PRINCE : 3 GREAT VINYL ALBUMS, 3 WONDERFUL COVERS WITH AN INNOVATIVE DESIGN

 

Prince was not only a musician and composer who has innovated styles and codes of black music, but also an extraordinary interpreter of the modern design trends. This is demonstrated by the covers of those which, for me, are three great vinyl albums of the Eighties: Purple Rain (1984), Around the world in a day (1985), Parade (1986). Yes, sounds, colors and graphic suggestions from the future, created by an artist who has always dared and experimented new ideas, frontiers and challenges.

In the photos: from my vinyl collection, the covers of the three vinyl albums by Prince.

Prince non è stato solo un musicista e compositore che ha innovato stili e codici della black music, ma anche uno straordinario interprete delle tendenze del moderno design. Lo dimostrano le copertine di quelli che, per me, sono tre grandi album degli anni Ottanta: Purple Rain (1984), Around the world in a day (1985), Parade (1986). Yes, sounds, colors and suggestioni grafiche dal futuro, create da un artista che ha sempre osato e sperimentato nuove frontiere. Nelle foto: i tre album in vinile di Prince.
