PHOTOBOOTHS IN MUSIC

Songs of Leonard Cohen

Leonard Cohen (Columbia, 1967)

The debut of Canadian songwriter Leonard Cohen, this album features, a photobooth photo, according to biographer Tim Footman, who writes, "The cover design appears to have received little thought: a sepia head shot of the performer, taken in a photo booth in Montreal, with the albumís title in lettering that may have appeared cutting-edge at the time, but now looks dated to the point of self-parodyÖ"

Thanks to The Shark Guys for ranking this the seventh worst Cohen album cover of all time, and alerting us to the photobooth photo. Pico Iyer also makes mention of it, and the more we look at it, the more we agree.
