Which Zep album has the best cover art and why?

Recommended Posts

Physical Graffiti got a grammy for best cover art.

It's on 96 and 98 St. Mark's Place in New York.

Plus it's pretty badass.

Mothership is the one I've always loved, it's really striking and has loads of indifferent intricate parts everywhere

So they really couldn't care less? :)

I love the art/cover work on Houses of the Holy. It has this mystical other world feeling to it.

It expands on that nicely when you open the album up to the center artwork. The colors are great too.

The sentimentality of this being the first Zeppelin album I bought also influences my judgement. ;)

i'm not a huge fan of it either. mothership even less .....

Neither is on the same plain of awfulness as the Early Days/Latter Days set.

Hard to choose, but since it sums up Zeppelin's music so well(modern yet rustic) I'll go with IV/Zoso/Untitled/Runes

On the subjust of the latest covers (Mothership/Celebration Day) I agree with the above post on the lack of shall we say "imagination" They seem to be basic to a fault and not a good "blend' of the colours used. Now right up, I myself could do no better so I am thankful we have something to hold in our hands even it it was just and old brown cover with " Pb " :)) I just wish they had made us "think" just a bit more. My 2cents.

Definitely Led Zepp III as the kaleidoscope thingy was so exciting. There were pictures of Carmen Plant when she was little and all different pictures of the band. Great album too, when I first put it on the turntable and heard "We come from the land of the ice and snow" I was enraptured.
