"Shame, Shame, Shame," Shirley and Company (1975)

I bought this album in early 1982 because of one song.

As you can see (if you look closely), I paid $1 for it – at Rasputin Records, on Telegraph Ave. in Berkeley.

The only song I’ve ever listened to is the title track – which is not just one of the great disco singles of all time, but one of the great singles of all time, period.

Over the years, I’ve been tempted to listen to one of the other songs, but never have – and probably never will.

And whether you loved, liked, disliked or just plain hated disco, you’ve got to admit that this is one of the great album covers in the history of rock & pop music.
