Thread Name: The worst album cover ever
Subject: RE: The worst album cover ever
One of my favorites had to be the Doors' Strange Days. Circus freaks prowling the street on the cover, and the only mention of the band is a tattered handbill tacked to a door. It was quite a groundbreaking concept at the time.

One of the more interesting...Electric Mud by Muddy Waters. On the cover, Muddy is wearing a barber apron, holding his guitar, and his hair is freshly processed and luxuriant. Inside, Muddy is sitting in a barber chair in the midst of getting his process done, looking into a mirror in which there is also a reflection of a huge, gaudily painted ceramic cobra. Weird, but appropriate.

And be careful with the S___ references, Lonesome Hawk. A word to the wise is sufficient.
