Strange that Buzz did not sign Houdini: Not on yours, not on mine and not the one on sale on fleabay...

I gotta admit I was a little disappointed in some of the original covers that were chosen for these bundles.  not as interesting as the religious versions for stoner witch and Houdini that came out in the summer.  some of these I've seen are lame random picks from the dollar bins.

I would have preferred the bundle to be printed on heavy cardboard. These covers I like much more.

I wonder if there's any way they can get in trouble by using these covers.

I wonder why they didn't give consistent numbers for the different albums.

Any bets on what the next bundle will be?

I'd be willing to bet money it's Steve. I like the Joe one more than most but it'll be nice for those people who saw it as a cruel joke that the third EP worked out to be by the guy who was in the band for like five minutes

There's enough artistic variation that they would be able to claim "fair use".  That's not to say one of these artists couldn't bring a challenge if they wanted to... especially if they knew how much these LPs sold for.
