Album Cover Art Wednesday: Tony Bennett

Tony Bennett is a remarkable artist. He’s still going strong at the age of 88. He lasted by sticking to his guns and being who he really is: a Jazz saloon singer. But like his peer, Frank Sinatra, Tony had a career crisis at the peak of the rock era but, unlike Frank, he never retired and returned. He did, however, resort to covering some then contemporary pop songs and releasing an album with this goofy cover:
