    Dark throne - a Blaze in the Northern Sky

    Or Dark throne - Transylvanian Hunger.
  • Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson (left a very impressionable effect).

    The reason Floyd did well, was that they were one of ther first to realise that covers sold the record inside, as all their fans were tooo spaced out to open the sleeve.

    IAN: ...uh, we feel, I mean, we feel and it seems to be facts that, uh...the company is rather down on the cover. Is that the case?

    BOBBI: Yes.

    IAN: You can give it to me straight, you know.

    BOBBI: Listen umm... they don't like the cover, they don't like the cover.

    IAN: Uh huh, well that is certainly straight.

    BOBBI: They find it very offensive and very sexist.

    IAN: Well what exactly...do you find offensive, I mean, what's offensive?

    BOBBI: IAN, you put a greased naked woman...

    IAN: Yes...

    IAN: ...and a leash...

    BOBBI: ...and a man's arm extended out up to here holding on to the leash and pushing a black glove in her face to sniff it. You don't find that offensive, you don't find that sexist?

    IAN: No I don't, this is 1982, BOBBI, come on.

    BOBBI: That's right it's 1982 get out of the 60's we don't have this mentality any more.
