This kind of cover is definitely gone burger. I can't think of any group who would now do close up mug shots for a CD cover. Sends too many messages that they don't want out there in 2011. Even rampant egotists like Bono wouldn't dare, even though they want your love.
No apologies for the fab four dominance of this category - they set and maintained the standard!
|Badfinger - Straight Up|
|The Rolling Stones - Between The Buttons|
|The Beatles - For Sale|
|The Fabs again.|
