Big Star – Radio City album art
4 Comments on “Big Star – Radio City album art”
The liner notes of the Keep An Eye On the Sky box set (2009), which gathers all of Big Star’s three studio albums as well as many outtakes and previously unreleased recordings, credit one Carol Manning for the art direction and the design of Radio City. Lead singer and songwriter Alex Chilton is also credited for “Cover Creative Direction” (whatever that means).
Thank you, Stéphane! I updated my entry to credit Carol Manning.
You’re welcome. Radio City is a fantastic album from start to finish.
The front cover features William Eggleston’s “most famous photograph, entitled Greenwood, Mississippi, 1973, but always referred to as The Red Ceiling”.
