Space: The Vinyl Frontier
This is the second voyage of the starship Vinyl Connection, its mission to collect space-themed album covers for your extra-terrestrial enjoyment. (The first voyage was here)
Most of these are curated. That is, I’ve used the Connection tractor-beam to draw in covers to make a (hopefully) pleasing and aesthetically interesting constellation of covers.
The final album was difficult to choose. It was a tight finish between Utopia’s Adventures in Utopia and the one below. In the end, I just thought it was unconscionable to have space-themed album covers and omit Sun Ra. Apologies to Todd Rundgren fans throughout the galaxy.
If soundtrack albums were mined more heavily, a third voyage would be feasible, but I think it wiser to park our space-station here for a while.
Final words of encouragement from the spiritual leaders of this quest, Hawkwind:
