Kraftwerk - Tour de France Soundtracks
I think this counts as an illustrated sleeve. I mean Kraftwerk are up there with Bowie as being one of the coolest. I think when you look at Kraftwerk they are the perfect example of a band that always retain their mystique and really live by the whole world they've projected. Every record of theirs really draws you into it. On top of that, they're one of the world's best live bands. I've seen them maybe three times and their sound quality was unbelievable, they just sounded so good. I got really into running at one point and I'd always listen to Tour de France. I guess it was kind of made for that.
