amazing tumblr that spots the original pictures from classic album covers




it's mind blowing


some of them are a bit a boomer since i've always though the art/design was made for it

Might wanna get rid of that forwardslash and space at the end of the hyperlink, it's coming up with a 'not found' page, nice post though!

That's a 23 year old hipster's record collection right there.

 

Also, who would have believed that the Rubber Soul cover was based on a photo of the Beatles?

 

OK, I'll drop the cynicism for a while.

yeah "the next day" is one of my most favourite album covers in the "conceptually but not aesthetically" category

I like how closely the albums that are featured mirror my music taste

Never knew the Clash album at http://artofalbumcovers.tumblr.com/page/97 was styled after Elvis Presley's first album http://artofalbumcovers.tumblr.com/post/91594429650/elvis-presley-self-titled-1956-from-a

 

Pity about the tumblr format, this is one where it's be great to see the original and album art side by side instead of having to scroll every time. But I spent a good hour looking through over 100 of these, awesome find Idore.

Cool tumblr- thanks!

 

Ze tumblr reminded me that Grace Jones used to look incredible and iconic and IDM as fuck. Also reminded me that I listened to a Grace Jones album many times, and it felt like parody of singing and music-- OR, it was ultra high level IDM shit.

 

Being that the universe actually goes both ways, it's nice to think that some of these people and places exist, because they were based on album covers.

I used to find the real Windowlicker model more freaky to look at, probably because I got so used to seeing Richard's head on her body.
