Several album covers I hadn't seen before

And, in particular, the version of "Poppin" shown above, is different than the Japanese one (GXF 3066) that I see on page 278 of the most recent BN Cover Art book (the small-format book, 7"-square footprint).

What's the story on the two different covers for "Poppin"??

(PS: A couple of these are in the BN Cover Art book, so I guess I have seen them - but most of these are unfamiliar to me.)

Again, these might be very familiar to all of you - but I hadn't ever seen them before today.

I know, this one isn't a classic cover (it's from 1996), but damn - it sure looks like a classic BN cover to me!!

Hell, I could do this for hours, but I got's some work to do.

Here's the link, you can look for more HERE!!!!!

This would be a great source for Avitars too, I might add. I know I plan to steal a few myself...

RT,

The cover you posted is from the (Japanese) CD-edition -- TOCJ-1620. The cover shown in the cover art book (GXF-3066) is from the vinyl version (Japanese King issue).

Thanks!!! Bet there are some others like that too.

I rather like most of the vinyl "King" covers of what were (at the time) previously unreleased sessions.

Can't help but wonder if a Japanese cover was ever produced for Andrew Hill's 1968 trio album "Chain", that went so far as to be assigned a King "GFX" catalog number and everything. If so, I have some silly hope that it could be used for when (if?) this session is ever released. For those who might not know, this session is still unreleased to this day.

Kevin (if you happen to see this), if you ever talk to Michael about unreleased sessions, I'd really be curious to know if he thinks this one will ever come out??

I think I like that cover for "Sonic Boom" just as much as the one that came out on the Japanese CD. Here it is, if anyone need reminding...

2 things -

1) Re: THE PANTHER: That's the same photo as my old LP copy, but a different title layout. What gives?

2) I remember reading in an old Prestige discography that THE JUMPIN' BLUES was briefly issued with a 7600 series #, (or something like that - the point being that it once had a different number than the 10000 series). Anybody know any more about this, and if the earlier issue had a different cover?

Well, ok 3 things then - my copies of THE PANTHER and THE JUMPIN' BLUES are PR-10030 and PR-10020, respectively, yet THE PANTHER saw release first. Widespread release, anyway, as evidenced by reviews, poll results, and such. What's the story there, and does it relate the TJB's earlier release w/a 7600 #? Seems like a shift in the Prestige regime (or at least Don Schlitten's role in it) occured somewhere around that time.

Maybe this belongs in the discographical forum...
