    CD/DVD not-so-good covers

    I think we all have our "favorite" covers. Those that are look like they are designed by the singer, conductor, composer,... worst enemy.

    We can share some of those here, in this thread. Just to start with:

    This cover is outrage. I mean, who's the star of the recording?

    I could post the famous Salome cover with crawling Nilsson but I'm not that mean. I'll leave that one to Couchie.

    What's so bad about Di Stefano two, I'd rather have more of these than another photoshoped picture of singer trying to look SOOOOOO HOT like CD cover would be "I'm looking for groupies" announcement.

    Yes, I also like the Di Stefano covers; both, really. They are cute and unassuming, sort of not taking himself too seriously, I think, and match well his supposed real-life personality.

    When TDK first released the DVD of the 2004 Zürich Opera Fidelio with Camilla Nylund and Jonas Kaufmann, I took one look at the cover design and wondered what on earth those people were thinking. They seemed to have searched for the most unflattering image they could find -- and this with two of the world's most photogenic singers in the leading roles. There were plenty of other images from that production with the two of them together that would have been much more appealing, and more appropriate to the opera's story. (Since then, there has been a new cover design created with Kaufmann prominently displayed.)

    I quite like the EMI Classics art work!

    I don't think that's a flag - I think it's a pennant which jousting knights had.
