These fantastic LP covers belong to a range of religious records issued from the Mercier Press in Cork. All covers by Cor Klaasen, except the last one below (John Skelton). I was very happy to find a dozen of these in a Dublin charity shop recently.

Competition: The first person who posts the correct answer to question below via the reply/comment on this post will win a copy of the featured Lightening our Burden album.

Q. in 1979 who wrote and sang the song ‘The Idea’ which contained the following lyrics?

I could be religious if …
you didn’t have to kneel down

I could be religious if …
a god would say “hello”

I could be religious if …
an angel touched my shoulder

I could be religious if …
they set the hymns to disco

    • Yes, Adam Ant is it. The Idea from Dirk wears White Sox. I’ll email you Emmet so that I can get album to you. Congratulations! Shop is on Aungier St. Not one of the charity big ones (oxfam, SVP) I dont know what it is called . they had a batch from this Religious series and I bought any that had cover designs.
