Album Cover

Hindu Love Gods is the only album by American band Hindu Love Gods, featuring Warren Zevon, released on October 5, 1990. The album was recorded around the same time as Warren Zevon's album Sentimental Hygiene, for which Zevon had enlisted Bill Berry, Peter Buck, and Mike Mills of R.E.M. as players. The musicians also recorded this set of cover versions, reputedly during a late night drunken recording session. The recordings were not originally intended for release. It was recorded at Record One, Sherman Oaks, California and A&M Studios, Los Angeles in 1987. The album is noted for its modestly popular cover of Prince's "Raspberry Beret" and as such was included on I'll Sleep When I'm Dead (An Anthology) and Genius: The Best of Warren Zevon.
