COVER STORY VOLUME 2 OD OBSCURE AND OUTR

Author: Wax Poetics
$45.00(AUD)  inc GST
Description
A series vividly exploring an element of music culture that has withered with the advent of MP3s and digital downloading. Vinyl records tell their stories visually as they do aurally, and the record cover - eye candy for the music lover - speaks a language rooted in the environment and era of the music itself. This volume focuses specifically on the strange and bizarre products of music's most eclectic and eccentric figures, whose visions were so absurd and grandiose they often extended beyond the boundaries of the recording and onto the covers themselves.
Reviews
"[Wax Poetics] is to publishing what Soul Jazz is to the crate-digging community--not just a distiller of the finest lost sounds in funk, reggae, and jazz but a griot-like teller of their histories."
