Covers Project Vol. VII

Oh yes, it's the latest installment of cool covers. And, just so we're all on the same page, the cheesy pic to the left is totally lying. These aren't all hits from the '70s (although a surprising amount of them are) and, hell, a few of them would need extensive plastic surgery, a fake moustache, and an accompanying hypnotherapist before they'd ever run the danger of being mistaken as "hits" - but I'm not gonna concern myself with such strict definitions. There is one small sliver of truth-in-advertising, however: if you were so inclined, you really could sing along with these mofos. And if you haven't already downloaded the previous volumes, just click on the "covers" tag at the bottom of this post to have them all laid out neatly before your very eyes.

I just discovered your site (thanks to a link at Captain Crawl, great source) and I downloaded this covers collection (which is really good, thanks), but when I tried to download Covers 6 that won't download. Would you mind checking that? Thanks and now that I've bookmarked your site I'll be a regular. Thanks for all your hard work on it.

There does seem to be a problem with the link for Covers 6 - thanks for bringing that to my attention. I just put up a secondary link in that post, so it's available once again.

And welcome to the blog, CHS!
