You know, we've posted some... shall we say "suspect" album covers on this blog.
Today, I want to show you an actual real one. This is Ricky Van Shelton's "Loving Proof," an album that spawned such hits as "I'll Leave This World Loving You," and "From a Jack to a King."
Notice anything? Like maybe this photo was taken in Ricky's basement? Like that's his washing machine in the background? What's that jug of liquid behind him. What's in the 5-gallon bucket on the floor? Amway SA-8 detergent.
Worse yet, what's the black pipe he's leaning on? Looks suspiciously like a toilet drain-pipe.
What happened? Did his record label call up and say "Ricky! We caint git no photographer out there to y'all. Howzabout you git the little woman to shoot a couple of Polaroids and send them to us? Oh, and while your at it, why don't you write your name on the picture with a Sharpie?
Lifestyles of the rich and famous, for sure.
