||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.
||Live at Leeds
||1970.05 Brown cardboard (manila folder / bootleg like) cover includes
a poster, letters, contracts, postcard, pictures etc.
||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!
||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
||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".
||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
||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
||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.
