El Paso Texas Indie band Mars Volta released Frances the Mute in triple gate fold vinyl in 2005. A slightly altered pose appears on the reverse side. Expect to drop $150+ for a mint copy. You gotta wonder if The Ozark Mountain Daredevils liking to '41 Buicks influenced the band's choice of vehicles?

The album that kicked off my obsession for collecting auto-inspired albums. This Phillips Academy release from 1961 was staged just two blocks from my Andover, MA boyhood home. But it merits honors from its campy sixties setup right down to the clothing store frequented by Miles Davis. Where is that 1958 Aston Martin DB MKIII today?

The Ozark Mountain Daredevils 1975 release dubbed The Car Over the Lake. Southern rock at its finest. From Wikipedia: The Car Over the Lake Album is the third album by the Southern country rock band the Ozark Mountain Daredevils. Recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, it was named after its cheerfully surreal cover illustration, which was borrowed from a poster advertising one of the band's college gigs. This package included a 33⅓ rpm red acetate E.P. record nicknamed The Little Red Record.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. hit sixties TV series cover features a bashed up MGB that has no apparent effect slowing down stars Robert Vaughn and David McCallum. They always catch the girl and Hugo Montenegro's score ties it all together. And what do the initialed letters stand for?
