Artist: The Byrds
Album: Byrdmaxniax
Label: Columbia
Catalog: KC 30640
Year: 1970
Art Designer: Mary Leonard (masks), Virginia Team and John Berg

Grade: **** stars


This is simply one of the most stunning covers in my record collection (though musically it's a middling Byrds offering).  I can still remember buying the album at a local Penguin Feather record/head shop (I was strictly interested in the records).    The inner sleeves show the process for making the face casts.  Doesn't look like McGuinn and company were having much fun.  Regardless, the glossy, space age result are just too cool !
