Great Album Art IV

by Mark Cartwright

Buying an album used to consist of the thrill of the music, but also reading the liner notes, and occasionally, some incredible cover art.  Cover art is pretty much lost on CDs, and further lost on digital downloads.  So with that in mind, I would like to occasionally post what I feel are some of my favorite album covers of all time.  I only wish I could post them in their original size.  Today, it's one of Elton John's best albums.  Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy was an album cover you could stare at while you listened to both sides of the vinyl.
