La pochette laide de la semaine // This week's ugly cover

Flora MacDonald LP (self-published)
Flora MacDonald was a fairly famous politician from the Conservative Party of Canada in the 70s & 80s. I believe she put out that record for one of her fundraising campaigns back in the 70s, but unfortunately, she (or one of her ill-advisers) had the not-so-great idea to adorn the cover with an orange (?) shot of her (disembodied?) head.
Not pretty. In fact, a pretty ugly cover (nothing to do with Ms. MacDonald, I'm referring to the design).
Not to take anything away from Ms. MacDonald - I'm sure she's a lovely person -, but who would ever want to admit that they had bought this (besides me, of course). Luckily, there are not many of these LPs left.
