Worst Album Cover Ever?

There are many outstanding candidates for this honor. But I am particularly partial to Geraldine and Ricky's debut (and only?) album Trees Talk Too.

Ricky, as you can probably see, is a nice guy, albeit a little wooden. And see, he talks (well, actually it's Geraldine, but don't tell anybody). Geraldine, who looks a bit like Lucy Baines Johnson, daughter of former President and talker Lyndon Baines Johnson, has the creepy kind of smile that can only come from having your hand on somebody's ass.

Given the tropical panoply in the background, Ricky was apparently once teak, or perhaps mahogany. As any J.R.R. Tolkien fans knows, it's not so surprising that trees talk. What is surprising is that this one looks a lot like Michael Jackson.

I was always disturbed by this one....

Not sure if it fits into worst.
