Ohio Players – Fire (1974)

Perhaps the more visually literate Thrifty Vinyl readers can explain what, if any, symbolism is implied by this image on the cover of the Ohio Players Fire Lp of a wet, naked woman is sensuously grasping and thrusting upwards a long, steamy fireman’s hose.

  1. Two posts in a row that have hit my teenage hotspot. The covers of course, but these two bands had a lot to do with my enduring love of soul and funk and both these albums I have owned for….ever.

  2. Despite my place of birth, Ohio, I’ve never owned an Ohio Players record! Go figure. Though I do own Columbus band RC Mob’s cover of “Lover Rollercoaster”. This is a really good record with only the last track, “Hell”, descending into bad Funkadelic noise conceit.
