And the Famous Flames

- James Brown put out millions of singles. He may be the most prolific artist on vinyl at 45 revolutions. Even if Billy Childish is trying hard to rip the throne from him since the eighties, he certainly won't reach the goal. Sadly most of those records are coverless and when the labels, mainly King and Polydor records printed some, they were uninspired at best. Expect a handful set of singles published in Germany, Italy and Spain during a short gap (1967 - 1970) when a great designer had the privilege to color the sweet of mister Brown. Here a set of those anonymous marvels. One is fake, fruit of affection to provide a cover to the orphans records of my discothèque.























 - Voici quelques fabuleuses pochettes maquettées par je ne sais qui entre les années 1967 et 1970. Elles furent utilisées en Allemagne, Italie et Espagne, pendant que le reste du monde devait se conformer d'un design franchement moins coloré, incendiaire ni à la hauteur du géant qu'il illustrait. Vous reconnaîtrez facilement mon plagiat.


- Yo no he sido. Pero me hubiera gustado diseñar estas coloridas portadas del semidios. De hecho plagié una de estas. Adivina cuál es de pega.
