It's been a while since I found a piece of album cover art to pick on, so imagine my delight when I came across the cover for the 1973 Paul Simon album, There Goes Rhymin' Simon. I love the tongue in cheek name - alas, the album's cover, not so much. It's such a weird hodgepodge of a collage...you can almost hear the pre-Photoshop art director saying, "Aw, fuck it...the album needs to go to press next week, so let's just thrown some objects down on the floor and photograph them." Hence, the Mardi Gras mask, strange looking stars and stripes and kodachrome film all looking out of place. Even though the album featured several styles of music, that doesn't mean the cover needed to be discombobulated as well.
