Foghat, Fool For the City
I just managed to pick this one up today, mostly for the cover, although I do have a guilty soft-spot for 70s 8 track Camaro music. I love the contrast of the urban scene with the rural past-time, and the mustachioed rocker look and solid steel cars that just scream 1975.
Porter Wagoner, The Bottom of the Bottle
Porter Wagoner is the king of gonzo country album covers, and this is his best. The record is a concept album about alcoholism, and the liner notes are written in the character of "Skid Row Joe," a character from one of the songs.
Willie Nelson, Good Times
10cc, How Dare You
10cc were like the bastard child of prog rock and easy listening, as if Pink Floyd had collaborated with Barry Manilow. Speaking of the Floyd, the folks at Hipgnosis, who designed all of their famous album covers, also did this one for 10cc. The front cover is like a scene rom a soap opera. The back cover like something from a Benny Hill sketch:
The gatefold, however, is the best. It shows a bunch of people in a room all on the phone at the same time, and I take to be an oddly prophetic vision of the future.
Fleetwood Mac, Bare Trees
