The Police – Ghost in the Machine

Wikipedia: " The cover art for Ghost in the Machine features a seven-segment display-inspired graphic that depicts the heads of the three band members, each with a distinctive hair style (from left to right, Andy Summers, Sting with spiky hair, and Stewart Copeland with a fringe); the band was unable to decide on a photograph to use for the cover. Wire bonds can be seen on the original issue vinyl album cover, suggesting perhaps that the display is a photographic collage. The album's cover is ranked at No. 45 in VH1's 50 Greatest Album Covers. The graphic was designed by Mick Haggerty."

Me: Stares at album cover for a while – "Ok, that's kind of clever. And also brilliantly cheap. Why can't I have ideas like this?"

and

"What an incredible album. The haters can suck it."

Off topic:

Very interesting. For a while I thought it was some kind of writing like the one used in the movie "Predator"

Finished editing and processing my recordings of 2018's Monterey Jazz Festival. 

Here's a few cuts.

Christian McBride Trio with Benny Green's flyin fingers.

Fred Hirsh with an awesome Beatles variation.

And Dianna Reeves joins McBride's trio on the Arena stage

The notorious test of cartridge/arm, the pressing marked A11 is the real killer. My Zu/DL103, SMEIV (with damper) and Garrard 401 tracked it like a champ. And frightened the bejeezus out of me at the first cannon shot!

This is what the grooves look like:

Interesting ^ The first one I'd seen performed without realizing it -- I thought it was just an introduction to "Africa", didn't realize it was actually composed.  In fact, there's no credit to Kalogirou.

Unrelated:  me, now:  Morgaua Quartet

These people from Pitchfork usually show good groups. I have been subscribed to your channel for some time.

I prefer "Revolver" ( IMO the best album of the boys of Liverpool) but "Abbey Road" is no bad.

Groovy!  (Someone mentioned Jefferson Airplane, and it definitely throws me back in time to that era.)
