4. I picked the Beatles White Album cover; I could just study it for hours...
Watch out where the huskies go,
and don't you eat that yellow snow...

:crazy:

7. Yep!...all their album covers were done by Neon Park

I love all of them, but this is my favorite (George Washington and Marilyn Monroe...gotta love it!)

12. It's just missing the hood of a car.
But that is definitely endlessly fascinating...

10. That's a Neon Park cover too.....
I never noticed that before. Makes sense, since Lowell George and Neon were great friends, and Lowell was playing with the Mothers when 'weasels' was recorded.

13. Cheap Thrills


flip side:




Classic R. Crumb work, and what's inside is just as brilliant. My sister owned in '68 or so, may even still have it, and little 10-yr-old ironflange damn near wore the grooves off it. Still one of my fave albums.

15. Saw the ORIGINAL "Weasels" painting in a San Francisco museum
As well as the original for this:



Stewart's credibility was just about gone at the time, but in "real life," that was some mighty impressive airbrush work...this was done in 1975, when this kind of artwork was still done by hand (version 1 of Adobe Photoshop didn't ship until 1990)...

:toast:

PS: The Zappa cover was THE center of attraction at the exhibit.

16. I have the Weasels Ripped My Flesh Album!
I have always liked it's surreality. Sigh. I miss Mr. Zappa.
