    I have a large 'Back Catalog' poster. I didn't think it was an actual album cover.

    I don't think it was actually used as an album cover but may have been used as box set cover.

    I've got Storms book somewhere, i'll have to have a look.

    These are two more Storm and or Hipgnosis covers that are cool:

    I've not got that one. I'm sure the one I have mainly focuses on Floyd.

    The ladies by the pool photo was for the 'back catalogue' hence the paintings on their back. They did a few more including other Hipgnosis / Storm album covers. ( http://www.nevermindthebuzzkills.com...zzkills-remix/ ) This is one that features most of the covers but was never used.



    Your's for just 850! Ouch!

    I agree about this being a lost art (If you'll excuse the pun!).

    Part of the fun of getting a new album was the sleeve art.

    There are several that I think are cool but that aren't really appropriate for the board. The Scorpions stuff; "Lovedrive" with the bubblegum, and "Animal Magnetism". Same for a couple from Blackfoot; "Vertical Smiles", both the studio version and the live one. And "Amorica" from The Black Crowes.

    This is such a great thread. It's interesting to see all of the different things people are fans of.

    There's another Clapo album with a black guitar that's melting over the side. Not sure which one....

    This artwork was done by the late Bill Narum. He did a lot of work with ZZ Top, including other lp covers, tourbooks, posters, shirts, caps, and even stage backdrops. He also worked with lots of other artists.

    Not to veer off thread here, but this poster was also done by Bill Narum (see previous post). A few familiar names on here. This gig was in 1974, in what is now Darrell K. Royal Stadium, where The University of Texas Longhorns play football in Austin. Check out the prices; eight bucks in advance, ten bucks at the door! You could buy tickets all over Texas at places like grocery stores or drug stores or head shops, or you could send in your money with a S.A.S.E., and they'd send your ticket back to you.
