I find Philips Duos artwork less than inspiring:



....but the price is right for two discs and they do have a number of them that I greatly enjoy.

For me, it all comes down to the first recording in Bridg'es Elliott Carter series, which looks like the cover of Issue No. 1 of Elliott Carter Comics:



This photo really doesn't capture the wide-eyed, pothead look on Mr. Carter's face. Pity. It's a great recording.

And as far as I'm concerned, any picture of Helene Grimaud is a blessing.

The edges of potential captions swirl around the mind:


In honour of the infamous Lara St.John cover:

What?  What?  It's the same thing, isn't it?

Pictures of  interpreters on a cover is disgusting.

I hear it, George. Yes, quite disgusting, some of the worst ever ;)

For some reason I really dislike the 'Grammophone Awards Collection'....does anyone know where one can buy the Chailly recording of Varese's complete works without the Grammophone awards on it?

It's still shown at JPC with the old cover:

Brilliant. Only when I accessed the 'Fashion Victims' did I know that I had come across his work previously.

Who said the Germans did not have a sense of humour? Made my day.

Thank you ;D
