Bad Album covers - Count Your Blessings


As well as showing my own work, I also wanted to include in this blog things that inspire me to produce the images that i do. I have basically been hunting down what most would consider tasteless album covers, (although i haven't collected any more at this point.) The cover above is actually one of the few album covers that I have found. While rummaging through the LP section in the local charity shop, I discovered this gem. A religious LP performed by Willie Sutherland (who ever he is, hopefully not the gummy guy with the glasses) featuring songs such as 'who is at my door is standing' and 'it is no secret'. coming from two dodgy looking guys standing in front of a toddler. Still, this cover is so bad that its good, maybe I should actually listen to this to see if it is as bad as the cover... on second thoughts, I think i'll pass.

The one in glasses is the singer, yes. He was blind. He's from Buckie in the North of Scotland.

I bought a copy of this when I lived in Aberdeen just because of the great cover. Too scared to listen to it though

I found this and others at a charity back in 2006-2007ish. i haven't listened to it either (and am a bit scared to hear what it sounds like as well!)

Its kind of a shame that i didn't continue looking for interesting a bad album covers, but maybe at some point in the future i'll pick up where i left off.
