    Interactive album art

    You young fucks don’t know the joy of vinyl.

    Radio just played a Led Zeppelin song from in through the out door.

    That album cover (Or maybe the sleeve, I forget) was trippy. If you got it wet colors would appear
    So you could paint your own custom sleeve.

    Rolling Stones sticky fingers had a zipper.

    The velvet underground was before my time. But I did own a vinyl copy with the fluorescent banana underneath.

    Good memories.

    Just listened to in through the out door last night on vinyl. My cover is only partially colored in. Maybe I'll do the rest of it some day.

    LED ZEPPELIN - PHYSICAL GRAFFITI
    The album cover was like an advent calendar with die cut windows. When you slide the inner sleeves out, different images appear in the wWindows.


    ROLLING STONES - THEIR SATANIC MAJESTIES REQUEST
    The original cover was a 3-D "holographic" image that changed when you moved the album up, down, side to side.


    A TRIBE CALLED QUEST - BEATS, RYHMES, AND LIFE
    This 1996 album was released with a 3-D cover using the same "holographic" technology the Stones used back in 1967

    CHEECH AND CHONG - BIG BAMBU
    Designed to look like a pack of rolling papers, the album actually contained a giant rolling paper so you could roll a mondo huge joint while you listened to the record.

    DJ Q-BERT took it to a whole other level:

    Nice dookey.

    My physical graffiti didn’t have the original windows. That would be cool.

    Big bambu. Yep. But ironically when I bought that album I had no idea what that wrapper was for. Lol.

    To be fair, I only own Physical Graffiti, Their Satanic Majesties Request, and Beats, Rhymes, and Life.
    Friends have told me about the Cheech and Chong album and I Googled the Q-Bert one.


    FWIW, Zeppelin were big on the "interactive" covers; III was based on a volvelle...

    Plus, a deep dive on the subject yielded that Peter Corriston, the designer/artist responsible for the Physical Graffiti cover also did The Rolling Stones' Some Girls, which had a similar die-cut set-up.

    I just remembered that I own Jethro Tull's Thick As A Brick, which originally came wrapped in a newspaper.

    Plus their album Stand Up had a pop up illustration of the band when you opened the gatefold

    Yeah, zep III has the rotating pinwheel thing. I have a recent-ish dillinger escape plan album from a few years ago that has the same sort of thing.

    Damn, I just spiraled down a rabbit hole on this subject...

    Check out this cool CD packaging:

    Led zeppelin 3 had a round spinner. I still have it.

    Does a 1972 hologram cover count?

    It is so nice to see that The 'Rona has not hindered the bots and phishers...

    But, back on topic:

    A buddy of mine is playing that 10 Albums In 10 Days game on FB. One of the albums he listed was Chomp, from Pylon. He mentioned that the picture he included was not his actual album and that afficiandos would know why.
    I had to Google search, not being an afficiando, and learned via Discogs that the original pressing came "With die-cut serrated-cut "chomp" on edge of sleeve. Initial copies came with a postcard featuring same T-Rex photo, obtained by the band at the Dinosaur Natural History Museum in Utah and subsequently inserted in the sleeves."
    If you sent the postcard, that makes it an interactive album...

    Bob Marley Catch A Fire had a hinged flip top, and looked like a metal cigarette lighter.

    Ironically, sucked for cleaning weed

    The Return of the Durutti Column - in sandpaper sleeve so it messed up what was stored adjacent.

    PiL Metal Box, three 45 rpm records in a film canister, was a nice package.

    Jefferson Airplane's Long John Silver had a cover that would fold up into a cigar box, the bottom of the box was lined with a picture of some cheap weed. I never folded mine

    ^That is freaking cool...I also feel out-of-the-loop per se, as I am wholly unfamiliar with that JA album
