Jacket Madness

Album art from the 1960s to the 90s
Record covers are a sign of our life and times. Like the music on the discs, they address such issues as love, life, death, fashion, and rebellion. For music fans the covers are the expression of a period, of a particular time in their lives. Many are works of art and have become as famous as the music they stand for—Andy Warhol's covers, for example, including the banana he designed for The Velvet Underground.
This edition of Record Covers presents a selection of the best rock album covers of the 60s to 90s from music archivist, disc jockey, journalist, and former record-publicity executive Michael Ochs’s enormous private collection. Both a trip down memory lane and a study in the evolution of cover art, this is a sweeping look at an underappreciated art form.
The author

Michael Ochs developed an addiction to rock and roll in the early fifties. To feed his habit, Ochs headed the publicity departments of Columbia, Shelter, and ABC Records in the 60s and 70s. He has also been a disc jockey, taught a rock-history course for UCLA and written for such magazines as Rock, Melody Maker, Cashbox, and Crawdaddy. Michael Ochs established the Michael Ochs Archives in the mid-70s. The archives currently house millions of photographs and over 100,000 albums and singles.

I love just leaving through this one, but it’s also a great book to leave on a side table for guests to pick up. They’ll go through it and it’ll end up sparking all sorts of conversations about their favorite music.

John, October 27, 2021
This is a wonderful book, well researched and presented.
It brought back so many memories from the 1960s onwards.
There are records that I purchased and many others that I wanted to but unfortunately couldn’t, due to lack of funds at the time.
