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

    THE HIPCRIME VOCAB CD doggedly 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...

    Pretty much any Ralph Lundsten cover.

    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.).
