The J. Geils Band is not smart.

A couple weeks ago Dan & I went to a record store to check the place out. The idea was to decorate our white walls with LP's that had illustrated covers. It worked out well. Jimi Hendrix, Moody Blues, Steve Winwood, and the J. Geils Band were some of the artists purchased. Here's our sexy interior decorating outcome:

From left to right: Steve Winwood - Talking Back to the Night, Jimi Hendrix - The Cry of Love, Wha-Koo - Berkshire, J. Geils Band - Live! Full House, Moody Blues' The Present and In Search of the Lost Chord. Some really cool illustrations on the last 2 Moody Blues covers. Anyways, let's take a closer look at the J. Geils Band LP.

Hmmm. Bright. Vibrant. Yellow.

A closer look. You tell me what's wrong with this picture.

Is there something I'm missing? Is the J. Geils band this stupid, or is there a hidden meaning here? Playing a joke on the fans? I'm lost. If anyone has info on this, let me know. If you still haven't figured it out - I'm not going to tell you.

Weeeeeeeell, it ain't a full boat, it's a set. Since I'm old enough to remember when that album came out, I've been racking my brain to see if I remember anything about "hidden clues", ala, "the Walrus is Paul"...but I can't. Yet, somehow, I can't help but think this is deliberate...

Ok- 1) As you state you truly are a dense 20- something
2) It's an inside joke. Poker players who cheat try pass off a hand like that as a full house much like a four-flusher would pass off 4 diamonds and a heart as a flush. No hidden meanings. If you want I'll be glad to buy item from you. I'd love to hang it in my office on the wall.

Yes-this is true-the inside poker player's joke, with The J. Geils Band inferring that if you picked up on this you would actually be a truly hip insider in on the whammer jammer.
