They’ve buggered up his album covers constantly. We should have a parade of them here, including of course HGTA with a Girls Girls Girls publicity shot from 4 years previously.
I feel only 2 Elvis album covers can now be called iconic. The first album and Gold Records Vol 2. The others seemed to have just been as generic and Bland as possible. I've mentioned it before but Raised on Rock is possibly the worst album cover of all time not just Elvis.
I think Aloha From Hawaii, Separate Ways and one or two others are worse.
At least some design effort was done with them. Better than close up movie headshot or live shot on black background.
Elvis Country at least showed some imagination. But I'm not defending them. Rca didn't know how to handle a star like Elvis. They were totally inappropriate to be his record company
