I like XTC's Go2, just black with a whit typewriter font saying
Quote:
This is a RECORD COVER. This writing is the DESIGN upon the
record cover. The DESIGN is to help SELL the record. We hope
to draw your attention to it and encourage you to pick it up.
when you have done that maybe you'll be persuaded to listen to
the music - in this case XTC's Go 2 album. Then we want you
to BUY it. The idea being that the more of you that buy this
record the more money Virgin Records, the manager Ian Reid and
XTC themselves will make. To the aforementioned this is known
as PLEASURE. A good cover DESIGN is one that attracts more
buyers and gives more pleasure. This writing is trying to pull
you in much like an eye-catching picture. It is designed to get
you to READ IT. This is called luring the VICTIM, and you are the
VICTIM. But if you have a free mind you should STOP READING
NOW! because all we are attempting to do is to get you to read
on. Yet this is a DOUBLE BIND because if you indeed stop you'll
be doing what we tell you, and if you read on you'll be doing what
we've wanted all along. And the more you read on the more you're
falling for this simple device of telling you exactly how a good
commercial design works. They're TRICKS and this is the worst
TRICK of all since it's describing the TRICK whilst trying to
TRICK you, and if you've read this far then you're TRICKED but
you wouldn't have known this unless you'd read this far. At
least we're telling you directly instead of seducing you with
a beautiful or haunting visual that may never tell you. We're
letting you know that you ought to buy this record because in
essence it's a PRODUCT and PRODUCTS are to be consumed and you
are a consuer and this is a good PRODUCT. We could have
written the band's name in special lettering so that it stood
out and you'd see it before you'd read any of this writing and
possibly have bought it anyway. What we are really suggestion
is that you are FOOLISH to buy or not buy an album merely as a
consequence of the design on its cover. This is a con because
if you agree then you'll probably like this writing - which is
the cover design - and hence the album inside. But we've just
warned you against that. The con is a con. A good cover design
could be considered as one that gets you to buy the record, but
that never actually happens to YOU because YOU know it's just a
design for the cover. And this is the RECORD COVER.

The video I saw has her waking up in bed in a kind of white sheet thing then climbing around the outside of her building to another room where the rest of the band are playing.

Wow...the assembled music tastes are starting to become much clearer now that I see everyone's first album.
Sigh...I guess I have a confession to make...

Thanks for the link, Bob.
Had read about those days but hadn't seen pictures of what it looks like.

BGH, as long as it wasn't an 8track tape- I think you'll be okay.

(hahahahahaaa, ABBA!)

No...I'm just young enough to have by-passed 8 track. Though my roomie in college got hold of one and a big box of 8 tracks.
I'm still trying to find a decent turntable to play all my old records on, myself.

My favourite album art, hmmm, that is a tricky one however - I usually pay more attention to the music than the album so I couldn't tell you, will take some thinking about...

I've been to the Indra some weeks ago, to show Finn Willi. He thinks as the Beatles are just comic charaters because he had seen the Yellow Submarine movie. We live near the Reeperbahn, so when we went to see the infamous Indra. The smell of piss was so horrible we had to take our bikes and to flee back into the civilized part of Hamburg. They got a metal plate mentioning the Beatles, saying something like "the first step to an international career". The success of the Beatles was far smaller than the smell.
I guess that tells me something, but I don't know what
