Bad Album Covers

Kevin Rowland – My Beauty (1999)

By far the worst album cover I’ve seen so far.  How could his label even let this one out of the closet (pun intended)?  You be the judge and tell us how bad this cover art is.

Carmen McRae – I Am Music (2013 Japan Reissue)

This seven time Grammy winning jazz singer gets her Blue Note debut reissued as an import that drops Tues (Feb 4th).  Even album covers in 1975 were pretty bad such as this one!  Judge for yourself!

Eric Clapton – Old Sock (2013)

When Rolling Stone reported that blues rock guitarist Eric Clapton will release his 21st studio album titled, “Old Sock” in March, I was curious to see what the album cover.  I wasn’t expecting to see the image below.  This is by far the worst album cover I’ve seen in a long time.  Share your thoughts and your bad album covers.
