I new that the font used for the Grand Wazoo close up above was a give away, but I've never seen the copy that has that on the cover, it might even have been a bootleg for all I knew so I bowed out. I also recognised the bird as being from led zeppelin iii but I didn't get around to checking my CD just to be sure. I don't have a huge collection of music like some people so I have little or no chance in this charming diversion and I couldn't even be decisive about the ones I knew.

I'll bet I know who the artist is for #117 even though I've never so much as glanced at one of his albums. But who else plays a Gibson Byrdland?

It's tough to guess these, doubly tough when you start including the inner sleeve pictures. I've only guessed two; but don't own many of these albums. Some of the pics seem extremely vague, and I'm surprised they're being correctly guessed.

Number 94 is bugging me. (I keep thinking Whistle Rymes-but it's not).

tweezers / polydigm / bracton -
Thanx for the comments. I've been trying to throw in some pics from every level of difficulty. Even so, the ones I think of as difficult keep being proven to not be. I thought no one would have a Mae West album! Miss Kitty picked it up just out of curiousity. On the other hand there are many unsolved pics that are Classic Rock, Frank Zappa, Frank Zappa Alumni and albums that I have also seen posted on threads like What Are You Listening To Right Now? etc.... I don't think anyone should know all of em, but anyone who likes album art should spot one now and then.
Anyway, its just for fun. I've been hit hard by Allergies this year and have spent a lot of time indoors dealing with it. I just got back from the doc. Passed the strep throat test, but still sick, so I'm staying home from work. Ugh.

#84 is King Crimson, In the Wake of Poseidon.

#94 is Chunga's Revenge.

#16 is the inner sleeve from the original Shut Up 'n' Play Yer Guitar (or SUNPYGSM, or ROTSOSUNPYG).

All Pix in this post have been solved! :)

As with Mae West, there is at least one album in this bunch that people probably shouldn't hear... at least the one I'm thinkin of is marginally FZ-related :)

Stellar results slime! Only caveat, and I gotta do it, by all the bylaws of gameroolznsuch, is to give Shrewnews the win for The Doors. However, that is definitely balanced out by the incredible win with "Would He Really Choose Tammy?" Faye Bakker! Again, stellar! :)
