    Kind of a strange juxtaposition - the elegance of Kraftwerk alongside the pedestrian WHSMITHS, not that it stopped me from buying quite a few vinyls from their branches!

    Unfortunately, very few cared about the ad's message at this point. "Someday Man" was originally the A side. [​IMG]

    THAT should have been the cover because the actual cover was lousy.

    Terrific thread! Keep 'em coming! Are there any other threads with ads like these?

    The first two look like something John and Yoko really might have sent out to record stores to promote the album, you know? :)

    I love the hurricane of puns that is the radio ad at the end of the Rhino bonus disc for that album.

    "There are three kinds of people who love this album: people under 21, people over 21, and people who turn 21 while listening to the record!"

    Screw getting drunk or partying or anything - I've already planned my birthday this year, and that is to be all three of those. That to me is way more important than getting a head start on alcoholism. Guess I'm crazy or something.

    Can't find that on YouTube... will have to upload it in the morning.

    There seems to be a yearly calendar you can buy with old blues record ads... I remember when there was a series of Robert Crumb drawings on cards in little boxes of blues luminaries, late '70s or early '80s (also a poster of the changing look of America in a series of drawings). I should have bought more of that kind of stuff.
