There are so many cool Savoy Brown covers I have to admit I'm a little surprised this was the first one to make the list.  That probably has something to do with the fact this is the first Savoy Brown album I've listed to since I started the blog ...   So, the photo effects are a little dated - remember this album came out in 1975; decades prior to Photoshop.  Regardless, it's the concept that counts and equating Kim Simmonds blistering guitar runs with flames coming out of his fingers was a near perfect concept.    C'mon, you know you love this one as well.
