That famous Love album - can't remember the name - and Sound Verité by make-up. And there might by another in the same style.

Not so much the cover as the name - Kirsty MacColl's Electric Landlady.

Can't see which one you've posted, unfortunately.

I was sure someone on Discogs would have made a list of Beatles-inspired covers:

Here are 547 (142 of which spoof Sgt. Pepper, from No. 221 to No. 344), courtesy of tusovski
