I Read A Book, You Win A Prize

Mark Baumgarten’s Love Rock Revolution: K Records and the Rise of Independent Music is a must read for anyone interested in alternative music before it was ALTERNATIVE MUSIC.

It’s the story of Calvin Johnson, the somewhat quixotic founder of both K Records and Beat Happening, a man so committed to what he was doing that he wouldn’t cave for “corporate ogres” or obnoxious Black Flag fans.

Whether you’re a music fan or someone trying to get your DIY good thing going, Love Rock Revolution is a can’t miss.

Listen, it’s a small book on a small press and I’d love to do my part to help get the word out, so here’s the deal:  I’m going to pass my gently used copy to the winner of today’s quiz.  All I ask in return is that the big winner turn his or her friends on to Baumgarten’s tasty read.

Okay, here’s your question:  The following Mel Ramos painting appears on an album cover somewhere on this site.   Which album?  First right answer gets a free book.
