    Some of your Favorite Album Covers?

    I observed this on another forum and thought it might be interesting. What are some of your favorite album covers and why?

    Some of mine:

    The Beatles: Abbey Road They were scheduled to go to Mt. Everest, but reportedly were to lazy. So they left the studio and simply crossed the street. How easily we are entertained.



    The Beatles: Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band Yes, I like the Beatles. Why? You just had to be there to understand. Have fun identifying everyone.



    Fleetwood Mac: Rumours Stevie Nicks and Mick Fleetwood on an unforgettable iconic cover.



    What are some of yours?

    Steely Dan - Aja: Donald Fagen singing lead vocals claims its about a relative of someone he knew whose wife was named Aja. It's pronounced Asia. The cover features Japanese model and actress Sayoko Yamaguchi. "Newsweek magazine named Sayoko as one of the top six models in the world in 1977."

    I agree that Five Miles Out has a nostalgic cover!
    Amazing how Mike Oldfield is still inspired and making music of superior quality. With an excellent cover too!

    And now another Portuguese album!
    Jose Cid - 10,000 years later between Venus and Mars

    Billboard name it one of the 100 best albums, ever.
    Sputnik Music name it one of the top five symphonic rock albums.

    They say that a vinyl from this album was sold for about 4,000 euros in Japan!

    But if you want to buy for less...

    Jose Cid - LP 10000 Anos Depois Entre Venus e Marte Gloria E Vera Cruz • OLX Portugal

    Ah, and the cover

    Mike Oldfield did it again.
    Took an album of the earliest years and re wrote it and made a master piece.
    The cover is very nice too.

    Ah, and what an amazing recording...

    I think this is the photo used for the album cover. Resolution is better than any album cover I found.
