what’s wrong with being sexy?

Can you believe this fucking cover? I’ve don’t own nor have I heard this album so I’ll let this guy tell you what it’s like (I found his blog while looking for info on this record and while I’ve yet to read much of it, it seems like a good idea). But look at that fucking cover: Some random seventies rock and roll dude being stalked by two teen-aged cheerleaders one of whom looks nearly feral.

This record mustn’t have been too much of an obscurity upon its release as it was produced by Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks and Egan’s follow-up LP scored a decent-sized hit with Magnet and Steel. If while looking at this cover you wondered what was going to happen next between Walter Egan and the two cheerleaders, the back cover tells the tale:
