As some of you may have noticed, I tend to enjoy Album Art.
So, I have been working on a project and its been taking a bunch o' investigation, so I thought I'd share it here and see if there are suggestions to add data and/or correct errors. I'm not necessarily looking for every FZ album cover for every crappy boot, rather just if its a good cover and/or a good album with a bad cover. Got a fav that's not on the list?
(Yeah, that 1st page got skewed somehow... I'll fix it in the next edit.)

I particularly like WOIIFTM, Grand Wazoo, OSFA and Tinsel Town Rebellion cover arts. Also the interior of Joe's Garage, which cover I find odd...

The MOFO 2-disc is actually different to the 4-disc cover in that the "O"s are facing the opposite way. (on the 2-disc the center holes tilt to the right, on the 4-disc they tilt to the left).

I haven't noticed that before. The tilted "o"s are very subtle.

The "making of" releases have been some of my favorites. Hopefully "Crush All Boxes", "Chalk Pie" and "Warts and All" see the official release light of day.

Don't now if you're looking for this kind of input, but here's a 3rd version of this cover.

Image

The Barking Pumpkin label numbers (D2 74233) are the same as is the year (1991). It's the wide double CD case like the original release with the band photo. You probably already knew this.

Exactly the kinda stuff I'm looking for. I'll include it in the next edit.
Thanx Manx

This is prolly gonna annoy some people, but I wanna start the next update on a new page. Otherwise, I'm gonna go blind.
