    Sorry, nope. Although the skull is reputedly a biker tattoo. Release date was Jan 30 1968, so not metal. Highly influential album though…the crucial bit is a black tattoo on a black cover. To all intents and purposes it’s a black cover with the album title and band name in White at the top…

    Too metal? Don’t let my moniker distract you. There’s NO metal.

    Some more clues

    1. Black cover with black skull tattoo. Band and title white at the top. See above

    2. Bearded man with leather jacket, collar turned up in the rain. – that metal classic Marvin Gayes What’s Goin On

    3. Blonde woman in bikini against an ancient landscape. Album title is spelt out in nekked people font. The cover is a still from 1 million years BC and the woman is Raquel Welch. Released in 1990.

    4. English king (with many wifes) with cut out of head where the cd inside rotates with five different heads (my favourite being the cat one….). Okay that one is actually pretty obscure. This is probably far too obscure so I’ll just link to the cover….but I’ll need to photograph it first for the cat head… 😀

    5. Woman with long black hair and a red dress floating in water. Artist is both an MBE and a Mercury Prize winner. Album from 1995

    6. A man staring out to sea, some sun loungers, a parasol and a mostly buried car…. Cover contains both sand and sea. The mostly buried car is a Cadillac and the album was unavailable for decades until it’s cd re-release and it’s by a major league artist.

    6. On the Beach – Neil Young

    Is 5 PJ Harvey?

    1 is White Light White Heat

    Tbh I never knew it had a tattoo on it – just thought it was a black cover

    g/tim – right on all counts.

    I also didn’t realise WL/WH had a tattoo for years either until one day the light hit the right way….

    No. 4: probably my favourite cd cover :mrgreen:


    Cat Head by Metalheart-UK, on Flickr

    Follow the link for the other heads…

    The Napoleon one- wonderfully obscure 🙂 Never heard of them but will now need to look into it.

    I can see that bikini one in my head, can’t place it…

    Perhaps the bikini one is also a bit obscure.

    final clue: features Kramer & Anna Magnusson.

    cody, the F…, er, Napoleon one is worth the checking out. Fave tracks are Laundry Shop & Italy.

    last correct answer was grevioustim. Then too many obscure ones!

    To be fair DezB only 2 are obscure, rest are positively mainstream!

    I’ll go….

    A red and blue picture of a mans face, wearing sunglasses. The picture takes up the whole cover. In the sunglasses lenses are 2 identical pictures of the band, 4 men.

    Now, warton’s one sounds familiar. Slightly distracted by the rugby though

    This one is going to stump people:
    Painting of a lake, in the foreground is a swan, looking away, rearing back, wings curved in front and head rearing back, with a huge hand and arm reaching towards the swan out of the sky, small castle tower on some land on the right.

    Dunno, it’ll come to me – but you gotta get the last one before it’s your go 😉

    XTC?

    Oops, sorry. And warton’s is horribly, naggingly familiar, I can visualise it, but I’ll be damned if I can think who it is!
    Buggerit! 😡

    It does seem familiar. CountZero’s one – I can only see this picture in my mind!


    (Not on a short, obviously!)

    Last Clue, Americana / Alt. Country band

    He he, I can see where you’re coming from, Dez, but no nekkid burds on the cover I’m thinking of, and as a clue it’s a pretty obscure British Prog band and was released in 1972.
    I’m also struggling with metalheart’s bikini cover as well, that one just doesn’t ring any bells at all.
    Still annoyed I can’t think what warton’s one is, that’s going to drive me absolutely nuts now!
    Ah, it wouldn’t be The Jayhawks, would it?

    This is CZ’s victory!

    (I wouldn’t have known)

    I cheated on the Swan one….never heard of the band, deleted that post.

    Wow! How the hell did you get that? I’ve seen the Jayhawks one, but Gidrologrigog? Jeez

    Cheating’s good if it puts me out of my misery! 😀
