I found this rock by some train tracks today. The rock could be from anywhere since the rock beds for the tracks are often laid with rocks shipped in from everywhere. A Google search hasn't been much help yet. Anyone?
I'm a huge fan of science fiction book cover art (especially the 50s through the 80s) and I like to use ideas from them to make posters for my band.

Classic Rock Filter: I'm looking for the name of a rock LP with a cover design that features a screaming face, essentially purple-hued. I believe it's either Deep Purple or Humble Pie, but Google is failing me ... [more inside]
