Out on a limb, before I go to bed:

35. Eve - APP?

And then the one with note paper - is it from 1973-74?

52. Subterranean modern?

Sorry, 35 and 52, no. The note paper is not from 73-74. I will also say that the note paper one is not a very well known album among the public, musicians more so. Sleep well!

I keep going back and forth as to whether I should give out clues for any of em. My gut sez I shouldn't, as people will likely run into the albums over time anyway. But, for Memorial Day Weekend Only, if someone wants a clue on a specific pic, lemme know. I might come up with something.
I said before that some are easier/harder. Some are very hard and I would be thrilled if they were actually guessed. Others are from such popular albums that I can't believe no one has guessed them yet.

#34 is the Nice, Elegy.

#43 is Eno, Here Come the Warm Jets

#50 is John Abercrombie, Timeless

#52 is Robin Trower, Caravan to Midnight

I know I recognize a couple of others but can't place them off the top of my head...

Ooh: #21 is Grand Funk Railroad, Good Singin' Good Playin'.

40. I'm thinking Faust IV or Rick Wakeman's The Six Wives of Henry VIII, but unsure about those ink spots...

Nope, sorry.
Let's see... #40 is a band, not solo artist, but led by a drummer. Also, the staves are at an angle in the picture. They are also at an angle on the full pic. Dunno if that helps, but don't wanna give it away.

#61 is PiL, Second Edition

#65 is the Moody Blues, Days of Future Passed

...and #64 is going to bug me until I place it! Also I'm still trying to remember where I know the mustache/wristwatch/Moog guy from.

I think you mean this one:
46.
Image

So, while I am hesitant to give clues that are too direct, I can certainly say when something isn't correct. I don't believe there is a Moog in that picture. Even if I happen to be mistaken in that, he isn't a Moog performer for the album in question.
