When I was a kid this used to really scare the hell out of me. Angus was so scary looking!



This was probably the first scary album art that I remember. To this day I can't explain what the deal is with it!

My Mom was heavy into the anti-Satanic religous fervor in the late 70s for awhile. Black Oak was on that list and my brother had the 8-track, her and her friends talks about Satanic music had me convinced that was the hand of Satan himself.



Same reasons as above. Knights In Service of Satan, you know.

Also the back of the Destroyer cover, see the head of Satan turnt sideways towards the lower right hand corner?

I can't see Satan's head on there.

How old are we talking about here?!
Why am I looking at these covers if I am 6 years old?!
Who the hell can remember back that far?

I have that live Black Oak record. Sure enough on When Electricity Came to Arkansas, if you have a turntable that lallows you to spin the record backward, you can hear Jim Dandy chanting:

Satan, Satan , Satan, he is god, he is god, he is god.

The Blind Faith album cover would probably considered be kiddie porn if released today.

I found Aphrodites Child semi disturbing when I was a youngster.

My son kinda was a bit freaked by the Steely Dan LP , Royal Scam.

I forgot to include this LP cover which also freaked me out, both sides:



Those nasty looking bikers were scary



The green ghost wasn't too pleasant either!

Black Sabbath's first album's cover was plenty eerie, as was the front and back to Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.
By contrast, the covers to Paranoid and Born Again are just ugly.
