    yo that cover is dope !

    I been looking on ebay ( spit spit ) i've only found one, it's got a different cover and is a US pressing on a different label,

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/PHIL-UPCHURCH-LP-S...1QQcmdZViewItem

    i'm thinking it must be a Re-issue,i'm not even sure if it's the same album, i think it is
    Upchurch is the one produced by John Tropea and George Benson ?

    covers still quite cool, not as dope as that on cadet !
    contacted the dude but in good ebay style he hasn't got back to me...yet. apologies for my stupidity on this, there is so much still to learn in the world of wax !

    that's a later album, the one you want is from about '69.
    It's about $40-50 or so last I checked

    This record is crazy, I thought it was a joke at first since my army dj buddy stationed in Germany said it's dime a dozen there. I'm guessing they didn't officially license the songs lol
