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.

Author Biography - The Wax Poetics Team

First published in December 2001, Brooklyn-born "Wax Poetics" hit newsstands with a new vision for music journalism, creating a bridge between the past and present of hip-hop, jazz, funk, soul, reggae, disco, and Latin music. Although originally created for a concentrated market of music aficionados, the magazine's audience has grown exponentially, making musical anthropologists out of average music listeners and spawning a soul renaissance, complete with comeback tours and sophomore efforts. Wax Poetics illuminates the dark corners of our sonic past, while also striving to give new and innovative artists the credit they truly deserve.
