If I had to pick an album that grabbed my attention purely on the design colors, then it would have to be this 1967 release by Les Sinners.  Hard to believe, but the actual colors are even more vibrant than the image captures - the cover is literally eyeball searing intense.   Most of the music is decent pop-garage in nature; including an odd French version cover of 'Penny Lane'.  That said the anonymous cover more than compensates for whatever musical limitations the album had.  Wonder what this baby looks like under black light, or under the influence of various lysergic substances ?
