Roger Comments: That “dying sun” looks rather moonlike.
Published 1979

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 8.16 out of 10)

    “You idiots, it’s supposed to be called A Dead Good Dancer!”

    A Dead God Dancing to Songs of the Dancing Gods

  3. Tag Wizard Says:

    I scored a dancing tag hat trick here:
    dance fever
    interpretive dance
    the no pants dance

  4. Ray P Says:

    You can dance if you want to
    You can leave your fears behind
    But if you paint a cover like this
    Then you’re no friend of mine

    @B’mancer, I was going with Safety Dance, but her perch looks rather precarious…

  6. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Damn, RayP beat me to it. Uh…

    Star of the hircine scene?

    ♫ Dancing in the moonlight
    Everybody’s mullet looks a fright
    Not a lady razor in sight
    A Dead God Dancing in in the moonlight ♫

    So Madonna is going to acquire a pelt of fur sometime in the near future. Can’t wait.

    Eh, Ms. Maxwell, Hal Foster’s estate just called, the have some questions about those Prince Valiant™ haircuts?

  10. Tat Wood Says:

    It looks as if their source for this ancient rite was ‘Ride a White Swan’ by T Rex. It fits the lyrics, although their interpretation of the line ‘wear your hair long, babe you can’t go wrong’ isn’t what most people would have done.

  11. Anna T. Says:

    The dancing albino woman is unusually hirsute for a damsel on a cover of this kind. Are we absolutely certain she’s the same species as the humans watching?

  12. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘Get off stage, Diana!’

    ‘I’m not ON stage. I’m OFF stage. Now I’m ON stage. Now I’m not. Now I’m on stage again…’

  13. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    I’ll have a guess that’s Diri dancing before Syza and Lthar on Tal-Lith, Planet of the Abominable Names.

  14. JuanPaul Says:

    Put your jazz hands in the air
    Wave ’em round like you really don’t care

  15. B. Chiclitz Says:

    It’s a yeti, with a yoni
    and they all are underneath a dying sun.
    She’s so very hairy that it’s scary
    and the outworlders ain’t having too much fun

    It’s a legend that’s being freshened
    with Prince Valiant haircuts touched up after lunch.
    It might appear to be a Dead God Dancing
    but here it just inspires the witty bunch. 🎵🎶

    After a night of watching He-Man cartoons and Bugs Bunny in drag, the art director hits upon his zaniest marketing ploy yet!

  17. Ray P Says:

    Definitely a Kate Bush music video. “It’s me, catty, I’ve come home now”

  18. JuanPaul Says:

    It took me a while, but I knew that furry reminded me of something

  19. RachelJ Says:

    @Juan Paul. Well, I thought she looked familiar too, but then I realised I was thinking of another member of the troupe.

  20. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Remove the ugly title fonts and the wordy blurb, and you get a charmingly batty dream image.

  21. Tom Hering Says:

    “Uh, sorry Exterminators, but Zardoz is busy. So I’m here to dance and speak for him. Now, about that “penis is evil” nonsense [wink wink] …”

  22. classicOz Says:

    What the audience is really after is the hair of the God.
