Wow, I wonder how much time I spent listening to the Doobies while I was in high school and college.  I can clearly remember running cross country practices with them playing on my little portable cassette player.  Anyhow, one of the '70s classic FM bands turn in a classic "best of" abum with a cover that combines my affection for diners and jukeboxes.   Near perfect in my narrow worldview.

Classic time piece.  Project 3's marketing department seems to have splurged on this cover concept.  What's a roll of tin foil cost?  $2.00?  Showcasing a cute red head cloaked in tin foil bikini and go-go boots, I'm not sure anything else needs to be said about this cover.
