Always loved this album and cover. My Dad is a big Dire Straits/Knopfler fan and when I was young we were burgled and they nicked my Dad’s hifi and CD collection but left the Brothers in Arms CD - amusing to think of a burgler thumbing through his collection and thinking that Dire Straits wasn’t worth taking! So this was the only CD we had for a while until my Dad started to rebuild his collection. This image of this being the only CD in the house is ingrained in my memory.
You’re in good company- we just decided that Elbow released the best album in February 2017. The Dire Straits rehabilitation can’t be far away.
I’d never heard of them but I’d buy a record with that cover. It reminded me of this one, that I love (sleeve and album):
Can’t be arsed with the record but absolutely love this sleeve.
Amber is fucking incredible
This is the only good album cover
Love this. Not the biggest Floyd fan though
Was drawn to this because of the artwork, not really sure why. What lay beyond the sleeve did not disappoint
the artwork for this is as fucked as the music inside
