Cool album covers...

Postby BeefSandwiches » Mon May 22, 2006 11:00 am

This is a pretty random question...

I just moved in to a new place and I want to frame some cool album covers to hang on the wall. I am looking for city-scapes or city scenes, a la Zep's Physical Graffiti, which is the only one I have right now (never been into vinyl, but they look cool framed). Any suggestions?

the freewheelin' bob dylan cover is pretty classic.

few of these may be what you're looking for, but they make great wall art: http://www.pixagogo.com/7180565202

this herbie cover is pretty tasty: http://www.pixagogo.com/Photos/Albums/P ... W43P2N-w__

Good call, b. You can't go wrong with any of the Blue Note album covers. (Yod bless Reid Miles who designed nearly 500 of the Blue Note covers.)

As far as album covers go you can't top Ted Nugent.

The best album cover is Led Zeppelin III

What made it cool was there a wheel inside that you could spin so different images popped up in various holes in the cover. Of course you kids that only had CD's wouldn't know this.

Someone mentioned Blue Note. I think you could do a lot of jazz covers and have it look cool. So many were works of art themselves.

A couple I like are

Charles Mingus - Mingus Ah Um

and Dave Brubeck - Time Out

I thought he was just looking for city scapes or city scenes. Most of those album covers don't fall into that category. :-?
