      How about Nirvana's Nevermind.

    • Tom

      You dressed so fine

      • Him

        Threw the bums a dime in your prime

        • Hobbson

          You're aware that that's the wrong Dylan song, right?

  • Jin Jung

    #9 is my favorite.

  • h_something

    Why no Physical Graffiti?

    • Heelboy

      Completely agree!

  • Underbaker

    #4 ok there has to be a little photoshop magic going on here, no way that even the trees would line up that perfect.

    • James

      The albums are transparent, allowing background images to show through. The tree's not on the album cover at all.

    • _DoC_

      UnderDerp, clearly Photoshop magic is going on, that is why there is a transparent album cover floating in the middle of the image.

      • Underbaker

        You want to give me a derp for stating they are different from ones in the past, then fine, but despite the PS magic involved I prefer the older ones that just used regular photography and great angles.

        • _DoC_

          UnderDerp, I gave you a derp for stating the obvious. You get a second derp for saying that you stated something that you really didn't. You said nothing about anything being different than ones in the past, only that PS magic was going on. Try re-reading your post and then give yourself a nice big slap on the forehead.

          That said, I do agree that the in-camera shots are better than transposed, but for some of these I don't think the in-camera shots would work as the album cover hides most of the background that would show that it is in the same spot and complete the effect.

            Hey it's a Monday what can I say, my mind was still back on the FLBP post.


    Sad thing is I remember most of these.

  • echogeo

    Awesome album! Turn it up!

    • buick

      For sure, Steely Dan just plain rules. Headphones, some purple, Gaucho, and call it a night.

    • Joe

      Right on. Steely Dan is great. You either love 'em or hate 'em.

      • Tomas

        I love 'em. Pretzel Logic is one of my favorites; glad to see it posted here.

  • smh


  • James

    I'll take anal bum for $500.


      Fail. It's anal bum cover.

      • James

        Fail indeed… I stand corrected

    would have been cooler to let somebody hold the album cover

  • John

    WHO spends time looking for this sh&^?!?

    • Tru Chiver

      the chive. otherwise they wouldn't have a site. KCCO

    • Simon

      People with hobbies. Hobbies that aren't doing anybody any harm, so it's all right.

      Pretty cool in my book. I visit places mentioned in music that I like. Haven't got all that many under my belt, and I don't have a set of cool photos. Keeps me happy though.

  • IrishInNJ

    I think has the patent on this stuff.

  • Nick

    Wow..years of seeing the cover of Highway 61 Revisted and I never put it together that Bob was sitting on steps. Guess I assumed he was sitting in a room somewhere, ala Bringing It All Back Home. #9 is without a doubt the best.

  • heathclif

    Please don't lambaste me for not knowing. So curious.

  • An Asian

    White people make me sad

    • fish

      Really? Then sail back to Asia, back to whatever "Happy" island you're from. Douche.

    • Clint Eastwood

      gooks and fisheads like you make me sick.

  • thomas

    It's like looking at echos of ghosts…

  • dragon2777

    This is the coolest post ever. It is amazing that most places really haven't changed that much

  • metrocenter

    Great post. However on #9 the angle is totally wrong. Just sayin.
