Album Covers


Album covers have been around since the late late 1940's when they began replacing the plain printed paper jackets that were on 78 rpm records. The cover art became an important part of the whole record album experience.  There have been some famous artists that have designed covers such as Andy Warhol and Robert Crumb. Famous photographers have also made legendary covers with Annie Leibovitz, Richard Avedon and Robert Mapplethorpe to name a few. Album covers can be sexy, beautiful, artistic, weird, strange, nostalgic and provocative. I have a Jackie Gleason album called "Lonesome Echo" hanging in my living room that has a Salvatore Dali painting made especially for that record.
