I've really enjoyed having all my favorite music from the CD's we own now on my new iPod. One of the features I haven't taken advantage of yet is to download the artwork from the covers from iTunes.
The CD covers got me thinking about an e-mail I received recently that had some of the most ghastly LP album covers. Below are two dozen of what I think have to be among the worst album covers ever made! (Actually there are many that are even worse, but I would not include them on my blog.) Of course, by virtue of the fact that these are album jackets for LP records, that already dates them - you'll definitely note some looks of by-gone eras. Some of these people obviously didn't ask close friends or family if they should go with the picture they'd chosen.
I'm posting most of the album covers without comment. Some of the album jackets are immediately hilarious, but for others, you will have to look at carefully to see why they are just plain wrong! Some that I have included are not necessarily for the faint-hearted, though, so be forewarned! Scroll on at your own risk!
In the one below (I'll translate the German), this album by Heino is called "Dear Mother... a bouquet that never withers." Then in the little blue circle, it says, "A gift for the whole year"
