This week’s special post is the second “episode” of a series that goes through the best album covers of music history of the last 50 years. This time we’re going back in the 70s. A common aphorism about this decade says “If you remember the 70s, you weren’t really there”. And everybody can imagine the meaning. After The Beatles break-up in 1970, other music gods took their supremacy in the international scene, such as The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd & Led Zeppelin that contributed to make the 70s one of the best music decades ever. I have to admit that the choice has been influenced also by the mightiness of the album (like the case of “London Calling” for example), but even if someone isn’t so “graphically elaborated”, it still has a place in history so it deserves to be in this collection. Enjoy!
