      Wow, I so totally did not "see" what the issue was, until I just
      looked at the CD cover again...LOL

      I actually have the Spooky cassette on hand, and the design placement
      is a little bit different - there's still the stamped imprints of
      Lush in a circle all over, but there's only the "male" bit of the
      image, so to speak, on the cassette, and it's placed upward instead
      of downward... Not that anyone cares *that* much about it, but just
      FYI...LOL

      Oh, and I just now unfolded the rest, and in the middle is another of
      those worm-looking things, then a plus sign (in raspberry pink,
      white, and cool blue), and then, the last part of insert has the
      ummm, "female" part...oh, and there is a mini version of the "male"
      part below the "female" part - and this is probably way too much
      neither-here-nor-there information, so I'll shut up now.

      This is what happens by Friday afternoon, after a long work week...LOL

      You mention simple artwork, but there s still a lot of detail in these covers, especially the 1st two, which are paintings (I think?). I like the Peter, Paul,

          You mention simple artwork, but there's still a lot of detail in
          these covers, especially the 1st two, which are paintings (I
          think?). I like the Peter, Paul, and Mary one - it's cute - and the

            Nice list! :D I especially like the Power Corruption and Lies by
            New Order cover art, and that would be on my list as a
            favorite "flower" pic, except that I saw the Nightmare Of You cover
            art and liked that even better. Also love the flaming flower on
            Adorable's Against Perfection album that you listed.
