Starter for ten: Elliot Ewitt
Rage Against The Machine. Photo by Malcolm Browne. A bit gruesome but you asked!
Gerhard Richter. (Photorealist painting)
This pic of Manfred von Richtofen’s “flying circus” was taken in 1918. It was used on a very famous LP 51 years later. Recognise it?
Of course. The Brown Bomber.
“Mississippi 1971” by William Eggleston. Who knows the album this was used on?
"Shiroi Hana with White Flower”, taken in 1931 by Sakae Tamura. @steviebee might know the famous 1983 single by a leading UK post-punk band this was used on…
Marlene Dietrich with airmen of the 401st Bomb Group after a ride in a B-17 Flying Fortress nicknamed “Pakawalup”.
This photograph was adapted for Guillaume de Chassy’s album, Letters to Marlene:
I do. The Black Keys.
That’ll be the Banshees’ Dear Prudence. White flower is the English translation of Shiroi hana.
Not a photo but I suppose a photo of a painting.
Hieronymus Bosch - The Garden of Earthly Delights
That’s well worth seeing out in the Prado in Madrid. Having only seen it as an album cover I was surprised how large it is. The detail is unbelievable, and to think it was painted between 1490 and 1510.
In terms of detail there is also the first Fleet Foxes album using a Bruegel.
Calling all you Goths out there! On what sleeve was Homage to Puvis de Chavannes (1949) by Duane Michals used on?
Bauhaus - in the flat field. damn… given myself away
