"Where'd You Find That?!": An Illustrated Discography of the (Almost) Unique

Chosen Few - Joke's On Us 7" alternate sleeve

The bassist of the Chosen Few, Ian Cunningham, designed about five or six sleeve designs for their 1978 self-released single:

  1. A striding Hitler with appropriate thought balloon ("The Chosen Few are a Gas!!!)
  2. A bunch of dead bodies on a gallows, with the name of the band superimposed
  3. The drummer, Cal, holding up a sign with the band name on it
  4. Two or three versions of the cover that eventually emerged, with a band pic and band name

The band members rejected all the other designs, and none still exist, except for a handful of the drummer holding the sign design. The back cover (not pictured) is a very rough sketch that was intended to just give an idea of what the finished product would look like. From the collection of Ryan Richardson. The alternate sleeve is on the left and the regular one is on the right, for comparison.
