"Following the success of Jazz Covers, this volume features over 500 legendary covers from the golden era in black music that have conquered the world. From Marvin Gaye to Michael Jackson, the Temptations to Earth, Wind & Fire, and James Brown to Prince, Funk & Soul Covers portrays the often breathtaking album art that helped make these essentially African-American musical forms both world famous and massively influential, and an essential part of 20th century music history.

Featuring interviews with key industry figures—including performers, producers, and writers—Funk & Soul Covers also provides cultural context and design analysis for many of the record covers.
