A few years ago (January 2008), we featured the great Jazz and Classical album cover artist, some call the "Original Album Cover Artist," Alex Steinweiss. In 1938, as a 23-year old, Steinweiss transformed the music industry that had previously sold records in blain brown paper sleeves. Steinweiss made the music come alive with coinciding artwork that reflected the music and mood that was found on vinyl. Some classic Steinweiss work after ther jump  . . .
