Purchased (Not Only) By The Cover

Echo And The Bunnymen* - Crocodiles (1980, Los Angeles Pressing ...

40 years ago Liverpool's Echo and the Bunnymen released their first album Crocodiles. It is not necessary to talk about their quality and influence on my musical taste because most of the words are already said. But they had the most stylish atmospheric album covers. From a picture of the band in a wood at night over the band at the sea and a ice desert to the band in a boat in a cavern all of them were great compositions and gave me an idea of their introspective, despaired and a bit confused sound.

I absolutely purchased Crocodiles based on the album cover. I consider all 4 Brian Griffin photographed Bunnymen covers to be among the most striking I have ever seen.
