Just keep on flipping through these racks.
Here’s a hilarious gallery of the real worst album covers ever!
It’s a stupid list, because many of these covers are intentionally funny. Those that are unintentionally funny are hilarious or sad (or both), but they should not have been mixed with the purposefully humorous ones.
Oh my, and I thought some of the old London/Decca classical album covers were the worst possible. I do remember that my parents’ friends had many albums of “mood” or “cocktail” music and the covers did tend to look like a “MeToo” movement event was about to unfold.
And my sister was in high school during the worst of that “big hair” era. It was real.
I was interested to see that the Song of the Prune by Frank Crumit is preserved on multiple YouTubes. Evidently it is regarded as a highly collectable 78 rpm!
One album cover I will never forget is one I saw as an impressionable boy. Pictured was a gorgeous, alluring naked gal, half-hidden by the rope hammock in which she was sprawled. I’ll also never forget the title of this cocktail-music collection: “I’m in the Nude for Love.” Shoulda bought it…
Simon Rattle’s “Jazz Album” is still a top contender
“Derek Bell . . . Plays With Himself.”
Here comes the classic division!!
Here are some really bad ones of the classical variety … I mean, the 1812 Overture with a picture of Colonial Williamsburg on the album cover?
Not a ‘worst’ cover but a favorite of mine was an old Westminster recording of Gotterdammerung that had a white cover and two female hands crumbling a cookie.
Die Walkure in that set was even better.
Those Audio Fidelity belly dancing discs used to tickle my fancy….
They inexplicably neglected “You get more Bounce with Curtis Counce”.
