Album/single covers that are possibly a still of a video

I've noticed a few of these knocking around. They're often grainy and look like someone's taken a photo of a video on a television screen.

I think all the Unplugged albums were stills of the respective artist's concert but Eric Clapton's takes some beating for poor straight-off-the-TV quality.

I can reveal that, according to the sleeve notes, the above photo was a selfie, taken by Macca, using a fancy watch he'd bought that had a digital camera built into it. :yes:

Still, it's nice to see someone else spot this phenonymum. And that some of the ones we've featured are in there. :happy:
