Cool Album Covers For The Hip Cat's Pad

I love these album covers. These covers alone would have me sold. It wouldn't matter what the music sounded like. I've got a feeling though that these records feature some cool music. That's what any hip cat wants to be playing at his pad. I'd certainly like to have them in my collection. A fella could definitely have a swingin' time listening to these tunes with his chick. Cheers!

I love these. These are certainly cool. I'm sure that many people bought these records just because of their covers. Put a sexy girl on an album cover and a guy will buy it.

Carlotta said...

wow they're so beautiful, the 3rd one iss my fav, tnx for sharing that!

These are great! And the face of the dark-haired one on "Broad Minded" strongly resembles Amy Winehouse, but less cracky.

Joelyne said...

Planet Mondo said...

Those are great - International Vibrations has to be my fave.

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. Thanks. I do think these are some cool covers. I've bought plenty of music because of a cover. I'm sure many guys have.

Keith said...

Hey Carlotta. Thank you. I'm glad you liked them. The 3rd one is really cool.

Keith said...

Hey Stop. Glad you enjoyed them. LOL I hadn't thought about the chick on "Broad Minded," but I see what you mean.

Keith said...

Hey Joelyne. Thanks for the comments. Glad you enjoyed these. These came from a friend of mine over at myspace. I also find quite a lot of stuff on my own through just searching around.

Keith said...

Hey Dave. Glad you enjoyed these. Have a good weekend.

Robert M. Lindsey said...

These are some great covers! I can't pick a favorite.

dino martin peters said...

DINO-GAL said...

SUPER DUPER COOL PALLIE! ON THE THIRD ALBUM IT SURE DOES LOOK LIKE MARILYN MONROE ON THE RIGHT FRONT. I'LL BET THE TUNES SURE ARE COOKY & LOUNGY. CHEERS!

Couture Carrie said...

This is my fave post of yours yet, K! You are a hip cat for sure! Love all these album covers so!

Chris Casey said...

Swell lotta covers there, Pally!
If you'd toss in that classic LP cover from Herb Alpert's WHIPPED CREAM & OTHER DELIGHTS, some of those Martin Denny Exotica covers, and the like...well, you'd have the perfect bachelor pad LP line-up, brother!

Keith said...

Hey Robert. Glad you like them. Yeah, it is hard to pick a favorite one.

Keith said...

Hey pallie DMP. Who knows. That's a good question. I know that a lot of compilations of today will definitely have Dino tunes on them.

Keith said...

Hey pallie Terri. Thanks for your comments. Glad you liked these covers. I bet this is some really cool lounge music for the pad.

Keith said...

Hey Carrie. I'm glad you enjoyed this post so much. Thanks. I really appreciate your comments. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Chris. Thanks. Glad you liked these covers. I totally agree with you. I definitely want to post more covers in the future. All those albums would be so great in the collection of any cool and hip cat.

Twiggy Mod said...

Erika said...

Ohmigosh I love, love, love these! Amazing finds! :)

Tikimama said...

Cool! These are very sexy! I have lots of vintage album covers framed and on the wall as art since I love the looks of them so much. I sell them in my Etsy shop, too, when I can find cool ones at a good price.

dapper kid said...

The bath full of apples cover is so cool and sexy. And that last one makes me smile :)

Kim@ Fast Eddie's Retro Rags said...

Hot damn, the clothes are KILLING me! There really is "nothing like a dame". Those are all so deliciously cheesy!

Scott (gotankgo) said...

Sick collection of record covers!!! Totally dig 'em all. Not familiar with any of these, but I can only imagine there are some stellar tunes in there amongst all the music.

La Couturier said...

The 2nd, 3rd, & 4th are my favorites!

Bisous,
La C.

Keith said...

Hey Erika. Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed these. I thought they were cool.

Keith said...

Hey Tikimama. Thanks for the comments. Glad you liked these. I had heard of people putting them on their walls before. I think that's great. These covers are definitely good art for a cool pad.

Keith said...

Hey Dapper Kid. Thanks for the comments. I'm glad you enjoyed these. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Kim. Thanks for the comments. You definitely wouldn't see anything like this anymore. They could be pure cheese. That was part of the fun of them.

Keith said...

Hey Scott. Glad you dig these covers. I do too. I've never heard any of them before. They do have some awesome covers. I'm sure the music is some cool lounge stuff.

Keith said...

Hey La C. Thanks. I do like all of those you mentioned. Cheers!

Gabbi said...

Great album covers! My most favorite is the bowl of apples. Too cute. xo

The Voguette said...

for the love of frank said...

keith, you're totally upstaging your colleagues with this peach of a post. omg, i love this artwork!

the dude in the devil suit?! wha-what? that's too smooth... and what about the tub of apples... i'm sorry, but there's no way such a thing could be comfortable. you think apples bruise easily? vegetarians are even more delicate!

thanks for the great images!

Keith said...

Thanks Gabbi. I like that one too. I'm glad you enjoyed these covers. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Voguette. Thanks. Nice hearing from you. I really love that cover myself. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey for the love of frank, Thanks for the great feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed these. I did think they were cool. I definitely got a lot of good response from people over this post. I'm thrilled. These were some really neat covers. You just wouldn't see anything quite like that today. It's one of the reasons I so dig that era. Take care. Have a cool & swingin' weekend. Cheers!

Mrs. M. said...

is it just me or does the brunnette on Broad Minded look like Amy WInehouse?

Keith said...

Hey Mrs M, It's not just you. Several people have mentioned the same thing. She does look like her.

...love Maegan said...

if that doesn't look like a pretty version of Amy Winehouse, I'm a monkey's uncle .. .ahahahahah lol

Keith said...

Hey Maegan. LOL I know what you mean.
