Mighty Martin Popoff, the uncontested champ of rock and roll reviews, has teamed up with iconic album cover artist IOANNIS and created an amazing hardcover book that celebrates the best of the best album cover artwork from 1965 to 1990.

The hardcover book is candy to the eyes of those who stood in line buying these albums in days past. Now, presented in big bold colors with snippets of expertise by Popoff these iconic covers jump off the page.

Bands covered include Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, and Cream to Kiss, Metallica, Nirvana, and Alice in Chains just to name a few. There are wayyyy to many great bands and covers to list here. The best thing to do is to buy the book and check it out for you self.

The bottom line with this big book is that these two rock and roll luminaries did this one up right.
