    Default Crappy redesigned sleeves for records that didn't need a redesign

    Recently picked up a very very cheap copy of the Monkees Head, a few tracks of which I'm very fond of (Porpoise Song etc), but the front cover is an abomination. I think I might get an artist friend to paint over it.

    Here it is:



    See what I mean?

    Any other offenders you'd care to mention? I'm thinking of an LP that was re-issued recently with a kid's drawing of the band on the front. Execrable cover, you know who you are!

    Looks like they want to cash in on Fame fame.

    I'm too lazy to post up the picture but I hate the 1972 UK reissue of The Appletree Theatre LP (and I own the reissue).

    I'd forgotten about this:

    original


    reissue, not a little scary:


    sometimes it's hard to remember the music is the same ...

    At the office, so no pics, but the cover of the alternative pressing from 9th Creation - Bubblegum with a new cover and new name, although they did come out the same year..

    I actually like it when it's obvious it's a later issue. And I like artists' faces on sleeves.

    I like different sleeves for euro pressings as well.

    I remember they did this with Approved By The Motors.



    Apparently the boys were considered too grim looking and off-putting to capitalize on the Airport hit.
    So they quickly re-released it with an anonymous picture with some windscreen wipers.

    And at least over here, the MOT guys would not have approved of that wiper leaving a streaky film on the windscreen.

    To make matters even worse - the Hallmark issue has the dreaded "electronically reproduced Stereo" effect applied

    As mentioned on another thread. Look at this wonderful piece of art. What's not to like?

    This one was designed by my fave French chanteuse Leonie (of 'Les Gants Blancs Du Diable' fame) when she worked in the Arts Department of 'Discs Somethin' Else'...



    ...while this one was designed by no-one....

    you can hear colours when they rhyme...

    Interesting players on the Tony Bennett. Does it deliver?

    That Appletree Theatre reish has a certain tacky charm.
    Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

    Even a thing in the world of comedy records, and in particular the world of Roy Hudd

    From 1965, Roy Hudd - Hudd Dunnit!:



    And the World Record Club reissue:



    From 1976, Roy Hudd ‎– This Is My Bag!:



    And nine years later, shorn of its teabag references (political correctness gone mad):

    Oh dear! That's terrible!

    Most of the early Shakin' Stevens & the Sunsets albums were reissued after Shaky's solo fame with pretty boy pictures of Shaky and none of the band. The upside is that the reissues cost next to nothing.

    The LP above reminds me of a horrendous Doors CD comp. I wonder if I'm allowed to post that on this thread (it's not a re-designed cover but I guarantee it'll make you wonder
