The great thing about having a blog is that readers often find covers that I haven’t discovered. Super collector Stefan Thull reported that he had recently found a copy of German band Fools Garden‘s album “Who Is Jo King?“, with its “Revolverish” Klaus Voormann cover, on vinyl. I already had the CD, but I had to find copy of the vinyl. It was listed on Discogs, but there wasn’t a copy on sale there, so I took a chance and Googled Fools Garden‘s official site to see if they sold copies. Sure enough! So I ordered it. Apparently there are only 250 copies, so it is quite rare!
Then another of my record collecting friends, Thorsten Knublauch, reported that there was a 7″ single “O, Come All Ye Faithful/Jingle Bells” taken from the Les Humphries Singers‘ album “Seasons Greetings“. I’m not really wild about Christmas carols and songs but the single’s cover is a reduced copy of the Klaus Voormann‘s cover for the LP. The cheapest copies were on Ebay, so I ordered one of those, too. While searching Discogs, I noticed that there are, in fact, two variations of this cover. The one Thorsten told me about (on the left below) was the German pressing, but there was also a Belgian pressing with “Jingle Bells” as the A-side which has a blue cover.
So, that’s three more additions to my collection of Klaus Voormann covers. Now I only need the “Wer nie im Bett programm gemacht” album cover to complete my collection.
If any reader can tip me off on where to find one of these, I’d be able to complete my collection of Klaus Voormann covers.
