This week’s pick is a recent addition to the collection. I have been looking for a copy of Aerosmith’s Greatest Hits (1980 – Columbia Records) record for a little while now and I’ve even passed on a few of them when I found them in stores in Columbus and Cleveland. Aerosmith’s Greatest Hits is a compilation of their best tunes (obviously that’s subjective) from before their early-90’s resurgence. This album is full of goodies and it won’t disappoint even the casual Aerosmith fan like myself.
I got into this album maybe a year or so ago, probably right before I landed my most recent job in Cleveland. I was looking for something that had the hits of Aerosmith’s younger, more wild days after I remembered having a greatest hits collection of theirs in my youth. It was a CD with a blue cover and it was likely the Big Ones compilation. Since I liked that album I decided this would be a good place to start over again and I began streaming this album in its place.
A bit of boredom this morning got me playing with gradients in Illustrator. Color is always something I’m working on getting better at and this just came out to be one of those random sessions where I try something new. I didn’t know what to make but this is what turned up. Kind of looks like an old hard-disk. Weird.
This week I have a real doozy too. Some of my favorite album covers of all time are Judas Priest albums that featured some kind of weird illustration and the selection this week doesn’t let down. Screaming For Vengeance is bright, bold and totally kickass. This is mostly a photo post so hit the jump and bask in this album’s glory!
