Well, for a few years, anyway

Apparently, Jackson Hawke wasn't together forever, but they at least had this GREAT cover on their second album. Pretty much perfect, I think.

Simple, classy back cover. Great packaging overall.

Listen to their hit "You Can't Dance" here. (you know, because the YouTube search function here is still irritatingly irritating and I can't post the video itself...)

No help on the back. *shrug*

Do yourself a favor and look him up on YouTube. He really was as great as they all say!

 When I searched for a video (this is for the b-side "Strange Boy"), it said...

No, I did not. (P.S. They're called Cold Fish in the U.K)

Typical bland back cover, though the reversed lettering gives it a bit more character than the K-tel norm.

Here's a TV ad for it:
