This is a cool thread.

I always really liked this one as well. Frank McCarthy did the artwork, I've since bought two of his prints including a variant of the one used for the album.

I love early Jeeps and the mountains of Colorado, so this one has always ranked high for me! I've driven on Black Bear Pass (this album is called Black Bear Road). It is a one-way trail with a super cool water fall you drive past on a rocky downhill section and then there are some real tight switch backs all the way to Ouray. You also drive past Bridal Veil Falls, a popular photo spot.

The Silverton area of southwest Colorado has some great 4x4 trails!

Yessongs, for the #1 nomination. Slim pickings after all the great ones mentioned.

A couple few more:

Blind Faith

Blows Against the Empire - Jefferson Starship, Dragonfly pretty neat too.

Free - self titled

Eat a Peach, also Court and Spark - Joni Mitchell, for style class and simplicity.)

Whether or not you like the album or the cover, Floyd's DSOTM is as iconic as you can get. One quick glance and you know the band and the album.

My favorite my be the import version of Electric Ladyland

I was about 11 or 12 when Molly Hatchet's self title album came out. I remember thinking that was the coolest album cover ever.

Yes Gail Collins; the female OJ. "My husband has hearing problems; didn't respond to my calls; so I thought he was an intruder so I shot him." Beautiful woman; so the jury bought it.

And re: great covers. For sheer simplicity and brilliance perhaps nothing tops the image of Mississippi Fred McDowell sitting on some worn wooden steps strumming a guitar with the words "I do not play no rock & roll" in small print

Jefferson Airplane's Long John Silver album. The album cover folded into a replica of a cigar box. When you opened the cover and lifted the image of the cigars it uncovered a photo of a box full of weed.
