beggarsbanquet Greatest Album Covers

[photogallerylink id=72876 align=left]With record store day coming up tomorrow, and visuals rapidly disappearing from the world of recorded music, some used vinyl lps to look for:

  1. “The White Album” by the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beatles[/lastfm]. Elegant, mysterious and it drove the record company crazy. Make sure it includes the inserts.
  2. “Live At Leeds” by the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Who[/lastfm]. How do you fight the bootleggers? Release an official one and fill it with some of the greatest maximum r&b ever recorded. Once again, make sure  the inside paperwork is included.
  3. “Speaking in Tongues” by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Talking Heads[/lastfm]. You want the limited edition, Robert Rauschenberg version, but the music is excellent  no matter how you cover it.
  4. “Paul’s  Boutique” by the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beastie Boys[/lastfm]. Ludlow Street in Manhattan has never looked more panoramic.
  5. “Beggar’s Banquet” by the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rolling Stones[/lastfm]. The original bathroom graffiti art was rejected by the music suits, but the invitation cover is just as good.
