Summary, etc.:
With the resurgence of vinyl, album cover art is as important as ever. This visually sumptuous book brings together 275 of the greatest album covers of all time, arranged chronologically, beginning in 1956. A 50-strong panel of judges including designers, musicians, producers, and record company executives made the final selection, and their reasons accompany the photographs. From roc n roll to pop, R&B to jazz, punk, blues, and even folk, the covers include both classics and less well-known works, and every one made an impact, either artistically, stylistically, or culturally. Music fans will enjoy looking back at their favorites and debating the selection. Updated to include album covers up to 2016. Publisher's marketing.
