RANKING ROGER – Radical Departure

Ranking Roger’s solo album Radical Departure has a great liner-notes gimmick: all the band members are holding up different numbers of fingers so you can match them with the numbered names printed beneath. The back cover used the same finger photo, and the front cover art is a different picture of Roger with one finger aloft. As Leopold Kronecker said, “God created the integers; all else is the work of man.”

By the way, I like this record better than both the General Public albums (as always, excluding the league-of-its-own “Tenderness”).
