CaroleBristol said...

Well?

Don't keep it a secret, share it Blimpy!

Blimpy said...

2. is The Sundays "Reading, writing, and arithmetic"
3 is Spiritualized' "Let It Come Down"
12 is Ride's epic "Nowhere"

CaroleBristol said...

Yes Blimpy, three right.

FP said...

I knew number 2 - I think it was the last vinyl I ever bought. Wonderful album. Otherwise zilch.

Catcher said...

Is 1 Throwing Muses, The Real Ramona? 4 is Kristin Hersh, Hips And Makers, 5 is Cocteau Twins, Treasure. I think.

bethnoir said...

I knew number 2, and number 7 looks very familiar, I'm sure I will kick myself when you reveal it.
Did you ever do Gideon Coe's album cover quiz back in the days when he was on BBC 6Music in the daytime? Badly drawn versions in his case, it was fun.

Catcher said...

I think 7 is Pink Floyd, Obscured By Clouds?

Never heard of Gideon Coe's quiz, does sound like fun. Must try investigating.

ToffeeBoy said...

If I don't find out what number 8 is soon I may have to kill myself - do you want that on your hands CaroleBristol?????

I knew number 2 and I suspect I should know number 12. I'm rubbish, me...

glasshalfempty said...

It's horrible when you only know one, and it's already been got! yes, Catcher, Obscured by Clouds, surely...
5 looks awfully familiar, and 8 looks like it should be Kraftwerk, but isn't.
Nice quiz idea, shame all my vinyl is in a lock up!

Blimpy said...

5 looks like "A Storm In Heaven" gone a wee bit wrong!

bethnoir said...

*kicks self in shin* of course 7 is obscured by clouds, also recognise number five as Cocteau Twins having thought about it (anyone else been enjoying Goldfrapp's take on Liz Frazer?). That 6Music quiz is back, hopefully here's a link

CaroleBristol said...

OK, we currently have the following correct ones;

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12

Five left to go ....................

saneshane said...

grrrr
spiritualized easy (mine is the 3D packageing)
4AD stuff fine..can just make them out....but
thought 11 was gary numan to start with but it so isnt and 8 looks like it should be easy..I love cover art me! I feel ashamed.

DarceysDad said...

Evening all.

I knew 2 & 3 straight away, but reading the comments, I've also GOT 4 & 5, but simply didn't recognise them at that resolution and size. Is that deliberate, Carole, or can I do something about it?

TonNL said...

6. Augustus Pablo - King Tubby meets Rockers Uptown (classic album!)
8. Traffic - On the road
10. ...a Robin Trower album, don't know which one...

CaroleBristol said...

Hi DsD, the size was deliberate, it kind of makes things tougher. It also cuts down the size of the file.

TonNL has 6 and 8 100% correct and is right about 10 being Robin Trower, maybe someone can get the title now?

So, now we are just looking for 9 and 11

ToffeeBoy said...

The Robin Trower album is Bridge of Sighs

CaroleBristol said...

ToffeeBoy has it!

So, just the last two now.

ShivSidecar said...

My first contribution here for about 2 months - must get out & about more. No.11 is John Martyn's fab "Inside Out" - blimey, is it that obscure? Pretty sure I've never seen no.9 before. (Incidentally, I'd have got 8 artistes and 6 album titles right on first glance... what do I win for being a Johnny-Nomates smartarse? Two of the ones I _didn't_ get I actually own...!)

CaroleBristol said...

Shiv is right, 11 is John Martyn's "Inside Out"

A clue for the last one, #9 - the band is one of my listed favourites.

CaroleBristol said...

If no one gets #9 by Monday evening, I'll tell you.

CaroleBristol said...

This was the full dozen;

1 Throwing Muses The Real Ramona
2 The Sundays Reading, Writing and Arithmetic
3 Spiritualized Let It Come Down
4 Kristin Hersh Hips And Makers

6 Pink Floyd Obscured By Clouds
7 Augustus Pablo King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown
8 Traffic On The Road
