posts and imitators across the world wide interweb, everything you see on LpCoverLover is from our collections.  Records that we find, photograph and share because we haven’t seen them before and we think they’re worthy.
  • Since we started more than 12 years ago, many of the records that we’ve unearthed have become staples of the Incredibly Strange/Weird/Bizarre recordsphere.
  • We’ve even seen our name and logo on bootleg merch like shirts and cigarette lighters (?)  for sale in the back of magazines like MOJO and sundry sites.
  • Because we’ve been slow to move to other platforms that aren’t linked with our wordpress posts here (you can find us on Facebook, Tumbler and Twitter), our name LPCoverLover has been co-opted by others on Instagram and Pinterest. The sincerest form of flattery I guess, but don’t be fooled by imitators.
  • Our LPCoverLover Facebook page has approximately 10,000 followers now and allows us to hear from many other collectors which we love.
  • We could pull from our still growing collections for many years without getting tired, but the truth is it’s our most recent finds that get us the most excited and end up here first.
  • We recently started an eBay store and will continue to offer up our doubles for sale at reasonable prices.

Who knows where we go from here, but as long as Tony keeps digging up insanely cool and rare records and challenging me to do the same – LPCoverLover will chug along and hopefully continue to shock and awe!
