I was involved in a terrific book called Covered a few years ago, which looked at several hundred album and CD sleeves which either lifted, borrowed or paid homage to older classic cover art. Amazingly a band called The Weight have produced a great video for their new album which does a similar sort of thing, but with animation. The whole video is just a seamless montage of classic album sleeves but adapted to include the group or individual musicians. It would take someone with more time than I have to spot them all, but it would make a great party game. Everyone from Dylan to Deep Purple! The track itself? Well, see what you think. The video lasts just under three minutes, so give it a go. My thanks to Tim Summers for the heads up.
If you want to read more about the Covered book, nip over to the publisher’s website, it’s still in print.
