For my research I looked at a few different looking CD covers in the years of 1950-1980.
Dinner in Caracas – Old grungy look, portrait.
The Twist by the Candymen – Just shows legs, colourful, overlapping same image.
Discotheque – Large colourful lettering, photo of dancers at a club.
Night Train – Dark night scene of train, full image.
Dance with the Ventures – Grungy paint effects cover black and white image.
Joan Jett – Leather jacket covers guitar, only objects not portrait.
