Is it just me, or do others living in the year 2021 find the image sexiest and totally unacceptable?
this photo is too hard....this photo is too soft.... what else is going on?
I don't believe she was abused. She seems mighty happy and strong. Totally in control of herself. Oooo as a young teenager, I kept that sunburst finish album underwraps lol 😆😆😆
@Coach Matt I tried to hide Sunburst LP from my parents, but they both praised the cover and one of them even used the word “elegant.”
Roxy Music’s ‘Country Life’ got me in trouble with my parents. Sneers and sighs. 😮☺️😁
@Alec Both great albums!!
Isn't there a play titled: No Sex Please! We're British!
I just watched a You Tube song being played with go-go dancers. My, Grandma sure could shake it. If anything I am disappointed that we are not all dressing like the illustrations of the 1920's - 1980's version of the future.
If I saw this image on an LP, I’d want to hear it and without question the slightly racy visual message is the main reason for that, but there are other visual messages that’d influence why.
She’s reminiscent of the female characters in the late 1960s television series ‘Lost In Space.’
This cover also reminds me of the opening credits of the ‘60s television series ‘Bewitched.’
If this was the cover of an LP from the ‘50s or ‘60s, I’d want to hear it, expecting Les Baxter or Martin Denny-sounding music with interesting sci-fi sounds and haunting melodies and arrangements.
and opinions are fine...teh cD was released 9 years ago ..but i guess its "sexist" in the way that lots of 50's type sci fi was....but appropriate to capture the sci fi 50's vibe...But your opinion is fair enough...
Sunburst Finish was released in the 70s. I thought it was great, as I did the Roxy Music covers. However, we now live in the year 2021 and things have changed somewhat.
I love both Sunburst Finish and Roxy Music ..!! That being said, I don't think either covers are sexist. Just my personal opinion.
gosh i hate to think what he makes of the sunburst finish cover !!!! LOL
I've got this suspicion that the tradition of pretty girls dolled up as a way to bring eyeballs and move units will continue. It is an interesting time though for all this. As someone who grew up in the SFBA in the '70s, I was early on made familiar with feminist reading of such advertising.
To find the image 'sexiest' you need to have a comparison, which other images are you comparing it to?
Ha! - fantastic Jon!
Not sure what that is meant to mean?
