1. The Beatles- Hey Jude
I love this photo so much. It probably spawned all the era-themed band photo shoots we see so much today.
2. Neutral Milk Hotel- On Avery Island
Colorized black and white photo, carnival theme, yes!
3. The Clash- London Calling
I’ve mentioned this album before because of it’s punk rock take on Elvis Presley’s first album cover. It’s a classic.
4. Led Zeppelin- Led Zeppelin
There might be a black and white or vintage photography theme to this list, but this contrast-y historic photo of the Hindenburg zeppelin burning is a great tribute to the airship and namesake of the band Led Zeppelin.
5. White Stripes- De Stijl
If you know me at all, you know that I love the art movement De Stjil. And an album cover paying tribute to such a great style is worth the purchase price.
