Unique in its scope and choice 1000 Record Covers, in a new flexi-cover format, illustrates how Rock is not just music but a way of life, an attitude and a style. By definition, rock music is for the moment; today's hit is tomorrow's oldie, probably destined for oblivion. The same applies to album covers. Designed by innovative artists and photographers, they hit the popular nerve of the moment and a good cover can help underwrite an album's success. 1000 Record Covers collect the most important covers of the Rock Era, from Megahits to obscure collectors' items: a history of almost half a century's music in miniature.

A fascinating survey of cover art (TASCHEN's 25th anniversary special edition) Record covers are a sign of our life and times. Like the music on the discs, they address such issues as love, life, death, fashion, and rebellion. For music fans the covers are the expression of a period, of a particular time in their lives. Many are works of art and have become as famous as the music they stand for - Andy Warhol's covers, for example, including the banana he designed for The Velvet Underground. This special edition of Record Covers presents a selection of the best 60s to 90s rock album covers from music archivist, disc jockey, journalist, and ex-record publicity executive Michael Ochs's enormous private collection. Both a trip down memory lane and a study in the evolution of cover art, this is a sweeping look at an under-appreciated art form.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Nicht ident mit früheren Ausgaben 31. Oktober 2007
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Über kann man die Search Inside Funktion auch für "1000 Record Covers" nutzen - allerdings wird man auf die frühere Hardcover Ausgabe verwiesen. Das war mir nicht bewußt. Erst als meine Bestellung dieser neuen Jubiläumsausgabe in meinen Händen war, habe ich feststellen müssen, dass zahlreiche Interpreten, die im Hardcover-Index gelistet waren, in dieser Ausgabe fehlen: so fehlt z. B. der gesamte Bereich der 1950s (!). Gerade diese Cover sind aber selten und für Nostalgie-Freunde wie mich sehenswert.
Wen das aber weniger stört: es gibt Cover aus dem breiten Spektrum der Pop- und Rockmusik ab 1960. Da es sich um ein Taschenbuch handelt, braucht man aber eigentlich ein Vergrößerungsglas, um die Details der Cover zu betrachten. Es sind weitgehend zwei Cover pro Seite geboten. Die Cover sind daher kleiner als CD-Cover im Original. Aus meiner Sicht geht hier viel vom eigentlichen Reiz der Motive verloren. Einzig der günstige Preis und die große Anzahl der Abbildungen lassen das Buch kaufenswert erscheinen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great for remembering! 22. September 2003
Von H. Row - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I don't know if there was a full size "coffee table edition of 1000 Record Covers produced. This is an undersized book but the reproduction of the album covers will bring back the excitement and creativity of each of the eras - 1950's, 60's,70's, 80's and 1990's.
The commentary is left to a minimum, without more than a few words of interest just every so often.
I guess I want my cake and to eat it too. The small size is easy to read in bed or while relaxing. But a full size (12" X 12") edition would be marvelous.
I spend a lot of hours looking through this intriqueing book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Cover Me 3. Februar 2002
Von M. Elias - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book of "just" album covers is put together so brilliantly, it seems to actually have a plot. As Ochs goes through his collection of covers, (some obscure, some not) they tell the story of Rock and Roll from the 50's, forward. His groupings of related covers accurately describe the many stages, styles, and trends that Rock music has gone through. You can pick it up and browse through it, but it really is better to go page by page. This is a work of love. Ochs (for all his success with his Archives) really gets it.

2.0 von 5 Sternen But...but...but...Vaughan Oliver? 25. Juli 2004
Von M. Lepera - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
As soon as I saw this title, I plonked it onto my amazon wish list, as it combines two of my main passions (music and design). But after flipping through a copy, I had to remove it from my list - maybe if rents plummet and I can afford more space for bookshelves it'll make a reappearance, but until then I'll do without it.

The title - "1000 Record Covers" - at least makes no false claims, e.g. "1000 Great Record Covers", or "1000 Essential Record Covers". However, such a claim is made on the back cover, and I must refute it. Too many of the entries are mediocre, and there are too many masterpieces that are ignored. I would blame this less on the author - all the choices come from his collection, which is by its nature limited - and more on the editors, who should have realized the shortcomings of such a scheme. My personal interest would be in covers from the 70s, 80s, and 90s, and I can't forgive the absence of (for starters) Joy Division, Cocteau Twins, Gang of Four, the Slits, Buzzcocks, the Fall, Wire, the Pixies, Eno, Magazine, the Cramps, the Residents, the Pop Group, Pere Ubu, Avengers, Angry Samoans, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Romeo Void, Monochrome Set, Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV, X-Mal Deutschland, Coil, Chrome, Crass, Delta 5 - all of whom released LPs with compelling cover designs.

Labels such as Z, Dischord, les Disques du Crepescule, Two Tone, Rough Trade, Factory, Postcard, TVT, are virtually or completely ignored, and designers such as Malcolm Garrett (his Duran Duran work doesn't count - not at the expense of "A Different Kind of Tension"), Vaughan Oliver, tomato, Peter Saville (Roxy Music's "Flesh + Blood" gets in, but it's one of Saville's weaker efforts and his name is misspelled!), Barney Bubbles, Neville Brody are similarly slighted.

The book could also use an index of designers.

It may seem like I'm harping on about bands from mainly one genre (punk/new wave/whatever), but the truth of the matter is that much of the really innovative cover design in the last 30 years has come from that area.

To be fair, the book does include covers of LPs by the Dead Kennedys, Clash, XTC, Ramones, Echo & the Bunnymen, Teardrop Explodes, Public Image, Patti Smith, Altered Images (yay!), so some credit is certainly due.

Also happy to see the a Soft Machine record in there.

And this book did make me recognize what a subtle piece of work TheCure's "...happily ever after" is.

I'm writing this review not to slag the book off, but to inform people with similar expectations to what I had that while there is a lot of good material in here, there are gaping holes as well. Again, I think the weakness lies in limiting the choices to one person's record collection instead of directing the author to choose from the entire gamut of record covers available to him.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Cover Up 19. März 2013
Von Philip S. Wolf - Veröffentlicht auf
This book has been around for quite a well now (mine is the black cover 1995 edition) and this smallish book really does contain 1,000 record covers within it's covers. About half of this volume is devoted to the fantastic and trend-setting art of the 1950's and 60's and the remander of the book brings us up to the early 1990's in fine style as the focus is spotlighting just how good these covers are. You will discover many, many original designs that have been copied over and over ever since.

The fifties give you faces and the sixties continue that trend until pop art and drugged-out madness took over in 1966/67 and it went into many different directions and places. Pop, jazz, rock and much more are touched upon and some of this you have seen (Bob Dylan, Cream, Supertramp) and some is only well-known to a small select few like: "Silk Torpedo" the airbrushed masterwork from The Pretty Things released in 1974.

It's great to see that something good came from the "Disco" era of the late seventies as almost all of the covers from that time feature some very pretty (and often coked-out & sleazy) girls that cannot keep their clothes on. Styles come and go and the art is first-class and crystal clear. This book was printed in Italy on good paper stock and is a good feast for the eyes.

These Taschen books went for $30.00 when they were new and if you can find this book at an reasonable price it's a worthy purchase.
Four Stars!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Just so, so : / 5. Januar 2011
Von T. Arwood - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This was portrayed as a coffee table book with high quality images. It is not. It is very small 5.5" x 8", and the images are so small that you cannot fully appreciate the artwork.
Disappointing :(
