    1. Awesome, Dave. Further response pending! 🙂


      1. Only listing what I have in my own collection Bruce. Ran out of time last night, thankfully for everyone else on this blog, or I could have kept going at tedious length. I seem to have way too many albums.
        Excellent topic.

        1. Glad you liked it, Dave. I used (mostly) my collection too.
          As a forty-five year fan of krautrock, I’m devastated that I didn’t include the okra! I think this means there must be a Part II.


  4. Neat idea for a post, Bruce!

    1. Ah, that is excellent. Forgot nuts are fruit.

      (PS. Depending on what device you use, there is always a feature image for a post. In this case, it was Andy Warhol’s…?)


  8. I’m waiting for part 2. I need a bit more veg and fruit in my diet. I’ve been scraping it off my plate and under the table lately.

  10. A lovely idea for a post, Bruce.
    Tangerine, by Dexter Gordon.
    It’s the only fruity cover I could find in my collection. And it’s a perfect pearing to Beck-Ola. (Ow! That pun hurts).
