Album back cover art ....

216 posts in this topic

This thread is dedicated to art featured on album back covers (so neither "extended" gatefold cover art - means one photography stretched over front and back cover - nor gatefold cover inner photos,inserts etc do qualify). Each posting should also feature the album`s front cover. So let`s start with this one .... :

Johnny Griffin "Fly Mister Fly" (Saxophonograph)      1985  .... my interest in this tread topic rests upon the fact that back cover art can comprise a completely different (compared tp the front cover) information btw point of view - like this priceless "ladies man" Johnny Griffin photography ....

This front & back cover reflected the themes of the two sides of the album.  Front cover/side one:

MI0002402095.jpg?partner=allrovi.com

was all about happy love songs, while the back cover/side two:

was all about sad songs of lost love.

Not to derail an interesting thread, but...

Back cover or front cover, nobody has yet determined, and the mystery remains... from Steve McQueen's album collection... what is the LP at the upper left (not necessarily a match to the Roulette disc that is resting on it):
