Bursting Out - Jethro Tull

Bursting Out - Jethro TullBursting Out - Jethro TullWe give a silver star to Jethro Tull for the original artwork for their album Bursting Out. That is because on the front cover they have a balloon, and as this was a live album, they show a singer on stage. The back side of the cover showed the other side of the balloon, a nice touch. On the remix we find a pinup babe bursting out from a grey piece of paper, as people did in the 1950s. It is perhaps a good job that she isn't wearing a bra, as she may have burst out of that too. Bust!

Grab It For A Second - Golden Earring

Grab It For A Second - Golden EarringGrab It For A Second - Golden EarringGrab It For A Second is the title of both a single and an album by Golden Earring. On the original front cover artwork we find a babe looking over her shoulder and she seem to be wearing an earring. She does, though, seem to have her face being grabbed by an other-worldly hand. On the remix is a babe who is also offering part of her body to be grabbed for a second but it is her boob and not her face that is being proffered. Dangle!

Sit On It - Jimmy Smith

Sit On It - Jimmy SmithSit On It - Jimmy SmithWhat can you see on the original front cover artwork for the album Sit On It by Jimmy Smith? It looks like a babe sitting on an electronic piano, or an organ as some might call it. On the remix is a different babe sitting on a piano stool, next to an analog piano, not an electronic one, nor an organ. She looks like the type that might enjoy sitting on an organ though, if someone asked her nicely. Tulip!

Come Softly - Barooga Bandit

Come Softly - Barooga BanditCome Softly - Barooga BanditCome softly, go softly, even stand around doing nothing softly, whichever is your preference, it is the turn of Barooga Bandit to educate us how to do things in a soft way. From the original album cover artwork, it would seem that the prime thing required, is a pair of short-shorts and a bow. On the remix, nothing much has changed other than that the cameraperson has rotated nearly 180 degrees so we can see the front of the shot instead of the rear. Behind!

Easter - Patti Smith Group

Easter - Patti Smith GroupEaster - Patti Smith GroupHappy Easter! Today it is the turn of the Patti Smith Group and their highly appropriately named album of the 1970s called Easter for the remix treatment. On the original album front artwork we find Ms Smith showing us her underarm hair in a skimpy spaghetti-strap t-shirt. On the remix we find a babe in a very similar pose, with the added factor of her wearing a cross on a necklace which seems far more Eastery. Egg!

Busting At The Seams - Strawbs

Busting At The Seams - StrawbsBusting At The Seams - StrawbsBursting At The Seams, that is what Strawbs sing about. Whilst they are singing they had their picture taken and put on the original front cover artwork of their album. But which seams are bursting? We think the remix answers this question, as we find a babe whose ample bosom is proving a little too much for the top she is sporting. It isn't quite burst yet, but the seams do seem stretched beyond their working tolerances. Eke!

Use Your Imagination - Mud

[img=images/mud-use-your-imagination-1.jpg popup=true width=150 height=150][img=images/mud-use-your-imagination-2.jpg popup=true width=150 height=150][img=images/mud-use-your-imagination-3.jpg popup=true width=150 height=150]
Another triple-play to start the month here at AllBum.Art. We kind of like the original album cover artwork for Use Your Imagination by Mud, as that is clearly the instructions that they gave to their designer. On the first remix, we are to us our imagination to guess what happens next. On the second remix, we are to use our imagination to guess what lies underneath. Little imagination was used by the designers of this remix (sorry Petey). Guesswork!

Sheet Music - 10cc

Sheet Music - 10ccSheet Music - 10ccWe can see what 10cc were trying to do with the original album cover artwork for Sheet Music, as they have pulled in the border surrounding the picture of the band members into the middle of the cover to make it look as if it is a sheet. Nice try. On the remix we just find a babe resting underneath a sheet, ready, or so it would seem, to make sweet music, though we can't see what instrument she plays. Flute!

Bride Stripped Bare - Bryan Ferry

Bride Stripped Bare - Bryan FerryBride Stripped Bare - Bryan FerryCould there be any album title more obviously set up for a remix than Bride Stripped Bare by Bryan Ferry? On the original cover artwork we find Mr Ferry standing in a leather jacket. Come on now, surely the designers could have done better than that. Something like that which is shown on the remix in which a bride is being stripped bare by her bridesmaids, who, it would seem, have already been stripped bare themselves. Corset!

Stick To Me - Graham Parker And The Rumour

Stick To Me - Graham Parker And The RumourStick To Me - Graham Parker And The RumourWe have been trying to work out what is in the seven pictures on the original front cover artwork for Stick To Me by Graham Parker And The Rumour. They all seem to be shots of a singer and the band playing, in different colored lights. Is that sticky? On the remix are two babes who are sticking close to each other. That is probably a good thing, as they both seem to be topless, so working together to find their clothes would be more efficient than going it alone. Glue!
