Album Cover Art Wednesday: Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.

We’ve all been talking about Jersey lately. I cannot imagine why. It’s had me thinking of Bruce Springsteen who is one of New Jersey’s claims to civilization, rock and roll style. Bruce’s first LP Greetings From Asbury, N.J. wasn’t a big hit when it came out in 1973, but the critics loved it and put the proto-Boss on the map.

The post card themed cover was designed by John Berg who was the art director at Columbia Recordsfrom 1961 to 1985.
