You got the lot! This was the little paragraph I came across on the Darkside of the Moon Cover
- Spoiler: show
2 and 3 are easy with a magnifying glass as are 8 and 9 Steve .....Nothing hidden, Name on the cover.

This time its on the pure artwork alone, and I've gone novel (in parts) rather than just churn out my own stock of well-loved album covers. So heres the nine.
I have delved.....one of the selections is from the origins of album art....delve yourself if you feel inclined. Who is it by and when was it and who did he work for
Scanning through a blog post about him with many examples of his work I came across the one in the bottom right. Inspiration for DSOTM perhaps or was DSOTM inspired by the Black Magic Chocolate box of the time, or the bands fedupness with surreal artwork on their albums Anyway again scope for a delve yourself and report back with the "correct story" and the name of the design studio who produced many of Pink Floyd's covers.
I let the top left album play on and enjoyed it, again a novelty but I have a sneaking suspicion I have come across the artist before within our humble forum, and wouldn't be at all surprised if our West Sussex correspondent was responsible. Again if you want to....find out the name of the artist or Name the full set of nine
The defendant pleads 'Not Guilty' Again !!!
With my paddling around today in the history of album cover art, and coming across Deceptive Bends/Houses of the Holy/Alan Parsons Project in my travels I should be able to find the common link. Came across many of the major players in album cover designs over the years so I'm going to plump for one of them without checking my answer, and without looking up the exact spelling.
Its all a matter of personal opinion, and no reflection on the music content at all but even the greats have the odd unimaginative album cover in their catalogue.NewcastleFalcon wrote: ↑12 May 2020, 21:02Maybe someone can come up with their choice of the 9 dullest album covers for our perusal, to chuck overboard before the desert island is reached. You know the type of thing "5 band Members standing in a row", Andrew and George looking miserable etc
