There's also this one cover that i can't find right now; it looks like a cheap CD-R cover with a handwritten title. Looked quite funny in the store.

I'm the one in the picture, sitting on a giant cabbage in Mexico, circa 1978.

It also could be this one:


Which looks much more like a real CDR.
"To understand me, you'll have to swallow a world." Or maybe your words.

Yes dev0, that was it. But AtaqueEG's is also a good example.

There were some crazy covers back in the days, for example, one had a blinking LED inside (i don't remember the artist... U2.. Prince.. Bowie?). Or the experiments with different materials (Pearl Jam - Vitalogy)...

"pink floyd - pulse" had a blinking led insinde (on the side, not on the front cover IIRC).

Yes, it was on the side. That must be at least 5 or 6 years ago. I remember how some LEDs were already out of power, it was a pretty amusing sight in the shelf.

Nektar was a british band, but famous almost only in Germany during the Krautrock era

@rc55:  That's funny!  I guess my whole encoded collection would belong under that cover, since it's all in --alt-preset insane...

@Floydian Slip:  I have to agree about the Shine On box cover as well.  rjamorim introduced me to this cover image, and it's definitely among the best I've ever seen...Storm's a genious!

My favorite album covers and (booklet art) are mostly drawn by Travis Smith, whose work is quite fine indeed and should be checked out by all connoisseurs of album art:

You may know Travis Smith via his CD covers for Katatonia, Death, Control Denied, Iced Earth, Devin Townsend, Strapping Young Lad, and many others.

I've always been partial to The King
  Also, the cover of Paul Desmond/Jim Hall's Glad to Be Unhappy, which I might end up scanning because the link quality is poor.

Rather than tick off all the dial-uppers, I created a small gallery of some I like.

You can see them here.

I thought about an entire cover art collection. But when Photoshop got done it amounted to 45 pages and over 25+ MB's!

Eh, maybe some other time.
