In 1970, the bigwigs at ABC/Dunhill Records had to figure out a way to repackage yet another performance of composer Gustav Holst's seven-movement orchestral piece, The Planets. Holst named the individual pieces after Mercury, Neptune, Saturn, Mars, Jupiter, Venus, and Uranus, but maybe the astrology angle seemed too obvious. Perhaps they were influenced instead by the futuristic spacey-ness of recent movies like Barbarella (1968) and 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). Or maybe they just thought how great it'd be to have a model in a miniskirt and reinforced pantyhose squat towards the camera. And thus we can bring to you one of world's best bad album covers after the jump.
