    rule number one for album covers should be "shirts, please".
    At least for males.

    I agree 100%.

    Now, back to what we are listening to:

    I would like to include this album in the thread. (The sound quality is absolutely outstanding as well. In other words, please release an SHM-SACD of this album).:

    I spent a little time looking at this thread so as not to do much repeating. I’d like to second the comment about the first Dire Straits cover art. It looks like it could be an ECM cover, which gives away the fact that I’m listening to a lot more jazz these days. I am a little surprised that no one has yet mentioned Jethro Tull. Thick as a Brick is my favorite as an entire album. It’s kind of a shame that you have to get up and flip it over. Tull concerts were very well worth the time and they are doing a 50th anniversary tour this year.

    Jethro Tull was the closest I ever came to permanently losing my hearing at a concert!
