Artsy Fartsy Photos of Great Album Covers, #1
Is that post title random enough for you?
This one is "Flesh + Blood," the 1980 album from Roxy Music. Which, by that point, meant Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, Phil Manzanera, and a bunch of sidemen.
The album was not up to the level of past ("Siren") or future ("Avalon") works, but it wasn't bad at all, and probably underrated.
But as always, the cover art was sublime. And in this case, you just knew that the javelin was headed straight towards Bryan Ferry's heart.
