What were The Shadows thinking about when they put the artwork together for the front cover of their album Reflection? Oddly, it is an electric guitar whose facade has been distorted by the waves of what appears to be a swimming pool. But it's not a reflection, is it? It's a distortion. On the remix is a babe wearing little other than her lingerie, whose body is being reflected in a mirror. There's a reflection of her, not a distortion. But there's no shadow, so it's not a perfect solution. La La Land.
In some ways it is difficult to improve upon the original album front cover artwork for Hooked by Great White, which shows what appears to be a naked babe, clasping onto a fishing hook of some girth. She has certainly been hooked. The remix changes very little. A babe is still hooked, but this time as she leans astride a pommelhorse rather than being out at sea. And the hook is not a fishing hook this time, nor is it Captain Hook, or Doctor Hook. It's a kind of a crook, that is to say by hook, or by crook. Look, we never said this web-site was intellectual. Book!
When Skee-Lo had recorded his album (and single of the same name) Top Of The Stairs, he must have been exhausted. So much so that for the original front cover artwork, all he could manage was a picture of himself with no stairs to climb. On the remix is a babe who is trying to make her way to the top of the stairs, but seems to be more concerned with taking off her panties whilst sitting on the stairs. Maybe that is why Skee-Lo is in no rush to make it all the way to the top. Descent!
Album Covers, Albums Of The 1990s, Single Covers, Singles Of The 1990s, Outdoors, Wet & Windy, Safe For WorkWhen Vanessa Mae was thinking about what could go on the original cover artwork for both her single and album, both titled Storm, she obviously thought that a picture of her with some red lighting was somehow evocative of bad weather. On the remix is a babe who is actually enduring stormy weather out at sea. She had better be careful as she is naked (at least from the waist upwards) which is not the right clothing for when the weather is inclement. Umbrella!
Head Over Heels is the most common name for a single or album here at AllBum.Art. Today it is the turn of Paula Abdul's album of that name. The original cover artwork shows Ms Abdul climbing up some scaffolding. She is lying down and her head is marginally above her heels (not that she is wearing what most people would call heels, them being very flat). On the remix is a babe lying down on a carpet and she is wearing what people would call heels, one of which is above her head, and the other underneath it. Nor is she noticeably fat. Balanced!
Seamonsters (whoooo, splash). It is an album by The Wedding Present. That has to be stated as the original album cover artwork just shows a number of red < V > type signs floating around on a dark background. On the remix we see two real life seamonsters, who have decided to take a splash about in the sea. Don't get too close because if they start moving too quickly, a vortex will form and you will be lost at sea forever. Whoooo.
It seems that James's idea of a Gold Mother, is some kind of blurred, watery image of what could possibly be Mary, but could just about be anyone if the original album front cover artwork is a reflection of their opinion. The AllBum.Art opinion on what constitutes a gold mother, is a mature golden-haired babe, wearing a gold basque, and gold high heel shoes. A sexy gold mother [insert your own word to complete the sentence here]. Flim?
What would you expect to see on the cover of an album called A Life Of Surprises? According to Prefab Sprout it would be a tiny picture of three people standing next to, or sitting on, a motorbike. Which may be surprising, but not as surprising as the picture on the remixed front cover. The remix shows a guy who is clearly very surprised that the busty woman standing next to him has slipped off her clothes and is showing him her ample bosom. If he has a life of surprises like that, his life must be very interesting. Expert!
What does Down On The Upside mean? Perhaps Soundgarden know what it means, but the original album front cover artwork doesn't explain it, unless it is somehow connected to being on a stage with a waterfall in the background. On the remix we find a babe who is, quite simply, upside down. Her down is on the upside, and her up is on the downside. Whether this is what the band meant we don't know. Invert!
Whilst we are in a Terence Trent D'Arby kind of mood, here's a remix for his album Vibrator. On the original front cover artwork we find Mr D'Arby wearing what appear to be white angel wings. This is not an obvious choice for an album whose title has a very obvious visualization. And on the remix this very obvious visualization has been used as we find a babe holding a vibrator which must belong to Mr D'Arby, otherwise it would make no sense at all. D'Vlish.
