Crate Minds: Yimmy Yayo

We let taste maker and champion blogger, Yimmy Yayo take over Modular People for a post and let him delve a little deeper into his musical past. The subject, a few crates of hand-me-down records.

"Seeing as most of my own albums are probably floating around Brisbane somewhere at the moment, I thought I'd work with the collection passed down to me by my mother."

Cat Stevens - Teaser and the Firecat

"Incredibly iconic illustration. Unforgettable."

Dire Straits - Dire Straits

"Not the famous powder blue & baby pink Brothers in Arms image, but this cover reflects the mood of the album to a T I think."

ELO - Greatest Hits

"Epic album. Epic band. Epic Cover. I wish I had this badge in real life."

Eurythmics - Revenge

"Check out here eyes!! Bitch is all evil and coming for your children/heart/wallet."

Fleetwood Mac - Self Titled

"Kind of kooky and arty, but who else could pull of the old knees in shoe joke to such a perfect extent?"

Led Zepplin - Led Zepplin IV

"One of the coolest features (design wise) of this album is the iconography added on the labelling (not actually designed onto the cover). Oh and the legendary foldout you'd all know (Or I assume you would so I didn't shoot it)."

Michael Jackson - Thriller (with foldout)

"Dudes got a baby tiger, a white suite and the greatest album of all time; nothing more to say."

Talking Heads - Little Creatures

"I remember looking at this for hours as a kid finding new details and things i missed the 28th time around. David Byrne is a god."

Honourable Mention - Jethro Tull - The Best of Jethro Tull Pt. II

"Have you ever seen a dude in such an epic metal pose in medieval get-up with a flute? Me either. Definition of 'Rock Flautist'."
