Was last weekâ€™s quiz one born of frustration? Sorry, sometimes I just canâ€™t help it. Did I just give you a clue to one of the album covers in this week’s game? I’ll never tell, but if you’re wise, you’ll check this intro paragraph next week for another non-clue. Just sayin’.
Below are magnified fragments of 25 album covers. Most of them are well-known albums, but there are a few obscure covers (or lesser-known albums from well-known artists) mixed in to keep you honest. You must guess both the artist and album cover. In order to keep things simple, live albums, soundtracks and singles compilations will not be used, and with all apologies to our European and Japanese friends, we are going with the covers that appeared in the US record storesâ€¦back when we had record stores. Sigh.
The rules are the same as Name That Tune. Each player can make three guesses between updates (â€œUpdateâ€ is defined as â€œThe time when I post a comment listing all of the covers that have been guessed correctlyâ€), so everyone will have a chance to contribute. And, just to spice things up, we have a puzzle cover this week, yay! One guess per player of the puzzle between updates, please. Ready, Freddys and Bettys? Time to rock steady.
Lastly, hereâ€™s the puzzle cover.
Like Scraps, I suggest subscribing to the comments on the post (click on â€œTrack Commentsâ€) to more easily follow the progress of the game. Remember, maximum of three guesses between updates of the list. Have fun!
