An afro is born...

In 1976, when this came out, for the life of me I couldn't figure out why they weren't wearing shirts. I also couldn't figure out why Barbra got that afro....

This album cover made me nervous, in a tingly kind of way. I was also a little freaked by Leon Russell's album with his zexy afro wife...

Aw, the dawn of perms.

I had the biggest incestuous, dadcrush on Kris Kristopherson.

Scandy: I'm not aware of that one.

Freida: I hope the perm fad is finally dead... although everything eventually comes back.
Like the flu..

You know, Elvis was offered the part Kris Kristoferson had. The evil Colonel Parker made him turn it down because it was a washed-up singer.

I didn't know that. But if elvis had taken the role, in 1976, i'm not sure anyone would have wanted to see him on the cover of this album with no shirt on...

Was she supposed to be hot or an acquired taste?

joe said...

Hmmm, I'm not sure..

anne altman said...

i recall staring at that album forever too! always wondered how babs got such hot guys. she's got a look.

joe said...

I'm not sure how she did it either, but having the right casting director probably had alot to do with it.. well and the fact that she's stinking rich...

I really liked that movie but hated the sad ending. Only Kris could do that role.

joe said...

He died, right?? I didn't see this.

Charmed said...

He is really, really, really gross.

*imagines a shirtless Elvis circa 1976*

I just can't see that being a big selling point.

I've heard that some news anchors wear casual stuff like shorts and flip-flops behind the news desk. I think it would be funny if Kris and Babs were wearing Bermuda shorts and Toe Socks during the photo shoot.

joe said...

Charmed: Who, Kris or Elvis..

Hairball: How ironic, i was thinking about posting toe socks one of these days.

Keith said...

I know what you mean.

joe said...

What, about the afro?? or the fact that they're naked?????
