Good work, Arkay. I had decided I was going to leave this forum with an even 500 posts as of yesterday, but I can't resist this game.

#470 is one of the first albums I ever owned: Best of Cream.
#471 is the Moody Blues, A Question of Balance.
#476 is the Residents, Fingerprince.

Next clues....

This weirdo psychedelic freak band put this album out in the 60s; it was their 1st album. The close-up is from the front cover of the album. Gotta look closely though in its swirly mess. The album also has song titles with the word "Freakout" in them.
#29
Image



This is a jazz album from the mid-70s. It is a keyboardist's album, leading the band with drums, bass, sax and a few others sitting in for a couple tunes. Nearly all members are famous (for jazz) in their own right. The close-up is from the back cover.

For some reason I had the idea that #475 was from Creedence Clearwater Revival (although I barely know their albums) and I found it is from the back cover of Green River.

Next clues...
This close-up is from the gatefold of the band's 2nd album. Over the years, I've seen copies of this album all over Chicago used record stores, supposedly because this German rock band with British singer recorded their 3rd album in Chicago in the 70s. Gotta know some under-the-radar 70s rock be aware of this band. They didn't have alot of good albums, but this album ain't bad.

#41

This next album is by an excellent Jazz sax player who has had numerous top shelf bandmembers over the years while not ever becoming a household name in his own right. He has lots of good albums, but this close-up is from a late 60s album, back cover. He put out an album this year, but I haven't heard it yet.

This close-up is from the back of the album cover for their 6th and last of their main albums for this British 70s / 80s band. It wasn't their most popular, but a good album.
