Best Album Covers
July 18, 2008. Posted by Angelika Beener.
OK, I just had this crazy idea. I'm sure it's not a first, but I never thought about doing this until today. I was thinking to paint a mural on a wall in my apartment using my favorite album cover as inspiration. But I have too many favorite covers, which then got me to thinking about all the dope album covers there are - not just in jazz, but in all of music. So I thought I'd share just a slight few of my favorite album covers of all time - in no particular order. If you have some favorites, share them with me. I'd love to know what your mural would look like.
