WHAT’S MY THEME? #2

Another easy one. [This second trial is so I can try ‘holding’ the comments to give folk in different time zones a chance to answer. If I can somehow remove spoilers, I’ll let the comment through immediately.] So, what links these albums? *** *** *** *** LEVEL: EASY

ALBUM COVER QUIZ – THE SEVENTIES

A long time ago (about a year) we ran a series of Album Cover quizzes on various decades. We covered three epochs (60s, 80s, 00s) but skipped over Vinyl Connection’s favourite decade, the Seventies. Welcome, then, to the post-sixties comedown. * THE RULES Below are fourteen album covers (CD sized) resting on a 12″ LP. […]

NOW WE ARE SIX

The first Vinyl Connection post was on 10 May 2013. Six years later, forty-odd posts shy of 500, we’re still going. From a personal perspective, 2019 has thrown up challenges to posting regularly. I’m not complaining, mind you. To grizzle about having paid writing work would be disingenuous and just plain wrong. But I do […]

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 […]

ALBUM COVER QUIZ—THE NAUGHTIES

Continuing the ‘Decade’ theme, this is the millennial edition of the album cover quiz — with a twist. The general consensus was that the all-eighties quiz was too difficult, so this is a variant. Ten of the albums are from the period 2000–2009, the other five are not.* The setup and rules are the same: […]

ALBUM COVER QUIZ—THE EIGHTIES

The album cover quiz posted a few weeks ago seemed to be enjoyed by many. In fact, a series of ‘Decade’ themed quizzes was proposed. Here is the first: THE EIGHTIES Below are fourteen album covers (CD sized) resting on a 12″ LP. All were released between 1980 and 1989. The task is to identify […]

A QUIZ FOR RECORD STORE DAY (QUIZ #4)

It’s two years since I’ve posted a cover art quiz here at Vinyl Connection. What with the ongoing ‘Pick the artist’ game at 1001albumsin10years (the dedicated Geoff presiding) and the fun sporcle links hosted by Aphoristic Album Reviews (keeping the antipodean flag flying) no-one could say that the old musical grey matter has been un-ruffled […]

RSD 16: COMMUNITY AND COMPETITION (QUIZ #3)

Chatting to several Record Store owners in the lead up to this year’s ‘International Record Store Day’ there was a sense the hype has well-and-truly overpowered the original idea. The releases were patchy, the prices exorbitant (and margins reduced); there was a sense of store owners being blackmailed via RSD propaganda into ordering LPs of […]
