michael bolton joy to the world remixmichael bolton joy to the world 1Joy To The World was a mini-album (or EP) by incredulous crooner Michael Bolton. The original cover has Mr Bolton looking ludicrous singing earnestly against a backdrop of snow covered trees. But lo! It seems that the cover has been airbrushed - the correct version has one of Mr Bolton's fans (who may well be called Joy) standing behind showing her joy to the world. Good job that we at AllBum.Art were able to recover the original from Mr Bolton's recycle bin!

Wintersong - Sarah McLachlan

sarah mclachlan wintersong remixsarah mclachlan wintersong 1Wintersong was a 2006 album by Canadian singer Sarah McLachlan. On the cover we see Ms McLachlan looking very wintery in a snowy scene in a floaty white dress, eh? The remix is equally wintery but the difference is that it seems the lady in the picture has foregone the wearing of the floaty white dress altogether. To be honest, she looks a bit chilly, but it is an album full of winter songs so what did she expect, eh?

Tied Together With A Smile - Taylor Swift

taylor swift tied together remixtaylor swift tied together 1Which category should this Taylor Swift cover remix go under? Tied Together With A Smile was never a single and it wasn't an album either. It was just a song on an album and as such would not normally have its own cover. But it does! And the remix helps explain the soug (which is about bulimia). You see the reason that the girls are so thin is simply because they are tied together. If they untied themselves then they would be able to scoff some cakes (which they could certainly do with).

Halfway Between The Gutter And The Stars - Fatboy Slim

fatboy slim halfway between gutter stars remixfatboy slim halfway between gutter stars 1An album for a change. This time the rather longly titled Halfway Between The Gutter And The Stars by Fatboy Slim. On the original cover we see a tantalizing glimpse of what might be a naked chick but is too 'extreme close-up' to tell. Let's back that camera right up and see what we can see. Oh, she's moved to that rock. Was she naked? Look for yourself fatboy!

Embrace - Fragma

fragma embrace 1What do we have here? An attractive blonde, squatting down, in a pretty dress in some kind of ragged yet picturesque blue-washed area. How this relates to the title of the album or the cover is totally unknown. The blonde in question does not even appear to be the singer for Fragma's 2002 album Embrace so perhaps they just used a mildly sexy picture to try and improve sales of the album. Also, quite possibly, it is intended to attract the kind of club DJs who would play the kind of music that Fragma make. Whatever the reason, it fails the two primary tests of a good cover in that it does not feature the band, nor does it in any way reflect the title of the album.

fragma embrace remixThe original cover dates from 2002 and the blonde girl pictured on it will now be over 10 years older. And guess what... there is a more up-to-date picture of her available on the Internet. As such this is less of a remixed or remade cover and more of a straightforward update. The other thing that has changed is that the blue-washed area is now a sight more derelict than it was, and some of it has actually collapsed revealing a wild green area behind. There is one other change, and that is that the pretty dress that was originally being worn has, over the intervening years, evaporated (as such dresses have a tendency to do) leaving the lady wearing nothing more than her shoes. To protect her embarrassment at this unfortunate deterioration in her situation, she had has to embrace her greater embarrassment with her hands. So the picture at least now has some connection with the name of the album. It is to be hoped that she manages to find some other work to keep her busy soon, before the whole area is demolished to make way for some new expressway or skyscraper.

With thanks to Bart for the tip off on this one.

Feels Like I'm In Love - Kelly Marie

kelly marie feels like im iAlthough this cover has been filed under '1980s singles', the actual album art that has been modernized is from the 2006 'Best of' album which also happens to have the same name as Kelly Marie's most famous single, 'Feels Like I'm In Love'.

The original single cover from the Scottish songstress is rather more plain than this one in which a late 70s/early 80s style model is pictured lying on red satin sheets in a see-through bra, stockings and strappy silver high heels. This is probably not Kelly Marie herself (though it could be), but a model brought (bought) in for the occasion.

kelly marie feels like im 2Despite the cover being relatively raunchy, it has been further modernized by AllBum.Art to include a much sexier female model in a similar outfit and on the same red satin sheets. Unfortunately, her bra seems to have come of and, unless mistaken, it looks as if someone has begun pulling her panties down too, as they seem to be not quite where they should be. At least her stockings seem to be intact. She's also facing the other direction, perhaps she is left-handed and the original model is right-handed, or maybe it's the photographer that has the opposite handedness. Then again, who cares?
