Album Art

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Did styleforum have a thread on this already? What are your favorite album covers? For whatever reason - favorite album, ridiculousness, great art, etc.

Inspired by talk of Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass -- Whipped Cream and Other Delights



Elvis Costello -- This Year's Model. There are two versions of this, this is the one I have, for whatever reason; I prefer it to the version where his face is more visible.


The Clash - London Calling. The only album cover that matters.


Chevy Chase -- Chevy Chase. Just for fun.


Dee Dee King (nee Ramone). Pop culture artifact. Cool, ludicrous, and sad all at once.


Your favorites?

I saw this Tony Hawk game when visiting the store with some younger cow-orkers over lunch. I was the only one who got the reference. Very saddening:



Some of my personal favorites include:

New Order's Power, Corruption & Lies which includes a secret color code:


Disraeli Gears, just because:



For whatever reason, this cover has always worked for me:

Need to find an image of the back cover to complete this. Only one I could find and the album is too large to fit on my scanner...

This art was way better in original, LP release. The album cover was breathtaking.



Ohio Players also had some tasty art. I'll have to dig around for examples.

Possibly both the best album title and best cover art:



And we can't forget this one:

The Ohio Players, all albums, clean and ahead of their time.
And the Black Crowes get my vote, but not into the band.

Thanks for digging up the OP covers. Fire was a dandy!

hmmm... never heard blind faith, but always loved this cover. it makes me feel funny:



this brazil 66 record cover is amazing on the original gatefold, you fold it out and find that the "hill" in question is a breast:
