Last month we gave away 2 copies of Matthew Chojnacki’s new book Put The Needle On The Record featuring record sleeve’s from the 1980’s. The book features 2 Eurythmics sleeves, see below for related posts.
Here’s a couple of reviews of the book:
“1980s single cover art was cheeky, sexy, punchy, and glam. Matthew Chojnacki vividly chronicles the best of the bunch, illuminating the way music looked via comments from rock stars and art directors with a strong eye for the visual.” – Michael Musto, The Village Voice
“Put the Needle on the Record proves that the ’80s wasn’t the decade that taste forgot – but rather the era where single cover artwork came of age and caught up with its LP predecessor…before CDs changed the landscape for good.” – Jason Draper, Record Collector Magazine
“The 1980s. The spin point of a time where the collision of art, culture, class, nation, and government was fueled by the steroids of technology. Put the Needle on the Record is a great read on an era that many consider the new ’60s.” – Chuck D, Public Enemy
Eurythmics are featured briefly in this fantastic new animated video produced to produce the book.
