Album Covers with Gratuitous Punctuation

40 posts in this topic

Okay, I'm not into all the album cover threads as much as a lot of the folks here, but this one spoke to me right away.

This is actually a pretty good album, but lordy, the punctuation! Besides the semi-ridiculous contraction of "New Orleans," it has an arbitrary comma and an example of the dreaded extraneous plural apostrophe.

Spontooneous, I couldn't see your last two images.

I "could not" see Spontooneous' last, "two images" either. I note that they, are "from" LP Cover Lover. I, think, that images taken "from" that site are, generally, not "visible".

I guess they spent so much on graphic design that they couldn't afford a proofreader.

Love that N'Orleans cover, Jeff! My favorite detail is "Battle Hymn-Republic." But they blew the opportunity for "Closer Walk w/Thee" and "My Hat, Cane."

I'll try to fix those two missing images in a bit.

Man, Jeff, that is an amazing cover! I would love to have that in my collection.

And many, many more 'we're too hip to sound our gs' album covers.

I've always thought that someone should make an album called "Gerundin'."

On Ebay even as we speak.

Thanks! I'll keep an eye on it... even though checking my eBay spending totals for the last 60 days brought me back to Earth. Whoops.

As a friend in Boston pointed out years ago, the obvious one missing from the gerund series was "Fuckin' With the Miles Davis Quintet."
