I'd love to see the Dream Factory album get an official release, but without Susannah's artwork.
I know it's a rough sketch, but it looks really amateurish.

I wonder if that was one of the reasons it didn't see the light of day.
Grits and gravy, cheese eggs and jam...
Butterscotch clouds, a tangerine and a side order of ham.

Yeah, that's it. A whole album goes unreleased because of one option for artwork. #NailedIt

May not be the reason it was released but the drawing is awful.

It means it's relative to the viewer, isn't it? It's a piece of history, whether folks dig it or not, which - for me - is what's important here. I'm sure folks thought Prince and his thigh-burns on Dirty Mind wasn't the most attractive thing in a year's time either. (It sorta reminds me of a Thin Lizzy or Ted Nugent album cover from the 70s, but I can't think of the right one.) It was a rough sketch, so I'd have been interested to see how it was finessed into a final cover. It'd almost have the same folklore as the ATWIAD covers, and how he ditched one painting for another, but with all the same elements.

Is poverty bringing U down?

One of my Spanish students once wrote in an assessment that he didn't like a hotel because 'el portero era una taza'. It took me ages to realise that he didn't mean that the bellboy was a cup, but a mug...
