So I decided I wasn't satisfied with the job the folks at EP collectors did on their upcoming release 'flying in twice' so I thought I'd have a crack at it myself.
I've done a cover for the set and a cover for each show, they all follow the same format, just with a different picture and different details (for when I set the cover art when I rip them to iTunes)

Have you seen the complete 8 panel Digi pack for the E.P. Collector CD?

To the best of my knowledge the CD isn't available yet.

No, as far as I know it's not out yet, which is a shame. And no, I've just seen the front cover as posted on this forum but I wasn't satisfied with the slightly blurred image, and I wasn't too keen on the font they used.

Thanks for your comments. I was interested to hear your feedback, because it was my design.

Of course, these things are subjective, but I was only allowed to work with pictures from the shows, and I my intention was to present Elvis in the most positive way. Especially with the cover shot.

Hopefully, the full 8 panel design will give a better perspective on what I was trying to achieve with the artwork.

Wow! It’s good to see people working with the label, I hope any of my comments didn’t come off to harsh and I understand only being allowed to work with photos from the show, I always try to do the same, except when it’s impossible. As I’m sure you can see I did take a lot of inspiration from your cover in regards to things like the placement of the text and the border on the outer edge, I look forward to seeing the full thing when I can order it! But as you said, all things like this are subjective

You don’t happen to have any idea when the CD might be released? It’s one I’m eager to add to my collection that’s for sure

Thanks for your comments. Not sure what's happening with the CD. I thought it would have been out by now. Hopefully it will be out soon.

It was a thrill to work on the cover art, but it's much more challenging than a personal project, because the producer's have their own ideas about what they want.

The cover image I chose reminded me of the one used for the 1977 In Concert album, but I didn't really want to go for a full on '70's RCA retro look, so tried to incorporate a modern design style.

Whilst only having certain images to work with can limit what can be achieved in terms of design ideas, I think it's great that the label only want to use images that represent the recordings included on the disc, and hopefully the complete design will be representative of that.

Oh yeah, I can imagine that doing it for a producer is a whole different ballpark compared to just making a cover for fun, because of course they'll have expectations and the customers will have expectations. I can certainly see the influence from the EIC album looking at it now. And yeah, I completely agree about having the artwork represent what's inside, whenever I design covers I always use photos from the show or from the same tour if there are none from the show that are decent enough to use.

I really wanted to do something with the gypsy suit, but there were no suitable photos from the actual show.

I scanned quite a few from Uniondale, but I was then told only to use photos from the actual shows, which is understandable, as this is part of the appeal of EP collector and Straight Arrow releases.

They really capture that moment in time when the show took place.

Yeah the gypsy suit is one of my favourites so I’d have liked to use that too, in the end I could only find that one black and white on but it had a huge red watermark across the middle so I had to carefully place it so the watermark wouldn’t be visible.
Anyway, hopefully the CD will soon be ready for release!

I hope so. It's been over a month now since it was announced. Perhaps, there are distribution delays due to covid.

Back at it again, this time it's Kansas City 77.
Quite similar to my remake of the Flying in Twice cover art, but I'm pretty pleased with the result.
Show wasn't that great (although there were a couple of rarities in there), neither is the sound on the CDR, and unfortunately the photos weren't the highest resolution but I'm satisfied with how it turned out, and hope you will be too!

It's funny to look back on some of my older artworks, and how much they've improved since I first started

::rocks


And while you're here, I'd appreciate it if anyone had any high quality picture from 16th July 75 they could share (I'm not fussed if it's taken from far away, high res is the only thing I'm after), I'm keen to make a cover for that show, for when Ed from the King's Court shares his tape with us (and what a great guy he is for offering to share his tapes for free!). The only decent one I have is this

Here's my mock up of a potential FTD or bootleg release, the Terre Haute show is pretty solid and the Oklahoma City show probably is too, not really the 2 July shows people will want the most but it'd definitely be a release I'd pick up, soundboard or not. Not my best work though, not sure about Terre Haute Elvis' head sticking over the title, but I went with it anyway

Here's my upgrade of the 'thunder in the night' cover, I didn't like the original colour scheme, and I figured I might as well use the pics from the show

Another fantasy FTD release, one that I think would work very well, two powerhouse shows from a brilliant tour. Plus, I'm sure we've got a couple of members on this forum who would be keen on a release from Louisville and a few who would finally like a Philly release :wink:

One thing that I would like, in order to improve my covers is better fonts for photoshop, the ones I have at the moment are pretty basic :(

Evening everyone! (Or should I say good morning (since it's 00:01 here))

I've been working on a cover for the second Binghamton show in 1977, I came up with a few, all in the same vein but all with different pictures. I think the 3rd version is my favourite however.

Not my best work, but thought I'd share anyway. Listening to this Pine Bluff show as I'm writing this. Pretty good show! I dare say on level with the June 75 tour. Things really turned round on this tour, by Jackson he was giving some of his better shows of the year, and in Arkansas he gave some of his best! This show is definitely a 'silver lining' to the 'cloud' that is the summer of '76. I actually prefer this show to many of the October shows

Okay guys here we go, I think this has to be my best cover so far, I don't normally like to brag, but I think it is a work of art!

Admittedly the photo is from Boston but I couldn't find any really appropriate photos from Cincinnati.

Nice artwork. I looked up the setlist and it looked great! Why do you think this show is better than the October shows? Keep up the good work!
