Ohio Players Honey. The outside cover folds out to a full length pic but the real treat was the inside cover (also full length when folded out). Can't find a decent 'non-sponsored' link but google it, it's worth it.

Not necessarily a favorite, but certainly worth posting.


As a kid mine was Herb Albert’s Tijuana Brass-Whipped Creme and other Delights for the same reason (now too). Sorry, can't upload but you can easily find it. Please post if you can.

But Abbey Road is probably mine of all time. I guess you have to like the band the album belongs to as well, persuades you anyway.

Scorpions Love Drive...
I thought of that one, too. They DID sell it in the States (at least in my area they did) for while b/c I have it! But changed after the Tipper Gore types complained that their kids were bringing it home.

Beatles 'White album'. It looks like this:

The Beatles

Okay, seriously - E Pluribus Funk by Grand Funk Railroad.


The original vinyl cover back in 1972 when it was released was completely round and covered with a silver film to resemble a 12" coin.

20 years ago I acquired a large stash of records.

If you include the cover, inside cover (fold type) and back cover, I like Doobie Brothers Toulouse Street and some of the old Yes albums.

I never listened to Herb Alpert, but this album was pivotal in my development.

The cheesecake cover of Ritmo Caliente is just a bonus. It's a great frikkin record. Cal Tjader was the man.

And here is a classic, with the real zipper on the vinyl release.

I was always impressed with this cover when i was younger.....Maybe just because it had Zero the Hero's head about to fly through the quim of the moon.

I figured I better follow up "Sticky Fingers" with something more interesting on a primal level. I don't know the album, but the cover works for me, lol.

I was never impressed with that. The zipper fooked up the artwork on my copy of Yessongs! That was a triple album, and cost me a bloody fortune at the time! :mad:
Understood. Given that all my vinyl is now confined to boxes in the basement, I am no longer too worried about the covers, lol.
