The W.L. Eury Appalachian Collection includes over 3,000 LP recordings, and a mere 45 examples of album cover art from the collection are on display on the Library’s 4th floor. This new exhibit, “33 1/3 @ 3333: Long Play Album Art from the W. L. Eury Appalachian Collection,” showcases album covers from artists with roots within the Appalachian region, ranging from traditional fiddle tunes to chart-topping hits. The covers selected reflect the personalities and artistic sensibilities of the performers and are themselves visual statements (enhanced by the music they recorded).
The exhibit, curated by Trevor McKenzie, will run through August 2016.
Listening copies of these albums and their accompanying liner notes are available within the Appalachian Collection in Special Collections. For access, please inquire at the service desk inside the department on the Library’s 4th floor. Click here to browse a list of the collection’s LP recordings, with accompanying covers.
