If I had to pick a cover that screamed mid-60s gestalt (always wanted to use that word on the internet), then this Chambers Brothers album cover would certainly be in the running.  For some reason the flower cover has always reminded me of that infamous Lyndon B. Johnson "daisy girl" commercial.  If you've never seen it, check out the attached YouTube link:

Add in the '60s font (which is almost impossible to read) and you've got a classic timepiece cover.
