Been an eternity since a cover art post.
What better reason to dust off some interesting album covers than the current ‘Dune’ series?
So don your hat and sandals, slop on some sunscreen and let’s get sandy!
Gong — Shamal [Virgin 1975]
Helmet — Dead To The World [Ear Music 2016]
Uriah Heep — Head First [Bronze 1983]
Dave Greenslade / Patrick Woodroffe — Pentateuch of the Cosmogony [EMI 1979]
Feature Image: John Williams — Travelling [Cube Records 1978]
Despite loving the jazz-fusion era of Gong (from which Shamal comes) the only one of these albums I’ve written about is the Greenslade/Woodroffe, a rare example of a VC panning. You can read the post here.
Don’t know much of Uriah Heep in the eighties and never heard any Helmet. Am I missing out? And what about the dune-covers? Any reactions?
