Album Art Flashback: Disco Inferno by The Trammps

The first thing that you may notice about the cover illustration for the 1976 album Disco Inferno by The Trammps is that it looks more like something from the New Wave era of the 1980s. The green leopard pattern to the neon pink was certainly years ahead of its time.

The album became popular a year after its release, when the title track was included in the hit film Saturday Night Fever. The cover illustration was created by L.A.-based artist Charles White III. White has produced several album covers over a decades-long career. The most noteworthy is the cover for the U.S. release of Gentle Giant’s 1972 album Octopus. The UK version of the album features an illustration by Roger Dean. White’s version is an octopus in a Mason jar.

White also created movie posters for Star Wars and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. His work has appeared in magazines and major advertising campaigns.

Cher reveals artwork for forthcoming album

On the heels of David Bowie’s reveal of the controversial artwork for his forthcoming album, The Next Day, Cher has posted the cover for her newest project. Similar to the Bowie cover by designer Jonathan Barnbrook, the cover for Woman’s World uses recycled artwork from Cher’s 1971 album, Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves, with Cher’s face covered with a white box containing the new album title. Unlike Barnbrook, the designer of the Cher cover wisely chose to remain anonymous.
