Huey Lewis and the News: Fore!

Huey Lewis and the News: Fore!..via Photomerg - I made this picture blending the front and back covers of this album.  When a single record album does not have a hinge and folds open, like this one, it is fun to stitch the front and back covers together.  "Fore! is the fourth album by American rock band Huey Lewis and the News, released in 1986 (see 1986 in music). The album hit number one on the Billboard 200 album chart and contained five top-ten Billboard Hot 100 singles, including the number-one hits: "Stuck with You" and "Jacob's Ladder."  The wall that Lewis and the members of the band stand against on the album's cover is a wall from Tamalpais High School in Mill Valley, California.  Band members Huey Lewis, Bill Gibson, Sean Hopper and Mario Cipollina all went to this school together.  The album cover for Fore! is seen in the movie, American Psycho, starring Christian Bale.  Bale's character, Patrick Bateman, goes on to have a nearly one minute discussion regarding the band and how "Hip to Be Square", espousing "the pleasures of conformity", was a follow up to the mainstream hit "The Power of Love."  He incorrectly states that the album came out in 1987 when, in actuality, it came out in September 1986."  From wiki.
