Most inappropriate album cover


Bluemoon

Recommended Posts

I am going with Scorpion's "Virgin Killer" (the European cover). I believe the cover was banned here...I think rightly so. I would post it here but I am afraid of getting arrested.

 

You can see it on wikipedia if you are curious...though don't open it at work or in front of your kids.

I remember buying that album. It was a tough one to sneak into the house. I still have it, though it is not one you bring out to show people at cocktail parties. I believe the British government recently forced Wikipedia to remove it from the UK version of their site--arguing it was child pornography.

 

Makes you wonder what the record company was thinking.

+1 and kudos to Uli Jon Roth for the comment on the art cover. I'm all for being open minded and all, but there's always a limit.

Back around 1979 a friend showed me an album cover, I think it was Warren Zevon and the album title had something to do with girls's school or something... not sure if was Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School or not. It showed Warren facing you with his arms around two young ladies facing the other way, and at least one of his hands was hiking one of the girls' skirts up and copping a feel. It's been 30 years so it's fuzzy but I do remember his mother ran the library at a good sized college and she brought home many albums and tapes as a perk. This one ultimately got recalled and something else replaced it. I googled it to no avail.
