Favourite Music Album Artwork

Wed May 02, 2007 7:53 am

I love Boston's Artworks

I just realized what the ship's on them were. It's a Guitar! and the on Third Stage is an Organ! I can't believe I didn't see that!

Boston:

Don't Look Back:

Third Stage:

Walk On:

Greatest Hits:

Corporate America:

Their Best Album, with the best artwork after my Boston Vote

Chicago 13 is pretty sweet too.

Their Best Album

Unfortunately, it was the most independent and divisive one. Most of Paul and John's tunes were done all by themselves; Ringo quit and had to be coerced back...etc.

Still a great album. I give Revolver the nod for best, Abbey Road next, then The White Album, then Pepper.

Of the music I listen to Cafe del Mar has great stuff...not only the artwork but the graphic design elements of the whole package, the sleeve notes etc, my wife works in GD and loves their work! The music is great too!

Volumen Siete is amazing from Café del mar. I love the picture on the cover and inside the booklet: it has an amazing 'Ibiza feel' to it (too bad I can't find a quality image of it).

Earth Wind & Fire 'All N All'

Yeah I remember this one. My father has it and as a little kid I was intrigued by the cover.
