This is pretty cool from The Guardian in the UK. There are tons of albums out there that have a well known location on the cover. Can you think of any albums that didn’t make this Google street-view list?
(What’s the Story) Morning Glory by Oasis (Berwick Street in London’s Soho)
Physical Graffiti by Led Zeppelin. (The East Village residential blocks on St Mark’s Place, New York)
Paul’s Boutique by the Beastie Boys. (corner of Ludlow and Rivington on New York’s Lower East Side)
