Good thread idea Jesse,

I like DQ too, it has that timeless setting and appearance; it could be 1802 there, just as easily as 2002... but,

I've always been fascinated by the cover art of COTS, what appears to be a photo re-touched to look like a painting; the woman in the background; the dark grainy turquoise of the painting appearance... Its very atmospheric, just as DQ. I'll go with COTS.

Just a thought; If I am not mistaken, there is a rainbarrel of staves-and-rings type - your standard barrel, in both DQ's and I believe in IYCRMM's cover. Thoughts ?

A very good choice in "COTS" ! I did go check my Lightfoot LP's, and you are correct about the rain barrels in "DQ" & "IYCRMM'... Good observation my friend.

My favorite is Don Quixote too.

BTW every time I look at the cover of Summertime Dream, I'm reminded of joveski's friend's comment that Gord looks like a porn star. I have to smile every time I see it.

Mine is probably "East Of Midnight" or "Gord's Gold Vol. 2".
It shows him mature, but not yet starting to show his age.
Gordon told me once that he traveled to New York City to do the photo shoot for
"East Of Midnight".
