Rock on From Elvis to Nirvana: the most important record covers in rock history Album art is indelibly linked to our collective musical memories; when you think of your favorite albums, you picture the covers. Many photographers, illustrators, and art directors have become celebrities from their album artworks—the best examples of which will go down in history as permanent fixtures in popular culture.
Paying tribute to this art form, Rock Covers brings you a compilation of more than 750 remarkable album covers, from legendary to rare record releases. Artists as varied as Elvis Presley, The Beatles, The Sex Pistols, Pink Floyd, The Cure, Iron Maiden, and Sonic Youth are gathered together in celebration of the cover art that defined their albums and their cult status. Each cover is accompanied by a fact sheet listing the art director, photographer or illustrator, year, label, and more, while nearly 250 records that marked particular turning points for a band, an artist, or the music genre, are highlighted with short descriptions.
This far-reaching catalog of visualized rock is contextualized with insider interviews with five professionals who shaped the history of rock, and by top-10 record lists from ten leading rock collectors. Text in English, French, and German

He is currently an A&R at Chicago's famed archival label the Numero Group, where he researches and compiles albums illuminating lesser-known talents from music history's deepest recesses. His last two years have been spent conceiving Purple Snow: Forecasting the Minneapolis Sound, which details the rise of funk-rock progenitor Prince, surveying his hometown's music scene at the beginning of his journey to world fame.
