Keith Emerson Says Cheesy Cover Spoiled ELP Album

(Prog) Keith Emerson says that the cheesy cover of the 1978 Emerson Lake and Palmer album Love Beach "kind of ruined" the release.

The three members are seen standing on a sand dune with a backdrop of palm trees and sunset, clad in shirts that reveal hairy chests. And the keyboardist accepts that the terrible image overshadowed the music contained within.

He tells Something Else: "Let's tell you the truth it's not a bad album. It's just the cover; the cover kind of ruins it. I think it was unfortunate to have the picture of us on the front looking like the Bee Gees." Find out how it happened.
