Vinyl Hayride Country Music Album Covers 1947-1989 by Paul Kingsbury. While this is technically a photo coffee table book, its pages and pages include a lot to read. If you like popular - and obscure - country music icons, imagery and songs, this book is worth picking up. It includes Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette and others worthy of inclusion because of their prominence, oddball, comedic or straight-up artistic album cover art. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0811835723, Paperback)

A kaleidoscope of rhinestones, flashy cars, boots, and guitars, Vinyl Hayride proudly exhibits the classic album covers that define country music's look and style. From the cartoon illustrations of the 1940s to the glamour shots of the 1980s, this is a one-of-a-kind collection of more than 250 classic album covers. Author Paul Kingsbury painstakingly unearthed the best from deep in the vaults of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, home to the world's most complete country music record collection. A visual history of the genre, Vinyl Hayride revels in both the charm and the humor inherent in the country music attitude. It's album-sized and heavy on the twang - in other words, a must-have for fans of classic album graphics, country music, and hillbilly style.
