No the chick was talking about the difference of liking the artwork or just the idea. I was saying that I like The Ramones album cover. But it is no artwork, just them standing up against wall, brilliant.
The artwork on Cream is just what I call a beauty. Supergroup what ever. Their fucking rocking. Ginger Baker has different style. And this is before Clapton started to be be a fucking wanker.
Oh man, don't get me started on this - I'll have to come back later.
Let me just ask, do you mean ever ever, or just rocknroll albums?
Two of my faves are also two of my favorite LPs.
"The Psychedelic Sounds of The 13th Floor Elevators" - The Mono version , printed in beautiful , near - flourescent colors , making the Stereo version's sleeve look like a rush job.
The reissue on Sundazed looks very close to the original.
Blue Cheer "Vincebus Eruptum" - Of any album cover I can think of , this comes closest to some of the best West Coast Rock poster art of it's day. Perforated lettering and patterned blobs and circles , with silver and dark blue - violet inks , and , yes , the boys look like they were tripping for the photo shoot. This is'nt a sick joke , but , I heard a blind man thanked the band for packaging their album in a sleeve he could read.
I think The Dolls liked Rundgren's production , but , were frustrated to find they still did'nt have any hit material. Even FM Radio was'nt ready for "Personality Crisis".
Sylvain Sylvain told me he was the lone holdout , who wanted to stay with Todd for their second album. The others , he said , wanted to go with Shadow Morton. Personally , I always liked "Too Much , Too Soon" , but , I know I'm one of the few.
Wait Axel, are you saying you don't like the cover of the Ramones release? To me, the inside is as scrumptious as the outside!
And yeah, MikeL, that 1st Dolls album is another fave o' mine. Mmm, B&W fotos...I heard a rumor that originally the Dolls didn't like Rundgren's production, like the Cramps didn't like Chilton's work on their initial release. Wrong in Both cases I'm happy to say...
Ratfink creator Ed "Big Daddy" Roth who created this cover, was upset after he discovered what kind of music the band played. Big Daddy liked rock and roll and was a real milk and cookies G rated sort of guy. He wanted wholesome fun for kids and disliked dark and subversive material.
From: Confessions of a Rat Fink: The life and Times of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth.
The Birthday Party hired famed “Rat Fink” originator, and hot rod artist, “Big Daddy” Roth to do the cover of their third album Junkyard. Roth was a devout Christian at the time and knew nothing of the band when he created the artwork. Afterwards when he heard the album he regretted his contribution.
