Cover art

Recommended Posts

I guess cover art was more important back in the days, when downloads and CD's didn't exists. But still, I'm sure all of you have opinions of cover art and cover art that you like or don't like.

Personally I love the old jazz label's, Blue Note's and Verve's, cover art.

I agree that Black Sabbaths debut has great cover art. It definitaly fit to the music.

In Rock's cover art isn't as good as it could've been, IMHO, but it sure is a great idea.

Yeah yeah you all get I love the Black Keys, but really I've always loved this cover art:

All of their albums' cover art does appeal to me in some way though. That one just sticks out. Love it.

This cover needs no explanation.

And neither does this one.

^Two of the most influential covers in music history...and my two favorites. (Cliche, Iknow, but...)

I'm with you on the old jazz covers Swede....I love the portrait's mixed with whatever embellishments..but I like simple and defined too....the posture, the feeling I get from Miles Davis is unparalleled.....it's just him...but this is one of my favorites....

I forgot about this one. This was my introduction to Hawkwind over twenty years ago. I'd never heard their music and bought this because I liked the cover.

I just discovered Hawkwind about 6 months ago. Good stuff.
