The digital music revolution has, for the most part, been great for music fans. But even though listening to music online costs less and gives you access to millions and millions of songs you might not otherwise hear, one thing has sadly been lost in the streaming era: Appreciation for incredible album art.
Sure, we still see tiny thumbnail images of singles and LP album covers displayed next to the song streaming on our iPhones, but it’s just not the same as regularly examining album covers in all of their visual glory. In the world of Christian music, where many artists used the cover to blend spiritual metaphors with airbrushed supernatural entities, inspired outfits and creative font selections, there is truly something that modern music fans are missing.
Here, below is a collection of 18 vintage Vintage album covers that feature artists with the craziest hairdos. Most of them look like they’re from the 1960s but there’s at least one from an ’80s Christian hair band. Hopefully we don’t see a resurgence of these hairstyles, but who knows… your move hipsters!
