What’s the strangest album cover you’ve ever seen?

Early album covers were pretty basic and informational…who is on the recording playing what.  Then in the 1930s, Alex Steinweiss came up with the concept of album “cover art.”  The 1960s and 1970s found cover art at a high point, before it began to lose it’s impact with the advent of compact discs.

Mr. Steinweiss recently died at the age of 94. (To honor his legacy, Limelight Magazine has compiled a list – not of the best, rarest, or most creative covers, but the wackiest of the last decade.  Let me know  if you agree, or if you have something even wackier!
