1000 Record Covers - Michael Ochs Impressive collection, although I understand Ochs sold his albums after 'writing' the book. It covers about 3 decades and a half, from the 60's to mid 90's. Musically speaking, I wish I had seen more of my fav artists, but anyway, being a rock and roll addict (Ochs, obviously), most of them are in there.

The covers are as they are: original, unoriginal, kitschy, artsy, stunning etc.; a little bit of everything. Sometimes artists themselves got involved in creating them (hurray for Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell or John Lennon; bad, bad choice for Fish, although I love Marillion), other times famous photographers got to work on them - Annie Leibovitz or Storm Thorgerson, and let's not forget the famous cover Andy Warhol created for The Velvet Underground. I wish I could share my preferences, but too many links are involved and making choices is pretty difficult anyway.
