Their Satanic Majesties Request - 3D gatefold cover The Rolling Stones Their Satanic Majesties Request 1967.12 The front cover shows the band members within a 3D effect backdrop. No additional image occurs when the cover is tilted but a nice effect none the less.
The Who - Live at Leeds The Who Live at Leeds 1970.05 Brown cardboard (manila folder / bootleg like) cover includes a poster, letters, contracts, postcard, pictures etc.
Curved Air - Airconditioning - Vinyl picture disc Curved Air Airconditioning 1970.11 One of the earliest examples of a vinyl picture disc. This is of course not reproduced in the CD format - but they tried all the same... arguably with little success!
Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers - early Japanese Mini LP version (made in USA) Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers 1971.04 Conceived by Andy Warhol, executed by Craig Braun (who also created School's Out (Alice Cooper), Big Bambu (Cheech and Chong) and the box for the 1972 orchestral version of Tommy (The Who))
Not available as a mini LP Alice Cooper School's Out 1972.07 The cover, cut in the shape of a desk, complete with fold out flaps on the bottom, opens up (like a desk - from the front) to reveal the disc enclosed in a pair of real "panties".
Pink Floyd - black plastic almost anonymous packaging Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here 1975.09 This album was originally released in a sealed black plastic bag. Pink Floyd originally wanted to leave the packaging completely anonymous. The record company won at the end of the day and a sticker was added.
In Through the Out Door - water sensitive inner sleeve - wet to reveal colours Led Zeppelin In Through the Out Door 1979.08 The album comes in a brown paper bag (no big deal - and a little bit too similar to Floyd's WYWH above) but the inner sleeve has water sensitive images - the type common as children's colouring-in books in the 60s. When painted with a damp-wet brush the colours are revealed. Also, there were 6 variations of the main cover issued - the gimmick being that you did not know which version you were getting until you removed the brown paper bag.
Speaking In Tongues - hard plastic sleeve sleeve - rotating part to change images Talking Heads Speaking In Tongues 1983.05 The album comes in a transparent hard plastic case with images screenprinted in yellow and cyan in front and back. In the front includes another magenta screenprinted image over a transparent circle that can be rotated like a moving wheel, this produces different images in a tridimensional fashion way.
