Album Covers Site

John Brown (who designed the album art for this show) has set up a Website with high-quality (72 dpi, 500 x 500) jpeg files of several dozen Frank Sinatra album covers for use on portable media players. Use of the material is free of charge and contributions to the collection are encouraged.

According to the Website, "With the advent of iTunes, iPods and other mp3 players, electronic album art is more and more necessary. Unfortunately, sources for this art usually only offer crudely scanned, low resolution facsimiles of what used to be glorious pallets of art and photography."

I think this is a wonderful service to those of us who love Frank Sinatra and like to carry his music with us. I have to admit though, a quick glance at the Website made me want to order an iPhone!

Here's the Website.

Thank you for sharing the Frank Sinatra Album Artwork website. The images are are of a really high quality and I love being able to use the images for my itunes and ipod. However, for some reason the site is no longer available. Do you know if John Brown will be putting it up again soon? It is such a great resource that it would be shame if it no longer exists.

Sadly, I believe that John was asked to take the site down by one or more of the record companies involved.

Such is the silliness of copyright in the digital age.

Thank your quick reply to my question. That's a real shame about the site.
