Total Records, C/O Berlin Gallery, through April 23, 2017

Speaking of nostalgic moods, who doesn’t remember playing a beloved vinyl record, the needle perhaps skipping a groove of a disc played again and again? Digital recordings and Spotify may have made these sensations rarer, but many of us still have a sentimental attachment to vinyl.

The artwork on album covers also drew people into music, and was occasionally designed by prominent artists. Album covers were very much a part of the listening experience, and the exhibition Total Records at theC/O Berlin gallery is showcasing an incredible collection of 20th-century album covers, both legendary and lesser-known.

There are more than 500 album covers on display, dating from the 1960s to 2000. Among the better-known musicians who found a synergy with album designers are the Rolling Stones (with Robert Frank), INXS (with photographer Helmut Newton), Madonna (with Herb Ritts) and Iggy Pop (with artist Jeff Wall).
