    Except the Miles Davis album is from 1972 so it's not showing 60's fashions.
    The Supremes album is from very late 1969 so also barely representive of 60's fashion.

    I guess you're obsessed with an alternative 60's to the real real 60's

    No matter. Those covers express the fashions of the '60's even if they came out slightly after. I didn't say the album covers had to be released in the 60's, just the fashions. And the fashions on those covers certainly were.

    "In yellow shoes I get the blues
    Though I walk the streets with my plastic feet
    With my blue velvet trousers, make me feel pink
    There's a kind of stink about blue velvet trousers
    In my paisley shirt I look a jerk
    And my turquoise waistcoat is quite out of sight
    But oh oh my haircut looks so bad
    Vegetable man, where are you?" etc.

    I've had no luck posting pictures here, but the US cover of Traffic, Dear Mr. Fantasy. Also, the cover of the Stones UK Big Hits, High Tide and Green Grass.
