Keiichi Tanaami record covers


After Bathing At Baxter’s (1968) by Jefferson Airplane (front).

More psychedelia, although Ernst Fuchs could be considered psychedelic to some degree, and I did give him a mention in the piece I wrote for Communication Arts earlier this year. Keiichi Tanaami is less well-known in the west than Tadanori Yokoo despite the pair being contemporaries. This is only a partial discography, there may be more to find as Tanaami’s cover work isn’t always credited properly on Discogs. The Jefferson Airplane and Monkees covers were done specially for the Japanese releases. In the case of the Airplane one I much prefer the cover to Ron Cobb’s literal drawing of an aircraft.

One thought on “Keiichi Tanaami record covers”

  1. There’s a really good book of his work that I have called ‘Killer Joe’s Early Times’ that covers his work from 1965 – 1973 and which largely eschews text for full page and colour reproductions. It’s well worth the price of admission.
