5 Illustrated Album Covers From 1989

Never judge a book by its cover. But a record though. Admit it: if you walk in a music store and you see a unfamiliar record with an illustrated cover, you take a look at it. Even buy it.

Take The Headhunters’ ‘Survival Of The Fittest’, think Oneness of JuJu’s ‘African Rhythms‘ or imagine George Duke’s ‘The Aura Will Prevail’.

You bought it first for the cover, then learned about the music.

Flash back to rap in 1989, when these illustrated album sleeves ruled the vinyl shop:
