The first compilation of pairs of album covers from the early days of Vinyl Connection seemed to go down quite well. So here is a second batch.
PLEASE MISTER POSTMAN
Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band “Strictly Personal” [Blue Thumb, 1968]
Free “Live” [Island, 1971]
For extra postal authenticity, the Free album actually has a triangular flap just like a real envelope. Holy postage service, Mailman!
JOURNEY THROUGH A BURNING BRAIN
Clearlight “Symphony” [Virgin, 1973]
George Gruntz “Eternal Baroque” [Atlantic, 1974]
Nearly bought another ‘brain’ cover yesterday, just for the artwork. Then I came to my senses.
LOOK THROUGH ANY WINDOW
Brand X “Unorthodox Behaviour” [Passport 1976]
Mark-Almond “Other People’s Rooms” [A&M 1978]
My favourite from this batch. Dubious taste, but amusing, don’t you think?
Kitaro “Oasis” [Grammavision 1979]
Passport “Ataraxia” [Warner 1978]
