In the classic rock world, the album cover was often an impressive piece of art. The Sgt. Pepper's cover was a masterpiece that is still looked at and studied by fans today. And who can forget the Sticky Fingers album cover with its interactive component? Sadly, CD art is too small to be truly eye catching and has become an overlooked part of new albums. The world may never have the giant, framable art of album covers from the classic rock era, but there may be something just as interesting out there for those who crave them.
Recreating famous pictures, videos and movies with Legos is a form of art that seems here to stay for awhile. Take a look at this site. If you can get past the first couple of album covers, you'll find a lot of very interesting Lego art made to recreate famous album covers from the past, including many Beatles covers.
There are other ways to hold onto the great covers of the past as well. Other fans choose to celebrate their favorite album covers with t-shirts that commemorate them or with purses printed with their images. Album covers may never occupy the same place in our culture that they once did, but the ones from the past are still here to be celebrated.
Did you forget which album this song came from? Of course you didn't! It's Please Please Me.
