Are these the worst album cover designs ever?

From Pink Floyd's Dark Side of The Moon to The Beatles' Abbey Road, there are many iconic album artworks that'll go down in history. However, there are some records that just don't make the cut. 

One record collector believes he has found a handful of some of the worst designed album covers of all time – and after looking at them, we think he might be right. The discophile has collected over 300 records in the past 5 years, and during that time has found some wild record artwork. The collector has put his favourite ugly albums on display to raise money for charity, and we think they are completely marvellous in their own (slightly hideous) way.
