Actually, this one is quite good. The guy must have been a "Weird Al" of his day...definitely a parody of the Tijuana Brass cover:

OMG :D

 

The Village People meet Visage...Beat the crap out of tooth decay...The Price is Right, "scientifically sung by Claudia Wheeler"...

 

Watch out regarding the forum rules with the Kingsley record cover... (He's the guy who gave us "Popcorn").

That Elton John cover isn't bad.

 

Hey, you can see wacky and tacky album covers by the truckload...just go to your local flea market.

 

What are some of your favorite album covers? Some of mine are Roger Dean's artwork for Yes, among others.

Well...in a way, that reinforces my suspicion. I would have placed it as a comic parody album...but, comedy had to be in there somewhere.

Yep, I bought that album at Goodwill for the cover art alone!! I didn't really like the music, so I might just frame it and put it on the wall. :)

What gets me about most all of these covers is: I always wonder where these people are now. I mean, are the Louvin Brothers signing over their car dealership to their grandsons this year, or did they set themselves on fire when their record sales hit 666 copies?

 

What about the Braillettes? Any of them still alive? And the girl on the cover of the 'Enoch Light" abum, or the Chick Willis LP; do they look back and go "Awjeezopete, I am SO embarrased I did that!!"

 

Another thing I think about is that someone actually saw the proofs of these things and APPROVED THEM for release.

Well, except the Braillettes...they probably had to just 'feel' it was okay...

I've upped my standards; now, up yours.

NO WAY does 'Trout Mask Replica' have any business being included among "shitty album covers".

 

The Doors???

 

Breakfast In America???

 

Peter Tosh should get a special exemption JUST for being Peter Tosh!

 

I've always wondered how that Blind Faith album cover EVER got past whoever it had to get past to make it onto the record store shelves. You can get arrested for even thinking about taking pictures of topless twelve year old girls!

Even more bizzare...where do you find a twelve year old girl willing to pose for the picture!?!?!? I can just imagine what the boys at her school thought! :eek:

 

I guess The Shaggs belong in there. But I always thought that they were 'Bad', in a good way...

 

Jackie Gleason gets a pass because he was apparently cool enough to get Salvador Dali to do his album cover!

http://www.heavy.com/diesel2/covers/cover115.jpg

 

Oh, very clever!

http://www.heavy.com/diesel2/covers/cover367.jpg

 

This one has GOT to be a joke!

http://www.heavy.com/diesel2/covers/cover388.jpg

 

Snoop Dogg's first album cover should have been in there. I don't know why it just came into my mind.

 

It's tough to beat those Gospel singer album covers. Those really deserve a catagory all to themselves.

 

They should have picked on more Heavy Metal albums.
