    Memphis 74





    Here are the 2 variations for a front cover I came up with when the FTD issue of the 1974 Memphis show was announced.

    I did have a back cover planned out too, but when it was also announced this project would be made in a similar 7 inch packaging to the soundtracks, I decided not to continue designing an alternate cover art for this title (for the time being anyway)

    Mark,

    Personally I prefer the zoomed-in image over the shot of the full torso, mainly for the reason that it's less obvious you chopped off his left arm on that one.

    Do you remember someone on another board (who was always right) telling you back then that the image was reversed? Hee, hee.

    Anyway, once again, I think this is a great cover. I might even still have it saved somewhere from when you posted it back whenever that was.
    ...you won't forget me when I go.

    Hi guys,

    Yes Bobby, I recall the discussion over on the Collectors forum regarding whether the picture was reversed or not, together with your active participation in the discussion.

    I also recall there was someone lucky enough to have actually atended that show who was kind enough to reply, do you remember who that was Bobby ?

    I really do like the photo, but, I'm not all that sure I'm very keen on my front cover design for this one anymore (which is perhaps in part to the picture editing I did which you mentioned Bobby).

    However, it is a pleasant surprise to find so many positive comments on this one, and maybe I will revisit it in the future, however, I have a few FTD remakes on my website already, and a couple more in the latter stages of completion (One Night In Vegas and Polk Salad Annie), so maybe I will leave the FTD remakes for a little while after those are completed.

    Thanks again, everyone, nice to know you liked it so far.
