No. 48: The Frivolous Five – 50 Worst Album Covers
‘Sour Cream and Other Delights’
This cover art and album concept is a parody of/ tribute to Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass album, ‘Whipped Cream & Other Delights‘, which featured a sexy 60s brunette, Dolores Erickson, covered in nothing but whipped cream licking her finger. That album sold more than 6 million copies and the cover is widely considered a classic pop culture icon. There’s no doubt it’s one of the best album covers we’ve ever seen.
The Frivolous Five’s, on the other hand, has women IN their 60s and older covered in sour cream. As grossed out as we are, we’re curious to know about these “other delights.” Still, we’d rather eat that German comedian’s Hawaiian meat loaf.
