EP39 - Bill Smith - The Jam Art Director + Cover Stories... "I've climbed the highest peaks, caught the wild wind home..."

Desperately Seeking Paul : Paul Weller Fan Podcast

In this episode, I chat to former Polydor Art Director, Bill Smith. Not only did Bill create that famous spray-paint The Jam logo that lives on today but he also created the covers for 5 of their albums and 16 of their singles! Across five decades, Bill Smith Studio has worked with more than 200 bands and artists, creating hundreds of album covers, singles bags, and CD covers. You may not know it, but if you bought records over the past forty years, you’ve probably bought a number of theirs. Bill Smith Studio worked with some of the world’s best photographers, illustrators and painters on covers for, among others, The Jam, The Cure, Kate Bush, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, King Crimson, Eric Clapton, Toyah, Johnny Thunders, Genesis, Queen and Mike Oldfield. In his new book 'Cover Stories' you’ll find the stories of 70 plus albums including contributions from the bands, the artists, photographers and painters involved.  Find out more and order your copy here - https://redplanetmusicbooks.com/products/cover-stories
