I want to say this one, but under closer scrutiny, I'm not sure...

Serves you right, as I got a "Messages have been inserted since you read the thread" warning and had to remove my Safe As Milk. Oddly, SAM was my first picture before removing it, so SAM would have appeared twice in a row, just like Love American Style.

Would this be the earliest example?

Ha ha, crazy. It was kind of strange because I could only find a small, crappy image of the WCPAEB cover but when I hit submit it was suddenly bigger and clearer. Then after I realized it was an x-post and submitted that I saw Alex's x-post of the Beastie Boy cover. I guess Safe As Milk, WCPAEB Vol 2, and Love American Style must be the 3 archetypal fisheye covers of all time.

Vic beat me to the punch with the sleeve of the "Hey Ladies" 12" while I was busy...and unsuccessfully....combing Google for the cover of an MC5 bootleg that featured a fish eye shot.

Ah, turns out it's not a bootleg, but merely a pic. Still....
