Two Collectors Choose Some Of Their Favorite Album Covers

OK, so I asked two guys I respect a lot, musician and music store owner Josh Burkett and musician/writer/disk jockey Brendon Rule (a.k.a. DJ Andujar of WMUA fame), if they could pull a few albums, from their vast collections, that had cool covers. I got the impression that for Andujar, at first this whole 'cover art thing' was kinda new, but that now he was getting into it. He had done some posters and 'zines, and was of course used to flipping through a lot of records due to his activities as a DJ, collector, and seller of vinyl. But the covers never really grabbed him until I asked him to take a second look. Then, after careful consideration, he proved to have a great eye for wacky & cool cover art. Josh, on the other hand, is a natural connoisseur of cover art, being visual artist as well as a collector, seller, & of course, maker of music, and there is even one cover here that he made himself (Vermonster) & the really beautiful album he commissioned, with a front & back that have no text but are really colorful and quirky. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this little gallery from their collection. You can visit Josh at his store in Amherst, Mass., Mystery Train Records, and you can check out Andujar's radio show, "clandestino' on WMUA. So, without further ado, here are the covers...
