Sydney's one and only Graz took the painstaking task of selecting his all time record sleeves from his jumbo collection and by doing so, raising the Crate Minds stakes. Enjoy.
Lotterboys - Blazer (2005)
"Such a good cover, wouldn't mind doing that to a few people.
Electric Light Orchestra - Discovery (1979)
"Great tracks, worthy album. This album has the all time classic "Last Train To London".
Walter Carlos - Switched-On Bach (1968)
"I was digging through a Vintage HiFi shop in Newtown with Hoodrat and he pulled this one out and said "gotta have this, dude". I looked at the cover and bought it straight away. It's very kooky. Electronic versions of famous classical music."
Playgroup - Make it Happen (2000)
"Sick Tune. Classic from back in the Bang Gang days. Looks like she's giving the cunnilingus. Sexe."
Small Time Cuts - It Takes a Muscle (2010)
"Probably my favourite cover of all time and the tune inside is a Ripper! Such a good last song of the night. If you find a copy of this record buy it - only 300 pressed."
New Musik - Warp (1982)
"A must have. This cover is so good, because the record is called 'Warp', the writing is warped and when you run your hand over the sleeve - it's actually warped! If they meant to do that, it's cool. Or this copy got left out in the rain and I am a lucky customer."
Talking Heads - Little Creatures (1985)
"Amazing Album. Great Cover. Includes the tracks "Road to Nowhere", "And She Was", and "Stay Up Late".
Pilooski - AAA (2010)
"Cool record. Great cover. This is hopefully what I will look like when I'm older.
Orlando Riva Sound - Body to Body Boogie (1979)
"Such a cool group and this is a great release. I bought it for one of my favourite disco tracks, "Moon Boots". It's so good it should be a ring tone."
