Album Cover Hall of Fame Breaking News for January 21st, 2022

Album Cover Hall of Fame Breaking News for January 21st, 2022 –

Posted 1/21/22 by Mike Goldstein,

Some things just can’t wait….

a) The accomplished and acclaimed album cover designer Ioannis is scheduled to participate in a series of two appearances in the Cape Cod area during which he’ll put on display the original art he created for two projects – one for Boston and one for the Allman Brothers Band – and will be sharing the stories behind these images with all those in attendance. Kicking the series off on Friday, January 28th at The Music Room gallery and wine bar, Ioannis will show off the production artwork that was originally intended to be featured on the band’s third album (Third Stage) and which, after the powers that be decided to go with another artist’s imagery (with the album’s progress delayed a number of years due to personnel disputes and a lawsuit by the group’s label), this artwork was lost only to be found later by a fan, so this will be the first time that it’ll be on public display. Also on stage this first night will be the original Boston guitarist Barry Goudreau and his latest band – how’s that for a great tie-in?

The next night’s (Saturday, Jan. 29th) festivities will find the artist presenting the original artwork he’d created back in 1994 for what would be the last studio album of the original Allman Brothers Band, the gold-record-selling, Where It All Begins. That night, the Paul Nelson Band will be performing, and Paul will join Ioannis on stage to talk about their mutual friend, blues rocker Johnny Winter, who Ioannis worked with and Paul managed and performed with.
