Description de l'ouvrage

8 juin 2010
Cover Story Volume Two: Odd, Obscure, and Outrageous Album Art, the second installment in the Cover Story series from Wax Poetics Books, continues a graphic narration of the vibrant subculture of record collecting through the art of the album cover. This volume focuses specifically on strange and bizarre record covers, selected by the staff of Wax Poetics and major collectors of music’s avant-garde.

The Cover Story series vividly explores an element of music culture that has withered with the advent of MP3s and digital downloading. Vinyl records tell their stories visually as much as they do aurally, and the record cover—eye candy for the music lover—speaks a language rooted in the environment and era of the music itself. Cover Story Volume Two: Odd, Obscure, and Outrageous Album Art celebrates the products of music’s most eclectic and eccentric figures—those whose artistic visions were so absurd and grandiose, they often extended beyond the boundaries of the recording and onto the album covers themselves.

Biographie de l'auteur

First published in December 2001, Brooklyn-born Wax Poetics hit newsstands with a new vision for music journalism, creating a bridge between the past and present of hip-hop, jazz, funk, soul, reggae, disco, and Latin music. Although originally created for a concentrated market of music aficionados, the magazine’s audience has grown exponentially, making musical anthropologists out of average music listeners and spawning a soul renaissance, complete with comeback tours and sophomore efforts. Wax Poetics illuminates the dark corners of our sonic past, while also striving to give new and innovative artists the credit they truly deserve.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Love, love this book! 18 septembre 2010

This book has become an essential item on our coffee table. My husband is an avid LP collector. I know nothing about records. But, we both thought this book was fantastic. Once we got it, we couldn't stop turning the pages. We've left it on our coffee table for the past month. All of our friends who come over start thumbing through and laughing hysterically. They won't put it down until they've gone through the whole thing and picked out their own favorite weird album. It's been the best conversation piece we've ever had. Some of the album album covers are amazing, while others are amazingly...AMAZINGLY...bad. That's the joy of it. Where else can you find art to go with the albums like "My Wife Bought a Taxi," "Yodeling Praises Unto the Lord," "Music to Massage Your Mate By," and "Music for your plants"? I just wish the pages were bigger - I would have loved to see these things the same size as the actual album covers. It would be fun to actually hear some of these albums...I'm curious if the music is as weird and interesting as the cover art. It makes me want to start going to yard sales and picking through record piles to make my own collection. For now, I'll just go back to this book every few days. It always puts a smile on my face.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Could have been much better 16 juin 2010
Par Paul Orsi - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is basically about kitsch LP covers. One would only have to crate dig the now defunct Village Musics gospel bins to find many hilarious finds of this ilk. I really liked the Charles Fort introduction and yes a few great albums like IASOS and a cool PLACEBO and RESIDENTS record. I would have included this Jimmy Reed album with collaged cover; The Chamber Brothers with a cool Mati Klarwein back cover; The Psychedelic Saxophone of Charlie Nothing -especially the back graphic score picturing organic looking musical notations. Not much avant garde weirdness in this book. I don't see any German Prog weirdness or mutant sounds. Italian Horror soundtracks would be cool, but that would perhaps have to be included in a book about CD covers . I have this Jazz LP from the 50's that has a colorful Rorschach test cover. Another weird cover would have been the Glossolalia album that was circa 70's. I expected more from one of the Best music publications in existence.
