This has probably been done before, maybe on Conan O'Brien, I dunno. I was looking at records and decided to take some pictures.

Keep in mind that close-ups can mess with the color or skew.
All of these pics are from vinyl jackets or sleeves.
Some are easier/harder than others...

Name what album each picture is taken from.

:( indeed... as a vinyl collectin' kinda guy, I was hoping you'd show up. Give it some time, then maybe a while from now, you'll pick up an album and say "Thats it!" . :)

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?
