Let's talk about the BSO sleeves. Which one is your favourite ?
We just talk about the sleeve, no matter what you think about the album.
Personally, mine is Guitar Slinger in the "original version", I mean the Japanese sleeve from september 1995.
Anyway, I feel better with a pix (1st, 2nd and 7th album) than with a drawing even if there are really great ones on the 4 albums concerned...

Usually I prefer real pics too but The Dirty Boogie cover is my fave.
Guitar Slinger would be second but in its US/UK/EU form.

For me, it'd have to be the Dirty Boggie sleeve, although I kinda dig the characture of Brian as Santa from the X-Mas albums. I cannot tell you HOW many times I've must have drawn the face-less cat in the foreground and used that style font of the logo. To me, that image is EXACTLY what I picture during "Hollywood Nocturn". The funny thing about that sleeve is, I dislike the color green...unless it's Dark Highland Green Wink As far as the solo stuff goes, it has to be "13".

BSO covers:

Dig That Crazy Christmas.

But, my very favorite Setzer album cover is Live Nude Guitars. It's just....sexy! I also love the cover for Nitro Burnin' Funny Daddy.

Well, although I'm partial to the cartoon/caricature covers, I think my favorite is actually the sleeve from the 1st album. I've always thought the portrait of Brian was reminiscent of Jules Verne's literary character "Dorian Gray". Plus, you have a Gibson guitar, sheet music score, dice, and a candlestick completing the image. To me, it's a really intriguing and nicely done cover sleeve.

I've been hesitatin' between Guitar Slinger & the first album sleeve. This portrait fascinates me since the first time I saw it, may be as the Stray Cats first album sleeve !

Not only does GS have great sleeve work, I think it has the BEST and most interesting layout of all of the albums. The sleeve unfolded into seven or eight pages, you had cool pictures and I personally like the roughness of the layout, with the lyrics scribbled and the photo proofs being circled and what-not. I just LOVE that album in general. I still think the most influential album, for me anyways, was the DB album with the "faceless man of mystery". I had completely forgot about the BSO album, as I only had the cassette and the layout wasn't as exciting.

Dirty Boogie and Vavoom! Those were my first two BSO albums. Guess they stuck.

Gotta agree Mike. Followed closely by the Japanese "Guitar Slinger".

I agree with Tommy and I wish there were more pics from the Guitar Slinger Era.
