I'm completely left off the credits for my latest release. Every other asshole in the band gets their name on the inner sleeve. Not me. It even says the lead singer and guitarist plays drums on the whole thing!!

What's the matter with those fuckers? Should I quit the fucking stupid band?

Or should I just read this thread and accept that "it happens to the best of us"?

Hey - it happened to Drumbo on Trout Mask Replica.

(I think that was intentional, though, so maybe I shouldn't bring it up.)

The new Kate Bush remasters has, rather poorly, decided the first album is called "The Kick Insde"......

No on the spine of the vinyl. I'll see if I can upload a photo.

The back cover of the US Rolling Stones album 12x5 has "Congratulations" spelled "Congradulations" (though they got it right on the label). The misspelling has carried through to the current CD, but that may have been deliberate.
