Jazz and soul album covers nod to comfort food in late 60's and 70's, yet the reference threads far and wide. Without further delay, here's today's list of food-related covers to stir up an appetite:
10.Jimmy Smith. Home Cookin'. 1959
Hammond master's album that's been reissued three times --most recently
in 2005-- is a collection of three live sessions from the late 1950's.
The album is one of several of Smith's food-themed covers.
Rustic bread from someone's southern roots --not his-- having grown up in Philly with a move to New York later in life.
An acoustic bluegrassy set named The Pizza Tapes after a delivery boy stole Garcia's copy and passed it over to a New York radio station.
A late night funky jam session from another Hammond master, whose album cover glorifies someone's soul food special.
Pre-dinner grace on the cover of this debut album includes Cee-Lo Green and put Dirty South on the map.
5. Arlo Guthrie. Alice's Restaurant.1967
An anti war song that references a restaurant owner in Great Barrington, Massachusetts who held Thanksgiving in the song.
The follow up to Beggars Banquet and one of the band's most praised albums, the cover of which features a delicious looking vinyl layer cake.
