Bad Album Covers

   I really miss the demise of the vinyl LP, not because of the fidelity of the sound but because of the art on the record cover. With CDs, the artwork was shrunken to miniscule size and when you buy music on the Internet, you're lucky to even get a jpeg. Of course, not all LP cover art was good. The blank canvas of the album cover led many musicians to take esthetic risks with their latest release. I would love to have seen the session where the following artists selected the concept for their record art.

All Hail the Disco Puppetmaster

No, but I know His Evil Puppet

Those darn holy socks!

Heading for obscurity

Heading for Hawaii

Toilet humor is so juvenile.

Everyone loves a good cockfight.

Fighting chickens is so romantic

Riding without a saddle takes guts

No Comment

I wish I could see this act!

Possession is 9/10ths of the law

Lord, give me the strength to demolish these bricks

Takes a licking and keeps on ticking

If you can read this, you must be high.

  1. I so hope you don't own any of these albums. Love your comments, especially the one, "posession is 9/10ths of the law." It really made me laugh out loud.
