    Hey BosPatrollie, I suppose I've just always had a thing for the zeitgeist of the late Sixties (sure, 'Weird Scenes' and 'Loaded' came out in the early seventies, but they're still very true to the whole psychedelic image of '67-70)

    Vibrant colours, psychedelic imagery- I suppose I like them because they reflect what sort of music is contained on the albums, and it also says something about what the band thinks of their outcome- 'Revolver', for example, is in black and white, perhaps the Beatles themselves recognised they were moving away from their early 'British Invasion' phase.

    Maybe I'm a little biased- after all, these are among my favourite albums- but I'm sure the album art has at least something to do with that.

    The Chameleons: Strange Times - The imagery makes more sense after listening to the album.

    Herb Albert and the Tijuana Brass: Whipped Cream and Other Delights - Sensual and sexy. An iconic cover.

    Iron Maiden: Number of The Beast - As a teen, me and a friend would go down to a music store in the mall to look at the poster of this album. There are some interesting things going on in the shadows...

    [​IMG]



    The Alan Parsons Project: I Robot - The arrival of the robot in our lives.

    Rush - Permanent Waves: Femme Fatale...and the destruction she leaves behind.

    I like that last Rush.A bit of surrealism here.I love surrealism whether in form of song or physical art such as this.I love the discreet sexual innuendo of the Herb Alpert release,which I believe was Billboard's number one album of 1966.Does anyone here own the original 3-d cover for the Stones' "Their Satanic Majesties Request"?I think I saw a copy in my favorite used records shop for like $35 or something....................

    @architect - Interesting variations, though you posted more than 5 covers. If you had to choose 5 out of those, which would it be?

    ^^^

    The two Floyd, two Mountain and the Caravan. Those were just a few I came up with off the top of my head.
