In this year’s “That 70s Show” episode, we take a look at the music that shaped 1974. It was a year of many genres nearing their end while future genres were just beginning to bud in the underground.
Leonard Cohen “There is a War”
Gil Scott Heron “H2O-Gate”
Funkadelic “On the Verge of Getting It On”
King Crimson “Fallen Angel”
Robert Wyatt “Little Red Riding Hood Hit the Road”
Roxy Music “All I Want is You” John Cale “Fear is a Man’s Best Friend”
John Cale “Fear is a Man’s Best Friend”
The annual “Worst Album Covers” list is one of my favorites because it gives me a chance to write about a subject that is a little more light-hearted and fun than the more formal album review. I enjoy poking fun at the bad album covers that I’ve seen during the year, so go into the following article with that in mind. If you are easily offended, it might be good to stop reading now. Some of the choices will make you feel awkward, some of the choices are in bad taste, and others are just plain awful. Whether you find the following covers to be interesting or fantastically bad, take joy in this year’s collection of horrible album art.
