Thread: The new CD cover contest!

Pam - 3/24/2004 at 04:00 PM

Okay folks here is our latest and best yet contest! Dusty has been recording his latest CD and has given it the name "Exile on Big River"!
Now what this contest is for is we need a CD cover! We have decided to let the fine folks around here submit any original art or picture that best describes the title and Dusty and the Idlewild East crew will look at them all and choose the one we like best!
The winner will recieve a nice prize pack full of great goodies and also will get full credit in the CD insert and on the posters and such that we use the cover on. Please understand that once you submit to us an original picture art work or other kind of design it becomes property of Idlewild East.
So let the fun begin! Once you come up with an idea and get it together you can submit it to the media section here on the site, or email it to if the file is too big to submit. Please have the title of the email or the submission include the words "CD cover EOBR". Good luck to everyone who submits art here! We are sure looking forward to choosing a great cover!
If you have any questions at all please feel free to send me a Private Message here on the site and I will be glad to get you an answer!

I was reading the ideas on the ABB thread.. Maddog was running a few ideas on the inside cover,, but,,,, ..plenty of time !!!....for some new thoughts....

We had a nice ad planed for thr july/Summer issue on HTN,, Inside cover in colour with pics of all 3CD's'...but for some reason,, they changed the format....and dident include the ad in this issue.......I did'ent find out till I got the issue............I really have no more to say about it,,,,,,,

How about a picture of a river nearby or something.... to represent the name with a picture. Like the allman brothers "eat a peach" there was a peach on the album, you know. With a picture of Dusty fishing on river rapids?...... I dunno, just trying to plan out some ideas.


Dusty - 8/13/2004 at 01:01 PM

Hey Mike....we already used that idea on the second CD...believe me ,,,I've nicked about every type of pic on the water here....for a promo one way or the other lol
I just gotta figure out the cover pic they say 'a picture is worth a thousand words'

ABBstillrockin04 - 9/6/2004 at 01:25 AM

Maybe a live picture of just the band jammin'?

Dusty - 9/8/2004 at 05:52 PM

hhmmmmm.......Well, I always include pics of everyone in the booklet....and considering that theres gonna be a different musicians for about each song,,,, I dunno,,,I stilll have a old acoustic guitar...I've been saving to burn at some point in time....
but I'll work out,,,, always does.....

ABBstillrockin04 - 9/9/2004 at 01:30 AM

Get a 35mm camera. Burn the guitar, take a bunch of shots.. and have a ghost image of you and a few others from the songs. Like a hollogram. Heh.... that's the best I can think of.

Dusty - 9/24/2004 at 03:22 PM

Hey Mike, not a bad idea.....there will be ad in HTW soon on my CD's using the working cover on the home page.. .....been kinda thinking about the Dylan' poster board thing,,,,with the others CD titles..scattered at the bottom on the ground....hhmmm its better in my mind visually than trying to explain it,,,lol

Dusty - 6/5/2009 at 04:40 AM

Damn... imagine I had people to play with at one time rimes have changed over the years...
Yea... Im gonna burn that old guitar.....ya can getting alot of different meanings with that.....
