LP Cover Art - Framed ?

Recommended Posts

Have some blank lp album frames that have picked up over time in the local bargain type shop

Not as easy making use of them as I first  thought it be, so thinking that may be both worthwhile and entertaining for a pinterest style topic....

How about a  suggestions  for lp covers that would look good framed and up on the wall  topic

 

any ...... ?

I did a colour photocopy of this Art Tatum sleeve a while back and put it in a nice chrome frame which looks the business in my home office. Couldn't believe what a good quality copy you could do on the cheap - colours are a lot brighter than the version I have copied below and it really does look great.

Most Blue Note albums from the 50s and early 60s are well worth framing Warhol did a couple and the monochrome prints of Art Blakey, Lee Morgan & Miles look great in frames some are faithfully reproduced in "The Cover Art of Blue Note"

Talking of label art. There's a bar in Kinsale, Ireland that has the walls and ceiling decorated with album covers, all genres. I can't remember the name of it even though I was there in April just gone. When you've had five pints and start staring up at the ceiling trying to name them all, the room starts spinning. Great idea though

This one does it for me, just look at this face, in the zone or what! If it was on my wall it would remind me what it's all about - uptempo soul!!!!!
