Albums had a lot of good artwork on them. What albums do you find fit for framing and displaying on your walls at home? And which ones "have" you hung on your walls?

* Please post links to the album covers as I'm sure many of us would like to see the album cover you are talking about but are not familiar with it. Many photos can be found on "Google Images".

Thank You
Stevign

Good one stevign!

I've got four up right now, but in honor of this thread I'm going to rotate them out to:

Blue Cheer "Outsideinside" - I dislike the original US release cover, but I have a European cover that has that awesome red streaky close-up photo of the trio - its the picture they use to describe the word "psychedelic" in the encyclopedia.

"Hot Rats" needs to be up for a while.

Something from the Ohio Players wouldn't go amiss.

"Tribute to Jack Johnson" by Miles - so cool!

I only have two LP's hanging on my office wall right now. Wall space is a premium and I just hung a Napa Valley 100 Cassette Rack (http://tinyurl.com/c5s5e55) where I had a couple others.

Bark Psychosis - Codename: Dustsucker
Cocteau Twins - Treasure

Right now in mu office I have three album covers framed because they are three of my all-time favorite albums and special to me.

Bad Company - Bad Co
Rush - 2112
Robin Trower - Bridge of Sighs

We have one in our game room where our pool table is. It's the picture disc of The Beatles "Sargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". My wife has had this for years and I believe it's still factory sealed.

re: "An autographed article by NEIL"

We're just going to assume it isn't Neil Diamond. If it is, I think it best if you just lie to us. ;~)

Took a couple of my nephews to see a Neil Young Bridge Concert (Oct 31, 1999) and parked right in front of the entrance (to Shoreline Amph) is a shiny black vintage hearst from the 1950's and I'm laughing as I wonder whom it belongs to. Well, we are on the approach and out of the hearst comes the loner from La Honda. Nobody, gives him a second look and he heads for a door and "poof" he's inside. To drive to your concert from the ranch in a vintage hearst....It don't get cooler than that!

If I was rich I'd build a music room two stories high with this mural:

Only music memorabilia I still have on a wall in the house is a framed movie poster from 200 Motels. It's just quirky enough not to seem cheesy for this 50-something guy to have on display.

Oh yeah -- and a framed Mylar trace of Ozzy off the Vol4 cover is hanging in the garage. The few "coke mirror" album covers (anyone remember those from the late '70s?) are in storage.

I am a HUGE Beatles fan. Back in May 1998 my parents and I visited London/Liverpool. Upon my return home I visited a store which had some vintage Beatles-related posters for sale. One was a promo for the Capitol release of the Wings album "London Town," my favorite of Paul's solo work. It featured the album cover photo of Paul, Linda and Denny Laine in front of Tower Bridge in London, which we visited on our trip. I bought the poster and had it framed. It now hangs on the wall in my condo living room.

BTW, I love collecting original promo posters for films, albums and concerts. That's another reason why I bought that great "London Town" poster.

Here's a copy of the poster in question.

Stevign,
One I've been meaning to hang is Joy Division's 'Closer'. The original UK Factory version was printed on heavy matte card stock. New Order's 'Movement' for the same reason...

Some years back I purchased an offset poster size print of the iconic shot from Dexter Gordon's 'Ballads' comp and had it dry mounted and framed. You know, the one with Dex disappearing in a haze of cigarette smoke cradling his sax. Looks very cool hangin' high in my music room (an otherwise cluttered disaster zone these days).

Sorry, don't no nuthin' 'bout postin' no links. All my cuffs have buttons anyway. Cheers...

Joy Division's 'Closer' is a pretty cool painting. I have a 36X24 poster of Dexter Gordon 'Ballads'. I LOVE it, I think it's one of the coolest posters I've ever seen, I need to get it framed. I also use it as Desktop Wallpaper.

Very nice (Dexter)! Joy Division too.

Every ECM cover could be on my walls, come to think of it.

They do make some nice atmospheric art.

Labels like ECM, Blue Note, 4AD and Factory earned their props for their attention to graphics and evocative photography. So many striking covers...

A random assortment of others that stick in my mind:

FRIPP & ENO: No Pussyfooting
THELONIOUS MONK: Monk.
FRANK SINATRA: In The Wee Small Hours -and- No One Cares
THIS MORTAL COIL: It'll End in Tears
EDGAR FROESE: Epsilon in Malaysian Pale
KING CRIMSON: Lark's Tongues in Aspic
FELT: Ignite The Seven Cannons
ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN: Heaven Up Here -and- Ocean Rain
KLAUS SCHULZE: Blackdance

This could get out of hand!

tokolosi, I have a Rush 2112 coke mirror in my office. It's not hanging, just restiing against the side of my desk and not really in plain view.

Besides album covers I have a couple posters hanging. I have a Clapton poster from the 80's it's not really that great, but it's in good shape. My favoite poster is still framed and hanging which is a poster of Bad Company from the 70's. Gone are so many other posters, Zeppelin, Queen, Joan Jett, Hendrix are all MIA. I know I had more than that, but these come to mind at the moment.

As for other memorbilia, I have a couple of pins, one from Van Halen's first tour and one from NYC radio station WPLJ from the 1977 Zeppelin shows at MSG. I wish I had kept all my ticket stubs, especially Zeppelin, Tull, Yes, Bad Company etc. from the 70's.

Blue Note for sure. Especially the beautiful Jazz scene photographs by the late great Herman Leonard.

I could totally love having a large poster size of This hanging on my wall:

Pulse

edit: No I don't actually have it on my wall, just think it would look great.

vivazappa, real trippy. I have had the Sly And The Family Stone - There's A Riot Goin' On record on my wall for 15 years.

The other record i have on my apartment wall is PJ Harvey - Dry.

A concert poster of the 1973 Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz fest with an incredible lineup. The first free concert Warren Helman put on in Golden Gate Park then called Strictly Bluesgrass with the skyline and Transamerica Pyramid behind an old shack and tractor, real cool. And a bootleg VU poster of a girls face from the Avolon ballroom in the sixties. (the picture on my profile has the VU poster in it)

An album only to be hung on your front door to scare away salesmen, Jehovah's Witnesses and mother-in-laws.
