    Just received a nice original vinyl pressing of this the other day--all the better to scrutinize the cover details.

    Contrary to popular demand: THE HIPCRIME VOCAB CD startlingly available!

    I'm probably missing out on something ...quite a few people who i thought should know better really like The Grateful Dead. OTOH a lot of Rick Griffin stuff is uniquely mind blowing. He certainly moved the bar for the psychedelic vein of graphic art. IMO the Dead always seemed pretty ordinary, (often like a folk or country band) when you compare them to FZ, Hendrix, the Mahavishnu Orchestra...or Rick Griffin.

    I see - I thought you meant you liked the Dead, but not this album. Yeah, it's not everyone's thing, I know.

    That is one of my favorite album covers of all time! The music is also fantastic.

    Then there was this one. But I actually spent a lot more time looking at the inside gatefold, and if you zoom in on the center spine you can probably figure out why...

    Always love the cover of Eloy Floating, I even searched to find the artist, as I was ready to buy a full size to hang on the wall, alas, I never found it...

    I have a whole list over on Rate Your Music of album covers I adore, a list I call Sheer Visual Elegance. As you can tell, Roger Dean and Shusei Nagaoka are particular favorites (and a tip of the hat to Ulrich Schütt, who did the covers for the new age act Blonker. His paintings are just lovely.).

    Well, an obvious choice would be Jethro Tull's Thick as a Brick. Between the news articles, adverts, photos and puzzles, you could spend days reading various aspects of the design.

    That's great.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    Good list, but the wrong Ashra.

    Samurai cover.jpg

    This one has always fascinated me:
    how thin the couple is (yet how large her breasts are!) and did she just light a match across his back?
    And i've hoped whatever he is rolling isn't tobacco--didn't think so!

    My mother had a small collection of albums in the 60s. We had this album. I'm 10 years old in 1966, staring at this album cover, thinking....if I could only move some of that whipped cream over a bit from her left tit.

    Your mother was probably wondering who's been licking this album cover.
