    Like the book, the reason should be obvious-

    I don’t really like the songs in For Your Pleasure, for me it wasn’t one of their better efforts. I like some of their early stuff, but think they got better over time. I like their concert video On the High Road and Bryan Ferry’s solo album Boys and Girls.

    But that album cover is certainly alluring-

    I remember as a teenager in my favorite record store I always avoided Cannibal Corpse's LPs... I even disliked their music because of their covers, never wanted to listen to them, even having a friend that was fan of them. hahaha.

    The lady on the cover? The lovely Amanda Lear. Though I'm not into the music she did in the 70's, I admit she is an interesting person, very charismatic and striking. She started out as a model and muse of Salvador Dali, hung out with David Bowie, then embarked on a disco queen career, before retiring into the quite life.

    Bowie and Amanda doing outtakes for some stage show- exotic voice


    I like this relatively candid photo of her later in life-- but then again I like gingers-

    Black Sabbath had some of the worst album covers ever.

    Dickens that Paranoid is bad

    Journey albums look worse than they sound which is quite miraculous.

    18D35F7B-0F44-4CB1-8863-46DF4461F381.jpeg Storm Thurgenson et al. of Hipgnosis made some interesting covers-

    I also like these covers that ‘Funky Paul Olsen did for Trower-
