Course Description

With the introduction of the LP (long-playing) record in 1948, listeners could enjoy music in a more extended and convenient format than ever before. The advent of the LP also offered exciting new opportunities for artists and designers to create album cover artwork. Beginning in the 1950s, many covers were works of art that would contribute iconic images in every music genre. This course will highlight memorable and innovative album covers—and the stories behind them—from the LP era (1955-1985). Get ready to be amazed by an art gallery of rock, jazz, country, and classical albums—even punk, heavy metal, and psychedelia. Whether you’re rediscovering a long-forgotten favorite or looking at a brilliantly conceived album cover for the first time, this course will confirm that music is meant to be seen as well as heard. | Lecture (plus questions); Facilitated discussion; Viewing videos
