I just got Dudley Perkins' Holy Smokes in the mail. I haven't listened to it yet, nor have I heard any of his previous work, but check out this cover:

(Make sure you click on it to experience it in its full glory.) His wife, Georgia Anne Muldrow, is putting out an album of her own, Umsindo, on the same day (7/14), and the cover art for that one is pretty awesome, too...

It's like they're the Lee Perry and Alice Coltrane of neo-soul, or something. This is the first time in a while that an R&B album cover has genuinely sold me on listening to the music.
