Her spindly fingers, with their long blood-red nails, are stretched across Welch's chest -- both she and Welch are wearing rings on their ring finger, but you certainly don't get the impression they are married to each other. And most strikingly, she is tonguing his face, or perhaps his earlobe.
I know the album is called French Kiss, but isn't then when you put your tongue in someone's mouth? The left half of the album cover seems to have set itself on fire to cleanse itself of the seedy filthiness of what's happening on the right.
This picture tells you everything you need to know about the self-indulgent '70s ideal: It gloriously conjures up cocaine spoons and key parties, empty promises made in hot tubs, interchangeable and indifferent bodies letting it all hang out in discos, sex in sports cars and hotel rooms while the 8-track of this album repeats and repeats.
One thing this cover tells you immediately is that French Kiss is not for children. It's a rock album for adults -- for those who aren't embarrassed or reluctant to have left youth behind. Today, most rock albums that aren't explicitly aimed at high school kids are suffused with nostalgia for when its middle-aged audience was teenagers.
They imply that those were inevitably the best years of our lives and that being grown up is one compromise, one sellout, one dreary responsibility after another. But on this cover, Welch embodies the idea that adulthood can be one endless party too, a better one, since everyone has more money, better drugs and fewer inhibitions.
This mood is epitomized by Welch's signature song, "Sentimental Lady," which opens the album and encapsulates the era's zeitgeist perfectly. After guitarist Jeremy Spencer left to join a religious cult, the California-born Welch had taken over for him and piloted the Mac through its lean but somewhat underrated early '70s period. He quit in late , only to see Fleetwood Mac become the most popular rock band on earth after his departure. Perhaps feeling sorry for him, Lindsey Buckingham produced this Welch re-recording of "Sentimental Lady" and gave him the biggest hit of his career.
May have light warping but it should not affect the play. Cover - will have noticeable wear such as ring wear, minor seam splitting, writing on cover, creases, etc. Could be a couple items not all and they should not be major.
Vinyl - will look VERY played, have lot of marks, scuffs, scratches possibly deep , play with noticeable maybe even consistent background noise but is still listenable. May have warping but it should not affect play. Vinyl - will play but will have a lot of issues and have a lot of loud background noise. We will rarely list a record in this condition.
All the seams are split, the panels are moldy, major writing all over, etc. The only time we'll list a record with a cover in this shape is if it's rare or the record is in great shape. We used high quality mailers, two cardboard stiffners and if the album you are buying is used it is shipped outside the cover to prevent damage to the seams in transit.
When it comes to shipping LaserDiscs we don't always ship outside the cover as in transit seam wear is not as common. If you want your discs shipped outside the cover feel free to note that at checkout in the message box. Special Note for 78's: Shellac records are much more fragile and require additional packaging, because of this each 78 will count as two records for shipping calculation purposes.
