Even though it’s been preached that we should not judge a book by its cover, people will still unapologetically judge a book by its cover!
It’s normal human behavior, and it’s not changing anytime soon. Same goes for music albums.
Seeing is actually part of the hearing, and cover album art tends to create an interest and a little magic. It paints a vivid picture that goes with the music it represents.
Don’t be mistaken to think that the current world of digital music has somehow placed traditional music covers on its last days. Album covers still remain as important as ever.
If you are to walk into a music store and get a few music records, you are more likely to pull out those that are familiar to you and the ones that are appealing because artwork carries the day and defines how people interact with that particular music album.
The two authors Robbie Busch and Jonathan Kirby with Julius Wildermann as the editor, came up with this compilation titled Rock Covers.
Perfect gift for a music lover in your life!
