    Not just by your favorite or most influential musical artist(s), but what is the cover that just won’t leave you alone, or that you (would) hang on your wall? Sgt. Pepper? Purple Rain? Born In The USA? Dark Side of the Moon? Who’s Next? Attach an image if you can.

    It’s a tie:

    A framed copy of Who’s Next still hangs in our powder room next to For Those About To Rock (We Salute You). Honorable mention goes to the censored version of Smell The Glove.

    Well, as an oddball record collector of many, many years, here are some that won't leave me alone... but not for the reasons you would think.

    Remember... you can't "unsee" anything!

    Oh, the irony of death... If Andy Warhol were still alive, he could have made millions on a pop-art rendition of The Faith Tones! I mean, that's like Marilyn Monroe x 3!

    If I have to choose one....
    Danzig’s first album

    Later pressings added the band name. Not as cool.

    That Queen cover is a great choice. That image originally appeared on the cover of Astounding Science Fiction dated October, 1953. The painting is entitled "The Gulf Between", and was intended to be the cover illustration for the story of the same name in that issue.

    The Band (Brian May in particular) were big science fiction fans, and they commissioned the original artist, Frank Kelly Freas, to repaint the cover and include the band in the painting. He also did the inside gatefold painting as well.

    I happen to own a copy of the original magazine (stock photo below, not my specific copy)

    And she was very pregnant at the time of the photo shoot, but the whipped cream hides that fact!;)
