Somehow, it seemed the right time to post this album to my Vinyl LP series!

This posting only contains my photos of images from the 1976 album, The Third Reich 'n Roll, by The Residents. If you want information, there are links for it.  

The Third Reich 'n Roll consists of two suites; Swastikas On Parade and Hitler Was A Vegetarian. Both are 'semi-phonetic' interpretations of Top 40 Rock 'n' Roll from the 60s. Things just keep coming back again.
