    Default Original unused VH1 cover for sale

    i didn't see this posted anywhere else. some dude is selling the original artwork for the first VH album that they ended up not using. It's kind of interesting. the logo is the one from the red vinyl "looney tunes" promo.

    check out this article:

    Cool find, didn't knew there was an alternative cover, would love to see the back cover, kind of seems like it's not original.

    Not as good as the one that was chosen but still pretty cool to see.

    Lol. How did that get out of there?

    They made the right choice. I remember just staring at that cover as the album spun on my turntable.

    It's just cool. Still.

    Didn't Mark Stone come up with that logo. Maybe he needed some money.

    There's really no comparing the two. I can't imagine why they would have even considered that version. When you put the two side by side, it's a no brainer. The logo, the look, the color scheme, the layout...everything is better on the released version.

    Not that they wouldn't have been as successful, because the music is still the same, but the impact of the actual logo and the visual of DLR on the back and seeing Ed's guitar like that make all the difference in the world of packaging and marketing.

    Maybe they wouldn't have broken up with the other logo.

    Did anyone happen to see the very bottom of the guys auction that reads...

    Be sure to check back, I will also be auctioning a "Women and Children First" Album design, that is different from the released version. (Hint: the album was originally going to be black).
