Title: "The Worst Record Covers Ever"

Or so they say at http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/features/weekly/worst-album-covers/

They make a pretty convincing case: some on the last 3 pages are frankly offensive and not safe for kids or anyone with a sense of proportion...

I agree. Barring the last few pages of, quite frankly obscene material, I'd go for Ken, or Herbie Mann, the naked flautist.

I quite like Grace Under Pressure. I was expecting to see Hemispheres. Even Hugh Syme hates it.
