    post your favorites.
    great, beautiful, bizarre, obscure, what have you.

    I remember looking at these Ohio Players album covers when I was a kid in our small town, local record shop. Both fascinating and a little disquieting. Recently I went on an internet safari to find copies of them...not as easy as I thought...decent copies anyway. And it gave me the idea for this thread.

    So post 'em up.
    Esp. album covers that intrigued you as a kid. That stuff interests me.

    I have several stacks of vinyls that I have been meaning to photograph and post the album covers. I should be able to contribute here soon enough.
    There are a few I have posted in in this "Tilted Back" section that i have readily available and online still.

    my dad had this album...when I went up to his house over the summers, I would always look through his record collection (which was awesome)
    this one always caught my attention

    Aw, Freddie Mercury--commanding center stage even on the LP cover.

    Totally had/have the hots for TP. I was 19-20 when this came out. Cover design is perfect.

    Was never a fan of them, but loved the Frazetta covers.

    Last three albums from Circa Survive. Esao Andrews (my favorite artist) does all of their album covers.

    My parents bought this...and never played it.

    Like mixedmedia, I was intrigued by this one, too:

    I considered buying that "Whipped Cream & Other Delights" album at goodwill once just for the cover.
