Missing Album Cover Art

While researching for a previous post, I realized how much I miss album cover art. Opening the Eagles album to find yet another interior cover brought this point to mind.

Eagle Cover and Interior

Today album art is so much less impressive as a CD cover for sheer lack of size,  and less so as an icon to click for a digital download. Soon to come…my favorite 50 album covers.  Suggestions?  I’ll dig through my collection and see what I unearth.

    Totally a lost art! How much more beneficial it would have been to study album covers in art history than the insanities of starving artists who did nothing but paint the same lifeless ugly white chick over and over again in that same lifeless seated pose with hands crossed on her lap…. Ugh!!!

      I’d sign up for that class and hire a U-Haul to bring mine along for closer study.

    I seriously miss album cover art. It was literally part of the package of going out and buying an LP. Some suggestions off the top of my head for album cover art: “Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” (Beatles – of course!) “Wish You Were Here” (Pink Floyd) “Disraeli Gears” (Cream) “American Beauty” (Grateful Dead)

    BTW, thanks for liking my blog post ” I Love Pets – But Maybe Not The Naked Mole Rats…” :-)

    Oh how I miss Music Scene and Tower Records. And I agree, it was part of the package, along with liner notes, info about the artist, photos and printed lyrics.
