SKYHOOKS CALLING [COVERART #57]

 The debut album by Australian pop-rockers Skyhooks was released on 28th October 1974.

Artwork was by Neils Hutchinson.

Read a memoir and album reflection here (previous post).

When the first of several re-unions eventuated in the early 80s the band toured and – surprise surprise – released an album Live in the 80s in 1983.  What actually was surprising – and delightful – was the homage to the cover art of their first album…

A photo recreating a painting is rather cool, I think.

I enjoy the attention to detail (especially Red wearing red trousers).

Just a shame the budget didn’t run to painting the aeroplane.
