SteamrollerBlues' Alternate Covers

Post by SteamrollerBlues »

Hey friends. Looking at my old thread of covers, I'm not happy with some of the artwork posted, and it's quite a jumbled mess at this point as well. I figured I'd create a new thread and post my favorites from the first one, and then post some new stuff I've worked on!

Hi Steamroller.
You are very talented. I wish FTD would offer you a job.
Jumbled mess? :?: :?:
Can I request some 69 covers? Thanks in advance, I understand if no.
God bless you and your family.

Thank you kindly! I appreciate the kind words very much.

Of course you can request covers! Any shows from '69 in particular?

The current Moody Blue topic in All Elvis inspired me to have a go at creating a new cover for the LP:

I never particularly liked the design of the album, but I always liked the "superman" Elvis font.

Thank you. Just any random 69 shows will be fine.
God bless you and your family.

I would suggest it is nigh on impossible to improve on the original cover of Elvis as recorded at MSG. It has movement with a bang!

Once again some fantastic work Steamroller, I would kill for a cover for the evening show in Long Beach CA, 25th April 1976, I think ‘how great thou art’ would make a good title because the performance of that song in this show is nothing less than FANTASTIC, apart from that, go wild! Thank you!! (I’ve attached a couple of pictures from the show to help) ImageImageImage
