Essential Space Age Pop Albums

less than 1 minute read

I want to figure out this crazy “space age pop” look. These aren’t the ten best album covers, but here’s a start. My source for this list was an article called Ten Basic Space Age Pop Albums. It claims these albums set up the definitive sound for the genre. That might not be exactly what I’m looking for either, but I’ll save that for a different post.

The images are linked to more good stuff.
