think Hamburger Concerto is genius---sort of says it all.
CTTE is great because its so simple---Didnt like Hand cannot erase album cover---

But was never crazy about Trespass Nursery Crime or Foxtrot not great art---from my Fav band.

Guru Guru - Hinten. A naked hairy man's butt is just not a great sight. Yes, it is meant humorously, but still - no thanks.

How dare you? Male naked butts are a staple of progressive rock covers! LOL

I'm going slightly non-prog to nominate the debut Montrose album, although at least there are no butts involved.

I'm going to expand the tendency of the latest posts to the outer circle of the realm of PA:

Triumph - debut album

Not a great album, only the closing track is excellent; the rest is decent.

I made a whole list of BAAAAD album covers on RYM


Some that are on PA include:

Death Spiritual Healing album cover

The Move Looking On album cover

Spring Spring album cover

Hawkwind Hawklords: 25 Years On album cover

Marillion Anoraknophobia album cover

Dream Theater When Dream And Day Unite album cover

That's just a sample. For more see the list.

That cover's fine. One can do much, much worse when it comes to "shirtless band pix." Like that Orleans album (not gonna post it!).

RIP Ronnie Montrose. That first record is outstanding, and Paper Money is a worthy follow-up. No sophomore jinx with those guys.
