Re: 2020 Album Cover Poll

Cheers for this, Holden! There's a slight leaning towards later releases among my selections as, to my untrained eye, visual art seems to date quicker than music. Or maybe it's the availability heuristic at play... I may add to the below but here it is for now, irrespective of the musical content (I...

Thelonious Monk's 'Misterioso' was first released as the B-side of 'Humph' in 1949, 9 years before its claimed release date on AM. 1958 saw its release as part of the live album of the same name, no doubt the source of the confusion.

Tommy Dorsey again- RYM has I'm Getting Sentimental over You as 1936, not 1932. Wikipedia lists the latter year as the date it was written and first performed, then gives the original copyright as 1933, so 1932 is unlikely.
