As I was reminded by a friend, group cover shots are a dime-a-dozen.  As an example, the band Afterglow released an album a full year before this one that featured a group cover shot.  (I'll have to add that one to the list).  Regardless, while it may not be the first, this one's a true classic, if for no other reason than the sight of a young Neil Young already showing his rebellious nature.  While the rest of the band's looking forward, a slightly disinterested Young is shown looking over his shoulder.
