Yeah I did think that but then the 1% of the cover Peter takes up is probably enough😂

Yep, a gatefold live shot would have been much cooler than those notes. I mean, I like em, but they coulda gone in the back of the booklet.

The pics of the three studio albums could have been made smaller and still fitted somewhere in the gatefold without losing any of their impact (or purpose; that is, to make new fans aware of the other releases available).

I like the Alive! gatefold the way it is, and wish the Alive II gatefold was more like that. I find the cover for Alive II completely boring and the picture used for the gatefold looks totally fake to me.

Careful. People here get triggered when you dare to suggest something from the classic era wasn’t perfect. 😬

No they don’t. You just preempt imaginary people who are going to say imaginary things.

No.
Out of focus.
Can't see Logo clearly.
Can't see Peter.
Mike stand in front of Gene.
Paul half covered by the monitor.

Nice idea, but the pictures others posted fit better the purpose...

Not sure why that’s relevant. Most fans here aren’t graphic designers yet get upset if you say something from 1973-79 wasn’t visually great.
