"About 35 or 40 hand-drawn and hand-painted album covers made between 1969 and 1976, some complete with fake cardboard records inside them. Apparently some guy who called himself 'Mingering Mike' put together all of these albums as if he were the musician.
"The covers are complete with hand-drawn barcodes, track listings, lyrics, drawings of the band(s), and in some cases, liner notes. He did soul and funk albums and blaxploitation soundtracks (for movies that never existed), and even a christmas album!"

Update: Tom says, "This thread has been removed from Soulstrut because of concerns about releasing too much personal information on Mingering Mike and to protect his privacy. There should be some form of a more permanent display of his amazing work at some point in the future, although plans are somewhat nebulous at this point."
