Let’s have a look at a selection of odd and perhaps lesser-known album covers from yesteryear – all featuring alcohol of all varieties. Whether it’s beer, wine or the hard stuff, records and drinking have a long tradition of working well together. Enjoy.
Eric looks absolutely hammered. Someone get Mr. Gentry a cup of coffee and a ride home, pronto!
Note to the ladies: If you’ve been drinking enough to be considered “knockers up”, you may want to slow down a tad.
There’s nothing sexier than a drunk woman in exotic headwear singing “Web Footed Friends”.
I hope someone wipes down the bar after she’s through. Also – I like how they included the footstool she used to climb up on the bar. A nice touch.
Any clue why every track is listed as “slow”?
Blondie needs to stop nursing that round and catch up with the redhead, whose clearly already sloshed.
If the number of drinks you’ve had is proportional to poor posture, this lady’s “jober as a sudge” as they say.
Signs you may have had too much to drink: You are topless with grape leaves stuck in your hair.
For those that think sleazy lyrics are new: take note – we’ve been singing along to raunchy tunes since man learned to ferment his grapes.
Tip of the day: Don’t ever invite Hugo and Luigi to your kids’ birthday parties. They can be a bit loud and tend to break things.
The girl on the left is clearly hogging all the mats. Some people get selfish when they drink.
I don’t know if I included this fella in the Vinyl Studs post, but he needs to be.
Look, I’m all about having fun and having one-too-many… but this is just awkward.
It’s not a party until the men with shiny turquoise sweaters show up.
It’s not what it looks like. She’s actually just dropping an antacid in his drink. Charlie has terrible heartburn.
You can tell exactly what drink she’s on: She’s on the “Oh, crap. I have to get up early to work tomorrow…. oh, fuck it – bottoms up!” drink.
To the girl with the black headband: Usually, friends don’t start writing on your face until you’ve passed out. This is a bad sign of things to come.
I love gold doubloon necklaces.
I like the cover, I really do… but it might’ve been better without the tongue – not the best look.
And another from the Frau Wirtin collection…
Gee, do you think they have enough booze to get them through the evening? If you need that much “liquid courage” to get in the sack, you may want to rethink things.
Umm… I think Lisa is officially off the wagon.
Juan is livin’ the dream – just sippin’ his wine while his woman irons his clothes in a miniskirt. Life is good.
Next time, you may not want to order the 75 ounce bottle of Steve Francis moonshine. It’s a bit much on an empty stomach.
Bruno made a lot of poor decisions in his life… choosing this bar was not one of them.
You can’t see her other arm, but I think it’s dialing 9-1-1.
Okay, I’m cutting you off here. I think you’ve had enough. Until next time!
