Reseña del editor
Rock on. From Elvis to Nirvana: the most important record covers in rock history. Album art is indelibly linked to our collective musical memories; when you think of your favorite albums, you picture the covers. Many photographers, illustrators, and art directors have become celebrities from their album artworks-the best examples of which will go down in history as permanent fixtures in popular culture. Paying tribute to this art form, Rock Covers brings you a compilation that includes 600 remarkable covers, from legendary to rare record releases. Artists as varied as Elvis Presley, The Beatles, The Sex Pistols, Pink Floyd, The Cure, Iron Maiden, and Sonic Youth are all gathered together here in celebration of the covers that defined their albums. Each cover is accompanied by a fact sheet listing the art director, photographer or illustrator, year, label, and more. Two hundred seminal records that marked turning points for a band, an artist, or the music genre, are highlighted with short descriptions. Five professionals who made and shaped the history of rock share insider information in featured interviews while 10 leading rock collectors seal the deal with top-10 favorite records.

E.g., on pages 124-125 we have: "Crass," "Stations of the Crass," with explanatory text; "Cream," "Disraeli Gears," with explanatory text; and "Creedence Clearwater Revival," "Green River," with no text at all, just the "artist" etc, which IMO is one of the most beautiful and iconic album covers you will ever find. (Long live CCR, one of the best bands ever from the Bay Area). Most pages have three album covers, with only one with text. So the information in this huge book on the music artists and art artists is skimpy (at least compared to "100 Best Album Covers.")
The best book I have found for information is "100 Best Album Covers" (1999) by Storm Thorgerson & Aubrey Powell. (See my review of same).
"1000 Record Covers," (2001) by Michael Ochs, is really just about that, with artist, label, year, design and photo, with little, if any text. But you will find some album covers here that you will not find anywhere else, especially from the 1950's. (which is also published by Taschen).
"A Brief History of Album Covers," (2008), if OK, but flawed. It has a lot of information on the music artist but only some entries have information on the art artist at all. E.g. pages 72-73 "Grateful Dead's" "Aoxomoxoa" L.P. cover from 1969, which had no information at all on the artist Rick Griffin. (See page 22 of "100 Best Album Covers" for this information.)
Honestly, I would buy "100 Album Covers" first, and the any of the other three album cover books.
For sheer size and beauty you can not beat "Rock Covers," (2014), but the information on the artists included in this book is a little light.
