    Led Zeppelin Houses Of The Holy

    Blind Faith

    I will not post the pictures here because I find the child nudity to be highly offensive and completely unnecessary and not at all artistic.

    Snopes actually has a long ass thread debating whether or not this is actually a real album that you can read here. The general consensus seemed to be fake at first, which is kind of amazing considering I’ve seen this all over the internet at some time or another, but then the album showed up in an Ebay auction. The good people at Snopes then did some digging and Ken is apparently now a pastor in Iowa. Spurred by the success of the earlier Ebay auction, Ken is now unloading his personal copies of “By Request Only”. His daughter even chimes into the Snopes thread. I love the internet sometimes.
    The Snopes thread:

    And Ken himself:

    I remember reading about this a few months back and really digging the story, I've seen a ton of these worst album covers things and always wondered about the backstories.

    It would be cool to see the Ken "By Request Only" album track listing.

    Who is requesting these songs?

    At the time, I thought this was very far-out.

    This pretentious, ponderous collection of religious rock psalms inspires the question: on which day did God create Spinal Tap and couldn't He have rested then too?

    Thanks, Chip, for dusting off the copy. I'm sure that wasn't easy to find in the garage, so much appreciated!!!

    Although "Cherokee" from that album ranks pretty high on the list of Worst Songs...

    I had to stop looking after this one. It melted my eyes. And my libido.

    It occurred to me that the model probably would be about the same age as the ladies in the spoof cover. She is 60 years old now.

    Hey, cool - I think all musicians should put their home phone numbers on the bottom left-hand corner of the back of the album.


    I also have that Herb Albert album.

    The album says, "By Request Only." How else are you going to request it?
