"Can't tell an album by looking at the cover"

    Recently took a punt on a double album for £6 - Jack Dieval Quintet - Live at the "Comedie des Champs Elysees".

    Himself on the cover is a dead-ringer for the Kentucky fried Chicken bloke but with a pipe stuck in his mouth. This does not look promising. This is a journeyman making some money on some far-distant fame from the past. Its even manufactered by Rediffusion for god's sake - don't they hire out TV's or something?

    Big Wrong! OK - some covers but this is dynamic, original and played like it was everyone's first pro appearance. Great stuff.

    Any simular experiences?

    Every record fair I go to, I usually buy a few albums (cheap ones, mind) on the basis of the look of the cover or whether I can recall someone mentioning them. Invariably I get it wrong, but sometimes I luck out and get something really good.

    If it costs £1 or £2, and it sucks, but has a good cover, it can always become art on the wall...
