Week #14 - Week 2 for Roger's Creative Photography Contest...click on the banner above if you want to learn more and enter or just feel like sliding around the Bloggosphere and checking out some really fantastic photos...

Guess I could have used this yesterday for Ruby Tuesday, but...

This is from August 1982. genesis. This photo is completely untouched. Just as it came out of the camera.

Hope you like it. (click to enlarge)



One more from the mansion...And let me just say, if Matt-Man has not already said it in comments...Barbie Benton is by far the hottest Playmate there ever was!

Canned Heat was one of the hottest jam bands in the day. This is labeled January 20, 1969. The video ends just as it sounds like the band was ending the song.

  2. The photo is great. It could be an album cover!
    While Barbie Benton is certainly in my top three, I think I will have to go with Victoria Principal as No. 1. But then, I never looked at the photos much. I just borrowed my roommate's issue of Playboy so I could read the articles.
    Yep, it was definitely and different place and time in my life.

     
  3. DrillerAA Says:
  4. And as for Canned Heat...you could put this clip in any blues club in America today and it would still be amazing! Probably one of the more under appreciated bands of the day.

     
  5. Turnbaby Says:
  6. That pic is so cool--I love how those unexpected ones can happen.

     
  7. Matt-Man Says:
  8. I will second that. Barbi, in her day, was smokin' hot. And I looove the picture. Cheers Vinny!!

  14. Music From Big Pink!! I LOVE Canned Heat =)

    Is that the freaky ass mother song where Phil does the "ha ha ha" crap in it? Kidlet saw that video and now she fears The Collins.

    And Barbie was awesome. Hugh traded down when he ditched Barbie.

     
  15. Stop it!!! You're killin' me oveah heah!!! Larry Taylor is a maniac! Fito De La Parra cooks!!! I saw Canned Heat in 1969 but I don't remember much....thanks!!!!!!!!!!

     
  16. WOAH! If I were a rock band I'd ask for your permission to use the CP entry for my album cover... but nobody wants to hear me singing *g*

    Great capture, Vinny! Good luck in the contest!
