2 thoughts on “The Art of the Album Cover”

  1. One day, a long, long time ago . . .
    A friend of mine proudly showed me the back of his denim jean jacket.
    He had painted a small Led Zeppelin mural with bright shades of pastel in acrylic paint. And I thought . . . hmm, not bad, but I bet I could do better. So, I bought some paint/brushes and started my own jacket (Gentle Giant I). I wore it around the neighborhood and people starting asking me to paint there jackets as well. I stuck to the more simplistic album covers (my early talent had its limits). But there was so much to chose from. It was a great way to make a little cash and the hours were good!
    [quote comment=”4356″]I once had a couple of coffee table volumes of The Best Album Art of the 60s, 70s, and 80s [/quote]
    I had the same book (mysteriously dasappeared since), I recall the volume I had included Waters’ Pros/Cons of Hitchhiking and Country Life by Roxy Music. Two of my favorite Anal bum covers.
