The Addicts! Sing!

Ok, I've shown you albums by Celebrities, Musicans, and The Mentally Insane, to name a few, but here is the strangest. The Addicts Sing was a bizarre concept from the start. 9 former Heroin Addicts + Musicial Ability [or lack of it] = A Hit Record [Or so they thought.] In terms of information about the group, they WERE nine former heroin addicts, who were released from jail, and decided to sings their tales of the life of a junkie. It was released in 1965, and the whereabouts of The Addicts are unknown. The back cover may have the weirdest part of all, an illustration of a hand about to inject a needle into themself. Strange, man, strange.
