It's all about the music


LP artwork of the 1970s. A golden age of graphic design in music.

Well not for John Martyn it wasn't, whose record company commissioned a consistent run of absolute shockers.
 
 
 Bless the Weather (1971).                                                         
                                                                Sunday's Child (1975).

Bless the Weather and Sunday's Child are just plain lazy. "Stick his head in the middle, with the name at the top and the title below. Next!"
