Predictable: Springsteen catalog
Interesting: London Calling was shot in Manhattan
Pathetic: White album not on list

I also am shocked (SHOCKED) that the White Album cover photo is not geolocated :)

The White Album Cover was shot at the North Pole during a snowstorm.

I've been to that little street where the Ziggy Stardust cover was shot. The phone box is a different style phone box now, and at the end of the street (at the time) was one of those weird "ice bars" that vodka companies throw open now and again, usually around the holidays. Some fan photos here.

That's the same trip where I had my husband-to-be grab a screenshot of the Abbey Road web cam as I trod the fabled crosswalk. Since it was cold and I was wearing an enormous black coat, it looked like London was being invaded by a large upright bear.

At long last, the internet proves useful.

Wow, there's the record shop I used buy records when I was a student on a Little Man Tate CD...

Hey! Know what? That's a pretty cool project!

Very, very cool. I'm already trying to think of some to add.

Really sweet project. Just wish the list was easier on the eyes. Preview thumbnails would also be nice.
