Teaser and the Firecat is a great album Sean !!!! :)
I miss the lost art of album covers! I am 99% positive that some (if not all) of the Molly Hatchet albums are Frank Frazetta's artwork.

How about some classic Yes?



indeed, that's why I love a lot of my old jazz I have on cd, they have reproduced the original album art in the packaging so I "kinda" feel like I have the vinyl album in my hands from 1958 or so.
My brother in law just bought and retro stereo (with a turnstyle!), and has been collecting old albums. Sean you are right on the money here: the album cover is a lost art.

Remember how it used to be a completely interactive (pardon the term) experience? The cover... the back cover... the record sleeve and the liner notes... truly, a lost art.
Two Saturdays ago I got to experience the warm sound of vinyl at an older gentleman from my church who has been building his audio/video studio for the last 50 years and I was totally blown away. Not only does Bill have LP's from the 50's,60's,70's and 80's, he has reel to reel tapes from the bands he was in so listening to demos and live concerts was a treat. He has set up his speakers for true quadraphonic sound and listening some of the older jazz with each instrument coming out of the different speakers was pretty wild. I had not heard anything like that in a long time.
Outstanding! It's expecially cool when you look at old jazz music, or some of the great artists that really pushed the use of stereo: Pink Floyd, the Beatles, etc.

Plus those snaps and pops that can only be produced by a needle in a groove give the music special character.
Yeah it was cool I took my cd of Dave Brubeck's Time Out and Bill played the LP so we listened to them back to back and the album was so much warmer, deeper sound. I love my cd's, but I do miss my vinyl collection.
Good call Bob and yes it was Frank for Molly's album art and he also did ...

One of the great fantasy artists of all time! Nobody does barbarians like Frazetta and Vallejo!
+1 for good music. :^)
Indeed good music Jarrett :)
I dig the last one.
