Lookalikes 42

Undercurrent by Bill Evans and Jim Hall (album)

Tethered by Amy MacKinnon

So the Undercurrent album is one of several variations on the same released over the last 18 or so years. Not actually sure when the original was released. But I think for this one I like the second one (the book) the most. I just like the colors and title treatment and layout much better.

Which is your favorite?

UPDATE: 6/19/09 Yan found this cd!

  1. I like the book better, too, but the treatment of the album works well with it's title. I'm amazed at you spotting these things - you sure have an eagle eye.

  3. Although I like the overall blue-ness of the album. Very... morose, in a way. Which I like. :)

  4. I like the book better - the yellow against the blue definitely catches my eye. I'm a cover whore, I'd definitely pick up that book!

  9. I love the cover of Tethered. Much much better then the first one. I think the font of the name of the book in the first one is way too big.

  10. I agree, Tethered is much better

  11. I like the book version better, but both kinda creeps me out. I have a fear of drowning, so this does not sit well with me. Plus, it reminds me a little bit of Ophelia

    That picture is actually a photograph taken by Toni Frissell at Weeki Wachee Mermaid pool in Florida, 1947.

  18. What's really odd is that I have a black and white photo version of that - I've used it off and on as desktop wallpaper for ages.

  24. This was a fun one wasn't it! Thanks for the information Annon, I love to learn about the origins about things and see where they end up!

  25. I blogged about Tethered and another lookalike cover (using a different but similar image) here. I also just came across another post about the same image (with four other lookalikes!) at Caustic Cover Critic (scroll down past the first book/album lookalikes).
