Record (First Day) Cover of the Week

January 9, 2010

Britain’s Royal Mail has issued a series of 10 stamps of iconic record covers by British artists. Included are Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells, The Rolling Stones’ Let It Bleed, Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust, and Led Zeppelin IV, among others.

According to this BBC article, the selection criterion was the artwork and not necessarily the music on the album. Seems odd to me that no Beatles covers were selected – I’d opt for Revolver (or maybe the white album – how cheeky would that be?).

And somehow this one was also missed.
