Okay, so I hit the flea market last Thursday in the freezing cold and came upon this dope soundtrack collection – Melinda, Sweetback’s Badass Song, The Marketts Play Batman, Mannix, More Mission Impossbile, etc.., when I came upon this box of… fake records!!
That’s right- about 35 or 40 hand-drawn and hand-painted album covers made between 1969 and 1976, some complete with fake cardboard records inside them. Apparently some guy who called himself “Mingering Mike” put together all of these albums as if he were the musician.. the covers are complete with hand-drawn barcodes, track listings, lyrics, drawings of the band(s), and in some cases, liner notes. He did soul and funk albums and blaxploitation soundtracks (for movies that never existed), and even a Christmas album!
