I've heard strong arguments for public domain and used to believe them, but the amateurs touching our boys catalog across the pond are driving me batty. These are all "exhibit A" for why Sony should maintain rights to this older stuff! Kay-rap.... K-R-A-P!

On second thought, I've seen worst covers. It's not all THAT Bad. But still..!

It reminds me of the cover of the 'Such A Night' CD (in the Essential Elvis series). They cut half his face off then, but nobody complained (apart from me!).

Of course they (RCA/BMG) have put pictures of only part of Elvis or his face on the cover of albums before. The single with the Rubberneckin' remix comes to mind. And the booklet of E1 fetaured only half pictures. I don't particularly like this one, though. The cover of Such A Night (Essential Elvis Vol. 6) I actually did like. But there they didn't really cut off half his face as Harvey Alexander suggested, but showed the other half on the backside of the booklet. Looks quite nice if you fold the booklet open to look at the front and back at the same time.
