Hall of Fame - Best Album Covers

Best Album Covers

Here is a selection (in chronological order of original release) of the most elaborate album covers of all time. Unfortunately not all of them have been released on mini LP (not yet anyway).

You could argue that some of these are actually "the most annoying album covers of all time" given that it can sometimes be quite difficult to get the final product (the vinyl or CD discs) out without potentially dropping and thereby scratching them.
