    I dont know how to do the picture hosting, but i see more cool stuff on lesser popular? commercial? bands because they need them. Captain Beyond had a hologram glued on the front (so did the Stones, Satanic Request). Mandrake Memorial had an eschulon? labrynth. Tull had some crazy center fold outs.

    That's Smell the Glove. The record company wasn't happy with the original artwork.
