1980 Album Covers

It was coincidental that I chose all covers from 1980 today.

The Attractions, Single Girl, F-Beat UK 7-inch, 1980.

Elvis Costello's backing band put out a single and an album (Mad About the Wrong Boy) in 1980. I never heard any of it, but I want to! At least one of their songs ("Sad About Girls") was recorded by them with Elvis. This cover is most likely a Barney Bubbles!

 The B-52's, Private Idaho, Warner Bros. US 7-inch, 1980

Desmond Dekker, Israelites, Stiff Records UK 7-inch, 1980.
Also probably designed by Barney Bubbles.

Elvis Costello, High Fidelity, F-Beat UK 7-inch, 1980.
The center area is a hole, showing the label on the record, which was bright lime green! 
Also probably by Barney Bubbles.

Delta 5, Try/Colour, Rough Trade UK 7-inch, 1980
