Your Favorite Album Covers

11 posts in this topic

I was looking at the Mosaic Gazette today and there was an article on all time favorite record covers. Some of their choices wouldn't have been mine (although some were). I thought it might be fun to try that here.
Your choice can be LP covers, CD covers, 78 album covers, and any genre of music.

I'll start things off with ten of my favorites. You can list as many as you want. I'll probably return with more.
Here goes - in no particular order:

I only became a jazz fan in the CD era, so covers haven't been such a big thing.

This is a big favorite, though perhaps not the most original choice....
