Designer (not artist) for Jeff Beck Group's "Beck-Ola"?
December 19, 2006 11:49 AM   Subscribe

I need to know the cover designer for the Jeff Beck Group's album Beck-Ola. Please note that I do not need to know the artist of the cover image -- I'm aware that the painting on the cover is The Listening Room by Magritte. What I need is the name of the person who designed (or art directed) the sleeve itself. Alternatively, if there is no designer or art director credited on the sleeve, that would be helpful, tpo. Thanks!

If you really wanted to be "witty," davy, you should have linked to the Magritte exhibition that's at LACMA right now, which A) I just spent a year of my life working on, B) has The Listening Room on display, and C) is why I need to know the cover designer of Beck-Ola in the first place. But yes, aren't you clever for making a point of not answering my question.

Well, I can tell you that there is no designer or art director credited on the sleeve, at least. (Original vinyl - perhaps some more recent reissue may have more extensive liner notes?) The back cover does name the painting and artist though.

Thanks, zoinks! That's just what we're looking for.

Here are the credits (down the page a bit) listed in the jacket, if you want to see them. It sounds like there is indeed a new edition from the last year or so with expanded liner notes, so somebody who has it might have to weigh in.
