Going through my records, I often think - hey, that album cover looks familiar; it looks like another record cover, but from a different band. I did that a few weeks ago with Herb Alpert and Bryan Ferry. These two records are History - America's Greatest Hits, released in 1974 (hey - produced by Sir George Martin, CBE) and the other one is ABBA - The Album (1977). The white background, amount of white space, the two guys with beards, the colors - uncanny isn't it? By the way, CBE stands for Commander of the British Empire. America's Greatist Hits has gone 4X platinum.
