Those associations seem pretty valid in my experience. I've had a particular fascination with the types of photography used by certain labels or artists for some time. For instance, both Windham Hill and ECM used a lot of landscape photography, but some subtle differences in photos reflected the tremendous differences in the music. On a related note, I clearly recall flipping through albums and guessing how much I'd like what was on them based on the covers. That was especially important at the time as I spent what little money I had on reeds, sheet music, books and albums. I'm fairly certain I'd have put the Starbright album back, especially after seeing the nursery rhyme on the back cover. Finally a shot of tequila sounds good about now.
