Herbie Mann - Push Push (1971)

The combination of a phallic flute with a naked, oiled up, exceptionally hairy man just leaves me speechless. He seems to be beckoning to me, like the Pied Piper if he frequented Turkish bath houses, beckoning me to come with him into his 70s love den so we can push, push.

Of course, he could've concievably been doing this to attract women, but last I checked most women don't go for the "I worked up a sweat then rolled my upper body around in barber shop clippings" look.

Have you seen the inner sleeve too? A naked female body in orange velvet - with flute of course...I love the album, by the way.

The inner sleeve is more than just a naked female body. There's a naked male too, and they're going at it, missionary style.

I remember getting this album for my birthday long ago. I couldn't tell exactly what the image in orange velvet was, so i passed the album around the room to all my aged and straitlaced aunts and uncles. Not one of them claimed to know what it was. LIARS!
