Speed of Life. The sublime strangeness of this David Bowie photo tells you everything you need to know about the creative madness of his Berlin period.
The cover was memorably defaced by Bowie himself decades later. The more commonly known US cover is nice enough but makes it look like a conventional singer-songwriter album and Kate Bush is anything but.
It took a German painter schooled in surrealism to create its mix of African folk art and psychedelia. Largely written by bandmembers Ian Anderson, John Evan, and Jeffrey Hammond-Hammond with help from Chrysalis staffer and former journalist Roy Eldridge , the famous newspaper cover of Thick as a Brick is full of cross-references and cerebral wit — just like the music — and Anderson said it took just as much work.
The baby in question, Spencer Elden, even recreated the photo 25 years later. This cover is Roger Dean at his most vivid. When you walked into a record store, you could see this album clear across the room.
No wonder the clever lads in XTC loved it. A good cover became a great one the moment when a bored Johnny Ramone decided to give the photographer the finger. Nobody ever slung a jacket over their shoulder that well. Most of the classic Blue Note covers were full of bright graphics and exuberant photos and lots of exclamation marks!
This iconic album cover said it all about coy mids sexuality, bachelor-pad style. Despite its daring appearance, if you looked closely, the whipped-cream clad model was actually wearing a wedding dress. Finding an album cover that captured the genre-pushing ambition of To Pimp A Butterfly was a tall order, but Kendrick Lamar and TDE were up to the task, as K dot assembled his hometown crew for a victorious party on the White House lawn, stomping on the symbol of a weaponized criminal justice system.
The Stones always had attention-grabbing covers and Let It Bleed was equally unique and surreal. This style of art would be associated with psychedelic music from here on out, though Crumb was a bit anti-hippie himself.
Which of course leads us to…. A rare case where a parody of the above Elvis cover becomes a work of art in itself. It also made it essential to own the original, fold-out vinyl. Looking for more? Discover the worst album covers of all time. Are you kidding me? Black Moses by Isaac Hayes! You are not being serious here…. Or any Molly Hatchet cover? Kiss Alive 1 captured the raw live energy deffo should have been there.
Although…you have captured many…. The only rock album cover ever painted by Norman Rockwell. Roger Dean along with Hipgnosis and maybe a few others is one of the most noteworthy album cover artists who did some of the most recognizable art work especially for progressive rock bands. Where is Quicksilver Happy Tails? Rick Griffin artwork. No Uriah Heep? Omission faux pas in my eyes to this list.
For the artwork AND the music. The Moody Blues had at least six or seven albums that were better than most everything on this list! Great Selection, with a bit of a bias for British and U.
Just to name a few. So good to hear of Crawler again. Here are 2 that sprang to mind. And, Guitars that destroyed the world. Great album, great cover. What is it wit all the Beatles albums????
Talk about overkill. The White Album??? I do like the Beatles but unfortunately they are rammed down peoples throats. It was creativity to the nth degree, man! If you had any serious knowledge about The Beatles and their influence on the entire world with fashion, language, music and more, you would not ask this question.
Read some good books about them. Everybody since has been influenced by their music and creative style. If you had actually lived through the 60s you would know what it meant to the world of music. Also with no picture. We know now who the real fool really is….
Then came Black Sabbath…. Those are all iconic albums or most of them anyway but not necessarily iconic album covers. However, when an album itself becomes iconic for example Close to the Edge by Yes then usually the cover becomes iconic too.
Not always but a lot of the time. Missing: Vs. Basically no female artists and the women that appear on the covers of the albums of the male artists are all showing their tits. Glad to see the original Electric Ladyland cover. Interesting that they all seem to be from the vinyl era,no cd artwork Juicy Lucy? Breakfast in America is one of my all time favorite albums that I can listen to over and over. I have planned my holidays around his tour dates. Hope to see him when he comes to the US and Canada next month and in Dec, too.
I thought the first Bad Company had a very iconic look to it…the large logo against the stark black background. Yeah,my first tattoo was Rainbow Rising…think that artwork rocks.. Some for consideration…. Disappointed but not surprised to see no Iron Maiden or Megadeth covers in there. I think Adam Ant and the Ants should be included as well.
Adam created some of the most iconic visuals in musical history. This list is so lame! A lot of good covers here from good albums. But so many are so lame, even stuff that I like! There are better Zeppelin covers, and I would think at least 1 from the Moody Blues would be on here! Who made this list? Would be nice to actually officially credit them too! I do not know where you culled the images for this article, but whoever was responsible is clearly a dunderhead. The image for The Ramones debut album is incorrect, it is an image that has someone had a non-Ramone cut and pasted onto the cover.
Also, try to get images from original LP and not the CD. Most fucking annoying. Playing Possum — Carly Simon Of course, this a personal preference. Pretty iconic. Gotta go with just about any of the 30 or so covers Warhol designed, just because of his name, the rarity, and therefore their collectibility… Sticky Fingers and Banana covers are among the most recognizable.
How about some love for the greatest live album ever recorded? Little Feat — Waiting for Columbus Killer artwork, killer shows.
The album cover that started it all the most iconic Herb Alpert and the Tiajuana Brass the one with the naked girl covered in whipped cream , WTF how could this not be included really. My thoughts exactly. Iconic is a great word to describe that album cover. What are you trying to prove? Who cares??? That cover is supposed to suggest she WAS naked because she could easily have been.
It has really good music also. Have a mono and a stereo copy. The reason? The cover depicts one of the greatest rock guitarists in his prime! A masterpiece! T Rex electric warrior. And their album absolutely free as well.
Good thing that several people remember the 3d captain beyond cover. Scorpions fly to the rainbow. Neil Young on the beach. Everything in the cover, from the sepia tone photo, to the clothes to the typography was the antithesis of the sixties aesthetic and announced a new music rooted in the past.
The best Electric Ladyland cover was the one with all the nude girls on it….. I still have my copy of it, they were on the front and back of the album.
One big picture…. I grew up shopping in the vinyl era, and there were so many great covers then. We did a few tours and started to get some good reactions. We definitely had some magic nights. It was like, OK - this is the kind of band I want to be in.[12"] ( gram audiophile vinyl lp + 3-panel insert) movlp faith no more - the real thing (reissue).
