Miles Davis Album Art

Having just completed my album collection of Miles Davis in iTunes, I was looking at all the albums in grid view and realized how beautiful every cover of Davis's albums were.

I guess I had never noticed how stunning the art on Miles Davis's albums were. Especially never seeing them all laid out together, it was really overwhelming. Each album seems to be unique and timeless. The art really does a great job of being true to the time of the album and the feeling of the music on the album. I have been leaving iTunes open all day with Miles albums all arranged next to each other just for inspiration. I am going to be digging into more of the history of each album and the individual artist's themselves. Enjoy.

UPDATE: Found the definative collection of Blue Note album art : http://www.gokudo.co.jp/Record/BlueNote4/index.htm



Big thanks to Kai in the comments for these recommendations. Didn't have Big Fun in my collection, it is really well done.

Beautiful Tyler.

My girlfriend just sent my your link to specifically read your EI6 disclaimer. That's effing hilarious and you should be expecting a pulled pork sandwich via 1st class mail any day now. The Davis Covers are pretty rad too.
Cheers,
Roy

You should also check out the cover from Big Fun and Live Evil, which are 2 of the most interesting Miles Davis album covers IMHO.
