    The critics would have accused them on trading on their good looks to rope in the girlies.

    The Long Run one, possibly. On The Border, possibly. A version of the OOTN one is on the back of the album anyway. I never understood the appeal of the first photo. The HC one is a dreadful photo of Walsh.

    And yet again, LROOE is ignored. I never liked this; too awkward.



    I can't remember if this came out at the same time as LROOE but it could have worked as a cover:

    Never would have guessed in a million years that was Randy on the eponymous photo.

    Hell Freezes Over. Although Timothy seems to Hard Core for it lol. Desprado is left out because they are on the front.

    I like The Long Run alternate the best, maybe change the backdrop. Travelin Man's HC one is good too but maybe Felder should be holding something else (that doesn't look like they're bragging).

    Because it's unflattering.

    With respect the one where they are holding an award is hardly appropriate for an album cover. Album covers featuring photos of a band have to be something more than just a photo. They should attempt to convey something of the mood of the album.

    This is more of an album cover idea for HC:

    Is Henley wearing Felder's jeans and suspenders in the award photo? Hahah

    also, the HC picture came out probably after the album was released. If this was the fall of 1976, you would want a picture that you had at the time. I think the picture I used as a HC alternate was taken before the album was released and hence could have been used.
