  About this site

This is a fan site devoted to Rock'n'Roll music and the art of the album cover.

Compilations, Best Ofs and Christmas albums are not included. No disco, soul, rap, reggae, novelty or techno makes it in here.

Not all the top acts and the top records appear here. This will be the only mention of such luminaries as The Bee Gees (other than the landmark Saturday Night Fever soundtrack), Aretha Franklin, the Chipmunks, the Royal Guardsman, Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley, Mariah Carey, Brittney Spears, Whitney Houston, eminem, Fifty Cent and the rest of the divas and rap stars.

My taste is obviously a product of my age. I was born in 1954 and entered puberty during the Summer of Love when the whole world changed. My first album was Electric Ladyland, so my biases are outfront. I love the BeachBoys-GirlGroups-Beatles-psychedelic era. Whatthehell, I grew up in it! I appreciate melody and have only entered some recent albums to fill up gobs of empty space. If rock isn't dead, it's gasping for air.
