I had several of those recordings on LP and remember the covers fondly.


At first I thought this was a Haydn LP!

For me these are über cool covers. I loved them then, I love them still.

Might as well show the other two covers of this cycle:




I like 4, 6, 7, and 8-9 for their distinctive 1970sness.

Maybe a homage (rip-off) of the Chicago album covers, which featured the band logo in different physical manifestations, chrome, wood, textile, etc

Splendid.

Nothing says quality classical piano music quite like "Monster Dog".

The way that fluffy, undefined, huge dog is out of focus and cut makes the whole thing particularly amusing. But it seems to have been a favourite of his, and even his cover design preferences:

I think the special quality of that cover comes from the weird discoloration used. Agent Orange perhaps?

That cover could work for Björk, but that's about it...  ???
