Number one would have to be " Smell the Glove " by Spinal Tap; In the immortal words of Nigel Tufnel: " the question is...how much more black can it get it(the cover)? The answer would be " None."

LOL! One of my favorite quotes from "Spinal Tap"!!
I found that cover quite funny; a poke at the sometimes silliness of album "art"!! <img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Well, well, wouldn't you know my fellow yesers are also Spinal Tap
fans too! I love Spinal Tap. I think "Shark Sandwhich" should be on the list too. I'm just thankful that Yes has not had to sacrifice
Alan White for fame and fortune. As for Tap, it just doesn't get any better than "Sex Farm". ...."plowing through your bean fields.
Gettin' out my pitchfork and pokin your hay". Such wonderful lyrics.

My sister gave me a beautifully framed and matted set list - that her husband got from them after one of their concerts- it has a foot print on it - I wonder whose. It also has their guitar picks with their names on them. I have to hide it when the inlaws come over!

I don't need a list of 10 of the worst album covers of all-time, the worst album cover ever is Yes - Talk. I love the album to death but the cover "art" sucks.

Well, I need some time to think about the top 10 worst album covers, but the one that always comes to mind as being absolutely stupid and ridiculous is Black Sabbath's Paranoid. Actually, Talk is even better than Paranoid.

How about Ozzy's "Bark at the Moon". Oh, such darkness from the Prince of Darkness. Actually, compared to today's music - Ozzy's
music almost fits into the genre trying in vain to scare you - without any results though.

Talk about mud flaps, my girls got em! Anyone have the DVD? The voiceover with the guys in-character is just about funny as the movie. In Yesspeaks, Wakeman does a little ode to Tap in trying to find the stage.

The would be a nod to Tap. Not an ode. Doh!
