Cover Heaven first saw the light of day in 1998 when computers were basic, the internet was in its infancy and in the time taken for a web page to appear on screen you could make yourself a cup of tea, landscape your garden and have enough time left over to watch paint dry. Back then the idea took off slowly but within a year the fledgling Cover Heaven site had been visited by over 480,000 people around the world. Some people didn’t quite understand the concept or purpose with many believing it was simply an excuse to feature attractive women in the guise of the study of record covers through the ages. They were of course absolutely right but it’s also much more and in the end whatever you want it to be. Many covers are cheesy, some are astonishingly sexist while others are faintly ridiculous. And some are works of art. The one thing they all have in common is that they are often pleasing and/or amusing to look at and give us a glimpse into a past that is now hard to conceive. We hope you enjoy your ramble through the covers of Cover Heaven.
