I wrote a paper about album cover art for one of my college photography classes. My prof loved it, though she said, rightly so, that she detected an overly Susan Sontag-ian influence. lol.

Yeah. All the albums I think are great also have great cover art. They're the ones where everything gelled, where the music, the art, and the packaging all speak to each other, and where they all say something about the larger context, social, cultural.

Nice. What is it?

Again, people, let's remember to identify the album we show if it's not clear from the cover art what it is. Don't try to be cool by thinking you're cool by not doing this. It's not cool.

I have one and I'm willing to give you 50% discount!
so only half a zillion bucks for you... or 1000 euros, whichever is more these days.

gmku 03.10.2012 12:44 PM

Okay, well, just let me know when you have a realistic price. I'd be glad to take it off your hands for the right price.

ok, you can have it for free!

gmku 03.10.2012 01:08 PM

Deal. Should I pm you with my address? Want anything for shipping?

pokkeherrie 03.10.2012 01:10 PM

yes, shipping & handling would be about 1000 euros.

gmku 03.10.2012 01:25 PM

Okay. Go ahead and ship. I'll send you a money order when I've received the LP.

So, 1,000 euros is about, what, 10 USD or so these days?

pokkeherrie 03.10.2012 01:30 PM

It's actually way less than 10 USD, but I can't accept USD, only euros, sorry.

So if you paypal me 1000 euros (less than 10 USD!!!) I'll send it right away!

gmku 03.10.2012 01:39 PM

Yeah, right.

Someone (E?) please remind me when I'm less drunk to make a list of the best album covers ever.

I would enjoy that very much.
