Music Notes ~ vinyl LP cover graphics

   ~      

I will have to fess up to what people may call idiotic, silly, stupid or even a crime! Many of my record purchases over the years was influenced by the graphics of the cover, such as the album by Mina, Salomé, on the right. As I said in the article I wrote about this album (link below), “How could you pass up a cover like this?”     .   
 
Although I bought albums unknown or unheard just from the information (performers, style, etc.) on the back of the album cover (one of the reasons I will always love a vinyl LP as opposed to a  CD), it was the graphics of some of them that snagged me.     
Some of those albums have been featured on the Viewfinder; there will be many more to come.
