I'm going with this one, self-titled by a band called Bodhi Tree, whom I met in California some years ago, playing in an Irish pub. AFAIK, they never made the big time which was a pity. They wrote and played some great tunes.
The album cover is a plaster cast of the percussionist's girlfriend's face according to what the band members told me at the time. Unlucky girl, but definitely creative.

Art is a fantasy. Your heart is your pleasure. Enjoy!
Related to this topic, perhaps, is my question: Do you have any albums that are in your collection for no other reason than the cover art? As in, you don't like the music but you have to have the artwork, for whatever reason? I don't have many albums like this, but I have a few where the artwork is compelling enough that I can't do without the record. One is that infamous Mom's Apple Pie album -- the music, as I remember (haven't played it in a while), is rather mediocre late-60s blues-rock but I like owning the record for the controversial cover. Then there are several CTI jazz albums from the late 1960s and early 1970s -- the photography on the cover was incredible, the music inside not so much.
Be good to yourself at least once a day.

Yes songs. Quad fold, great art.
ELP Tarkus is cool too.
'Music isn't just about the music' has the brilliant album cover. I can't forget this cover forever.
I always thought Jim O'Rourke's "Insignificance" cover was memorable:

New to the site and new to this thread I thought of Captain Beyond right away. The album (and awesome title song) is Sufficiently Breathless. They were formed from castoffs from Deep Purple and a couple other Brit bands...awesome stuff!
