  1. That was a really tough choice between the needlepoint/photo combo of the Galileans and the mushroom cloud of the Rebels, but I ended up voting for the Galileans.

    The Hemphills cover looks way too good to be here. It must have been from one of those batches where almost all of the covers were good.

  2. I have always liked the cover of Gospel Gold by the ORBs and Paradise Island by the BWBs. Those of us who were around at the time the Rebels did What Then can appreciate the use of the mushroom cloud as we were told we faced the possibility of worldwide nuclear destruction due to the number and size of the weapons the US and the USSR had aimed and ready to fire at each other at moment’s notice.
    Worst? Almost a tie among all the rest, but the Greens win my vote.

  3. The Hemphills cover should definitely not be in this group. It’s a pretty good cover IMO and probably pretty hip for it’s day.
    I remember that Greenes cover looking nasty even when it was new. I think they did 2 different covers for it. Not sure if this was the worst of the 2. Looks like a 6 year old designed it. No offense to 6 year olds.
    I’m thinking the Inspirations cover was probably pretty hip for that era. Likely the coolest cover they’ve ever done!
