ALBUM COVER QUIZ — THE SIXTIES

Here is the third instalment in the ‘Decade’ themed album cover quizzes.

We’ve aced the Eighties, and nuked the Naughties… Now it’s time to swing into the Sixties.

Below are fourteen album covers (CD sized) resting on a 12″ LP.

All were released between 1960 and 1969.

The task is to identify as many as you can, by fair means or foul.

Please don’t submit answers, simply record your score out of 15 in the Comments.

REMEMBER:

Please don’t enter answers in the Comments, just your score/15.

    I call foul though as I see neither Whipped Cream or Delight.

      1. I thought there was lots.of herb back in the 60’s.

        Plus Whipped Cream is the initiation album into the vinyl club. (I just picked up another copy today in fact)

      2. Whipped Cream…I loved that album! That and S.R.O. had a lot of play time on my parents’ turntable back in the day…wow, memories.

        1. When I got back into vinyl in a big way, Whipped Cream and Other Delights was the very first album I saw at the thrift store.
          I loved the cover and had to buy it. Then I found out it is the unofficial album every vinyl collector must own.
          Yesterday I was vinyl shopping and found a virtually unplayed copy with jacket in opened shrink. For $1 I took it home.
          Hence the comments on here.

  4. I’m a big fan of this series Bruce – and it was fun to see some covers that I actually have in the collection!
    Somewhere between 6 & 7 – depending on half marks for knowing artist but not album (and vice versa)!

  8. Looks like a heyday into vinyl grooves. I see Jefferson Airplane with ” After Bathing at Baxter’s” on top. An outstanding album of true brilliance and a band’s ability to evolve with the radical times that were “a – changin”.

  15. 12/15 (including LP); straight legit with no cheats/look-ups. Think I can guess at the sideburns-guy-with-girl-in-back-on-a-mat and am quite confident re the “scallions” one but don’t actually know those two by anything other than context. Swimsuit Andress (if that’s her) is the one that I can’t even guess at…

    1. Sideburns Guy is one of the trickier ones. Something of a VC hero, but not widely known outside his genre or instrument club.

      I’m absolutely delighted that Ms Andress is causing consternation.

      Reveal probably US (west) Sunday late afternoon. (Aus Monday morning / UK Sunday night)

    Well done, and thanks to everyone who participated.

    1. As dismal as anticipated. The only one for which I knew *both* the artist and title was John Mayall with EC; I recognized The Byrds, The Beatles, and Zappa, but was uncertain of the titles.
