Album Covered

Photo update! Hey guys, check out readers' contributions at the end of this blog entry. Show us your vinyls and we'll tell you who you are! (i.e. Music lovers are beautiful people!:)

Claro of our Banggaan art group sent us an email showing various photographs of people cleverly holding cover albums of their favourite old, vinyl records. The idea tho' old as the records themselves, was fun; and if you still have them unsold at eBay, why not ask a friend to take snapshots of you cleverly holding those treasured albums?

Here are some old ones pulled out from my baul! (top image) I was hamming it up with joy when my partner agreed to take photos below.

Miles Davis, Kind of Blue, CBS 1962

Bob Marley and the Wailers, Catch A Fire, 1973 Island Records

Santana, Santana's Greatest Hits, 1974 CBS

Sly Dunbar, Simple Sly Man, 1974 Virgin Records

John Lennon & Plastic Ono Band, Imagine, 1971 Ono Music

Okay, have fun. Send me those album photos (not photo albums:) all right guys?


Here's from Dennis M. of OzPinoyRock yahoogroup. Thanks bud, keep rockin'!

Now here's from Banggaan artist Rod Samonte of Hollywood, California.He took all day shooting these photos. Thanks Rod.

Fleetwood Mac

Barry Manilow, One Voice

Ringo Starr, Rotogravure

Rolling Stones, Sticky Fingers

The Beatles

Pilita rocks and contorts!:) She was front act of The Beatles' Manila concert at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in 1966.


Now here's from Claro Cortes IV whose email lit the fire for this album cover fad. I think the idea has a sense of a Magritte painting (e.g. top images). The illusion is unpretentious yet intriguing.

These covers (below) are cd's (photos by Claro's kid). Nevertheless we'll take exception for they are versions of the original vinyl albums. Thanks guys!

Chico Hamilton, The Dealer

Bob Marley, Legend

Bob Dylan, Tell Tale Signs

Bob Dylan, Completely Unplugged
