I got you Covered

Okay you Knights and Ladiezzz..there is a new craze in town... especially for those who bought their music on Vinyl, and now have plenty of time on their hands now the kids have left home....
Ever fancied being Paul McCartney’s body double or seeing how Barbra Streisand’s head would look on your body? Well, here’s your chance.

The concept couldn’t be simpler. Put a record sleeve or CD case in front of your face, make sure your body aligns with the person on the cover, get a friend to take a photo — then send it to


http://www.sleeveface.com/


Now the website’s creators are releasing a book of the best Sleevefaces — and they’re more inventive than ever...



Hugh's that boy? You can't take anything for Granted with this soundtrack


Cover-up: One fan's love for jazz king John Coltrane


Winging it: Linda and Paul McCartney come together


These boots were made for sliding: A playful tribute to Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood


I'm Dreaming: And so is American crooner Pat Boone


By the hair on my chinny chin: Not Jackie Gleason


Face-off: A devotee with the blonde ambition to copy DJ Richie Hawtin


A cunning plan: Blackadder's Rowan Atkinson enjoys a tea break


My cup of tea: A taste of 60s smoothie Jack Jones


On the nose: What are odds it's Barbra Streisand?


A howl lot of talent: This pooch will be glad he's got a friend in James Taylor

Put out to grass: But singer Xuxa is famous in Brazil

Hello: Is Lionel Richie really looking for tattoos?


Tight fit: But not as hot as Canadian singer Peaches


Hooked: He may not have seen it coming, but this Professionals cover definitely hits the spot


Shake a leg: No wonder Tom Jones is smiling


Pop fiction: But can her legs match John Travolta's


The guitar man: This music lover pulled a few strings to emulate Blues star Josh White

There are hundreds, even more inventive ones, on the website ..so get clicking... and if nothing else...you'll be tripping down memory lane when you just see the sleeves and all your past comes flooding back.

Sir Dayvd,

Another one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" ideas. We actually had friends of ours over last night and I introduced them to some Sparks vinyl.

I'll have to check out some covers and create.

Personally, I never thought about doing that with my John Travolta
album.

Lady T. who thinks well enough should rarely be left alone.
