Remain in light

One of the best albums of all time with one of the most striking covers as well: the 1980 album Remain in light by the Talking Heads (we brought this album to a vinyl evening at the local record store this week). The cover image of the distorted faces of the band members is one of the first computer-designed record jackets in the history of music, at a time when computers were still huge and slow (full story in this very informative Wikipedia entry).
