There was this `70s country rock band called "Baby" and their first album cover was a collage of the band members either standing or sitting in front of this very chintzy-looking drawn background. What killed me was that the band photo had obviously been taken at seperate times because the lighting varied and the shadows were off. It was a self-titled album, saw it once on the Internet and I can't find it.The gospel or evangelist covers are absolute dreck; it's usually them on stage, or outside a church, or standing next to the tour bus (!)....after 1972 their quality began slipping away; before some of them looked like tract covers or painted art. Then Nixon was canned and it became a series of drab photos with that mid-to-late 1970s drabness fakers cannot replicate. And I'm not talking about the PTL records, I'm thinking of the independents who cranked out one or two records and then gave up; the weird record cover websites are full of them.
