here at 8 Track Shack for $25. There looks to be some remnants of tape across the cover girl's breasts. Why bother covering up the skin on an album that contains raunchy humor? Seems odd.

Black Keys album, Brothers, comes as a two LP set and even includes a bonus CD, so you can listed to it in your car. Lot of new releases have come out on vinyl in the past few years, including some reissues of classics as well as true new release albums. Amazon offers quite a few new vinyl releases that you can add to your collection.

This Hal Otis & Orchestra, Speak Low 1950's vinyl LP on the Westminster label sold this week on eBay for almost $150. Who's Hal Otis? Who cares, the album cover has a huge image of Jayne Mansfield in what might have been a dress. Nobody ever bought this album for the music, not even in 1957, though I'm sure that there were many wives that were told just the opposite...and probably many husbands that had to actually listen to the record.

First thing to not try... Using your vinyl records as Frisbees! This was actually suggested in an article on Lifehackery.com. This could be dangerous...and painful, but it could also be extremely entertaining and amusing, so whatever, have fun.
Lifehackery also suggests using them as BB gun targets, ping-pong paddles, clocks and bowl. Back in the 80's (and probably before that too) it was cool to make bowls out of records. Apparently it's coming back in vogue as you can find numerous sites selling all sorts of variations of these bowls, just on Amazon.com alone, there is a wide selection of vinyl record bowls in different shapes and sizes. Etsy has many handmade products from crafters, some of which include painted vinyl record mirrors.
