Tough choice, can't make up my mind but what about;

Hawkwind – Space Ritual,
Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention – We’re only in it for the money,
John Lennon – Two Virgins

all from the days of vinyl of course

I have the original Cruved Air picture disc (the artwork is the disc itself - plays like a JCB but looks nice..

and "Happy to meet, sorry to part" by Horslips, an octagonal multipage sleeve styled on a concertina.

Another favouruite is the fold-out newspaper of Jethro Tull's "Thick as a Brick". The news stories contain cryptic refrences to some of the teachers at Blackpool Grammar school which Ian Anderson and a couple of the others (and me Wink ) attended

I think this has to be my all-time favourite. Bear in mind that it was from the '70s, when digital manipulation wasn't even a twinkle in the eye!

Abbey Rd - ~The Beatles
Any of the first 4 Roxy Music Albums
Exotic Creatures - The Sparks
Eldorado - ELO
Discovery - ELO
The Wall - Pink Floyd
Pin Ups - Bowie
Heroes - Bowie

The early (Peter gabriel) Genesis album covers were cool, especially Nursery Cryme. My all time favourite though is a little known irish prog/folk/rock band of the same era, with this. I even painted it onto a T-shirt back in my youth...

I love the cover of Journal for plague lovers by Manic street preachers.
