Great Performances: Classical cds designed to look like newspapers
Here is another series of classical cd covers. This set created to emulate the front cover of a newspaper. I remember the first time I saw one of these cds I was compelled to pick it up and find out what it was all about. And where most classical cds seem to feature pastoral scenes, here is something that is completely unique, at least of its genre: Jethro Tull’s Thick as a Brick comes to mind.
But how does the metaphor work now? In my view it probably is more effective than it was originally since the symbolism of a newspaper is itself becoming an anachronism.
