Not unknown Roxyfact: The girl in the black knickers on the front of Country Life is the sister of Can's Michael Karoli.

One of my favourite memories from recent times is drunkenly fogging up a friend's front room with a borrowed smoke machine and smooching with ma femme to Dance Away.

A friend of mine admitted to having gotten so turned on by a tiny reproduction of this album cover on an Atlantic Records inner sleeve that it became one of his preferred wank-aids. "Man," I told him, "that's like jacking off to a postage stamp."

This would make an excellent early elimination round challenge in my TV show concept, "The Fucking Olympics."

Didn't I say that the one on the left was really fine? I didn't? damn. Ok, now I said it. That girl on the left is really hot.

That girl on the right is just...weird looking. Maybe it's just way too much eye makeup?

Ms. Karoli is infinitely hotter--and it's not just the big nose.

I'm pretty sure Michael Karoli bedded Uschi Obermaier once. He wins, everything.

not crap for the following reasons:

1. s/t is very very good,
2. for your pleasure is better
3. the cover of country life
4. steve's description of and of the uses of ferry's voice, which even applies to solo tracks such as "slave to love." i almost got a lot of action back in high school using bryan ferry's voice.
Records for sale.

Old record store owners seem to love this sh!t.
Not me.
I gave 3 diff. LP's full listens.
Other than a few measures here & there, it's bad strange.

I have done this to the full-sized LP on probably 10 occasions.

If anyone happens to have the digitized "Foolproof" I would appreciate a conversation via PM.

Not Crap with the exception of Manifesto and Flesh + Blood but including Avalon and the Ferry solo stuff.

(full disclosure) Also a Steely Dan fan but find the two unconnected.

I think the issue is that she is a lot scarier than the other young woman.

Like maybe she would tear off some of you. In a bad way.

It's a great album cover. Cheeky title, those naughty guys.

I never understood why they put a fucking falconer on the front of the last record. Totally perverse.

That's what did it for me. The imagined menage-a-trois that would psycho-sexually damage but be totally worth it. She looks like she'd enjoy horribly degrading you in front of the cute tart...let you clumsily enjoy her then finish her off correctly.

Of course, with 20 years of wisdom since the Country Life self-violations... Oh, who am I kidding. (off to find the LP in question) (realizes that I currently own the censored cover) (Google Image Search ho!)

SecondEdition, I must apologize as it turns out I have been misinformed about this for years. After checking with someone who would know, it transpires that Eveline Grunwald is on the right after all and, further to that, she was Karoli's wife. His sister on the left is called Constanze Karoli.

I suspect that you have not seen Trouble Every Day.

1. Putting a gruesome photo on this nice thread; and
2. Putting a whiff of the Gallo(w)s on this nice thread.
