Our cat Momar paid a visit to the record store this morning to poke around.
Which reminds us, isn’t it sort of peculiar that a guy named Cat Stevens wrote a song called “I Love My Dog.”

Earlier this month the folks at Third Man Records released a 7-inch of two new songs recorded by the Blind Shake in their “blue room.” They asked the guys where they’d like to debut the single, and to our surprise our favorite local band chose us! At the time, the blue vinyl of the singles were delayed and they’re finally here. So if you’re a colored-vinyl freak and you were waiting to hear these killer live takes of “I Shot all the Birds” and “Tar Paper,” today’s your day!
Its always really heartbreaking to see a box of good albums which has been in a flooded basement or garage. Sometimes they’re worth saving, in case a clean jacket can be found. Others are just a lost cause, like the BB King album in this picture. In addition to water damage, it looks like a dog chewed on it!
We’re always fascinated by the animals on album jackets, as evidence by a recent post about Rick Springfield’s dog, Lethal Ron. But what about cats?
A couple years ago Carole King posted a polaroid her daughter took of Telemachus, the cat on the cover of Tapestry, to Twitter, describing him as “perhaps the most famous tabby cat on earth.”
And then there’s this li’l guy climbing over Michael’s leg inside the Thriller jacket. We tried but we couldn’t find his name anywhere. In the late 90s Michael did adopt a pair of Bengal tigers and add them to the enormous menagerie of animals at his Neverland ranch, which also included elephants, flamingos and a crazy quantity of reptiles. The death of one of the tigers, named Thriller, at a California wildlife preserve was widely reported in the tabloid media in 2012.
Other news accounts report he had two sets sets of tigers at the 3,000 acre property, naming each Thriller and Sabu. And before the MJ haters start in with their negativity, by all accounts the animals at Neverland were well cared for when relocated to preserves beginning in 2005.
A 2001 special edition of had an alternate from the tiger cub shoot on the cover.
