I have no interest in the disc, but I find the cover striking.

Well, misleading, if the music has to do with trumpet, piano and string concertos.
I find it weird, anyway.

I think it says "this album cover sponsored by the Royal Society for the Promotion of Anorexia" but hard to make out the small print

This is not one of the best looking covers I've seen, but it is much further from being one of the worst looking covers.  I suppose it's one of the more eye-catching, and it made me stop to look and consider the disc.  I'll probably pass, but it grabbed almost a solid minute of viewing time.

The LP issue of Mehta's recording of Also Sprach Zarathustra was very striking. I don't have the LP any more but here is a link -

https://www.discogs.com/Richard-Strauss-Los-Angeles-Philharmonic-Zubin-Mehta-Also-Sprach-Zarathustra/release/2050745 .

I was told many years ago that the cover won an award (no idea what) and it was the first time it had gone to a classical cover.
