Brainticket - Cottonwoodhill (1971)
Brainticket aim to expand our minds, show us what it's really like to drop some acid and take a journey into the center of your mind. If this album cover is any indication, the experience is rather ugly. The young woman screams, shouting "OH GOD THESE COLORS ARE MAKING ME WANT TO RETCH" as she sees and feels sensations not unlike being flushed down a toilet. Meanwhile, an unidentified white mass on the right side is knocking on the gold divider. "Excuse me, could you tone down the screaming a bit? I'm trying to sleep. Also you accidentally left a few pieces of your brain on the couch when you were over last night. You really need to get that thing covered up."
