Yes, I wish they had used the advertised cover art. There's quite a few differences in the two paintings. Although the basic elements are the same the entire picture was re-painted. I prefered the one we didn't get.
I just ordered the Lacerenza CD from Kronos' new GOLD COLLECTION. Some really cool stuff coming from the Maltese label. It still puzzles me that they changed the artwork for Ortolani's Killer Crocodile. Perhaps Mr. Borg would like to comment on this?
