    Nothing against the model necessarily (was she also one of the girls on the cover of Lou Donaldson's Pretty Things?), but the photo itself looks like a fading Polaroid. Blue Note's cover art kinda went downhill in the '68-70 period. Was their graphic department on strike during those years?



    I don't like this cover either, for the same reason as the Lee Morgan, but hey, it is called Just As I Am, right? If ole boy wants to have a washed-out pic of himself during lunch break at his day gig, who are we to kick?

    I kinda think it's hilarious, in a tongue-in-cheek kinda way, how the cover implies that we're supposed to be peeping through the keyhole at this woman!

    I agree, disturbing

    Yeah, i usually like them tongue-in-cheek covers, but this one is just really bad.

    And to answer The_Non, of course there are far worse covers but i was just trying to think of one in my own collection. But do you really like the cover-art?
    Different strokes i guess..

    Well, uh, erm, um, not the artistic merit, you got me there.

    I forgot about that! Nothing particularly bad about that cover, but that one and Rap-O Clap-O both fell under the "Is My Boyfriend Gay?" category:

    I love this one.

    for straight ugly, not much is fuckin' with a dramatic experience:



    I believe the album is about the evils of drugs (correct if wrong...) but, still...that is one ugly cover.



  • This unnerves the shit out of me, so is one of my least favourite covers of all time. It's not his nose into the pipe thing, it's the look on his face,

    that's a magritte painting!

    That makes it no less unnerving. His expression typifies 'uh-oh I shouldn't have done the extra half and it's all going to get a lot weirder very soon'

    Thanks for the info though, after googling, I have put a name I knew to paintings I knew of but didn't know who they were by, so cheers.



  • How can you hatt that?!

    haha, exactly what i was thinking. thick naked women on album covers are almost always a good look.

    OOH OOH OOH!

    What's that one funky-loungey early '70s album on Warner Bros. (UK only), with a grainy cover where the guy's got this expression on his face like he's about to die? His name is Johnny something-or-other and I think the LP is called Movements? IIRC, one of the tracks appears on the recent What It Is! funk box on Rhino? Well, anyway, that album cover sucks too

    You're talking about Johnny Harris i think. I like that cover. I think it's based on the movie Fragment of Fear.

    possibly the only person in a magritte painting i ever saw where it wasnt the back of somebodys head (well, now i see WHY magritte never painted faces from the front!)

    This is my all time least favorite. So so so bad. I can hardly believe it's real (and if someone wants to prove to me that it's not real, I would be very grateful).
