Hunky Dory

Hunky Dory. David Bowie. 1971.

The bookends of Bowie’s heyday. Does anyone know what’s up with the stickers over the RCA logos? I don’t want to brag but I bought these in a cut-out bin in Tokyo if that helps.

Scary Monsters

Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps). 1980.

Pink Flag

More of a stamp than a sticker, but a warning to sensitive listeners that the language on Field Day for the Sundays gets a little rough.

Pink Flag. Wire. 1977.

HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I. Michael Jackson. 1995.

Some previous owner of my copy of this box set tried his best to pry the stickers off of the cover but thankfully didn’t succeed. The second one was added to the cover of the included booklet after controversy arose around the lyrical content of the song They Don’t Care About Us (which is a total banger, by the way). It’s incredible it wouldn’t have occurred to Michael or anyone around him that the lyric, “Jew me, sue me, everybody do me/Kick me, kike me, don’t you black or white me”, wouldn’t have attracted some heat. But Mike was having a bad couple of years.
