Born In The U.S.A. is by FAR my least favorite cover of his.

Worse than “Working On A Dream” or “Western Stars”?

Born to run for me. Not only the best cover, but that white background sure makes for a good autograph space if you are lucky enough (as I was) to get Bruce to sign it for you.

Nothing really terrible about the 'Western Stars' cover, it's a good photo.  I'd just have preferred something with a bit more desert and a little less horse!  I'm glad it wasn't yet another unflattering photo of Bruce. :P

You'd never know what greatness lies inside of WIESS or Darkness by looking at the covers.

There is a little story to the front cover of WIESS (which indeed is unremarkable, nothing special). All Columbia artists had a photo of the artist or the band on the front cover of their debut album, to introduce the artist to their audience (even Dylan on his first album). For Bruce was made an exception because of the postcard sleeve of Greetings. Instead the traditional photo was now on the second album.  Which is, it seems, a photo taken while, or just after, Bruce is wiping his chin with a napkin after eating pizza (some things you just don't wanna know...:ph34r:).

And I think the Darkness front cover is very representative of what's inside.
