Dr. Dallas F. Billington - This Is Your Funeral (1966)
This pretty morbid, almost a memento mori in LP form. You have to wonder at the wording used in the title; why this is your funeral if you are a Christian? Is this supposed to imply that a pagan funeral would be full of drunken debauchery and wild sex parties that are a horrible affront to God and Jesus? Or is the album's title actually a threat, and Dr. Dallas is actually a rogue atheist professor whose goal in life is to slay all believers of Christianity?
Whatever the case may be, one fact remains: those curtains are fucking ugly.
