I watched it Saturday; lots of great interviews. I did wish there was a little bit more about the actual process; they sort of got into the nitty gritty with Houses of the Holy and they talked about the hand tinting a couple of times but, how did they actually create the DSOTM image? Because it seems simple until you realize it isn't. But that probably gets into the arcane where normal people don't want to go.

But us abnormal people would have enjoyed it.

I haven't checked on the TV feed yet but I saw it listed on the Netflix website.  I added it to my "List" from there.

I think it *just* landed on Netflix Dec. 1. I doubt there's a cacheing issue but maybe?

Agree 100%

It's not a great movie or documentary, but the stories about some of the covers were fun to see.  It brought back some memories of the Floyd posters and stickers...and the bag on the outside of In Through the Out Door.  I wished they would have told the stories in a bit more linear way.... giving a bit more focus on the growth of the business and the relationships in chronological order.

Watched and enjoyed! Great to see the type of creativity they had before the digital age. I'm a big 10cc fan and didn't realize they did the majority of their cover art. It was fun watching them wrangle the sheep on the ottoman.

The original:


Apparently the band had asked Freas to recreate his artwork for their album.
  I always knew his name better as Kelly Freas - I guess he went back and forth on it.  Aside from the hundreds of sci-fi illustrations he did he also did a lot of work for Mad Magazine - mostly covers.  There's this other article by an alleged "art critic" who doesn't even seem to know who Freas was and clearly saw very little of his works. Most people I know who studied art and illustration (or read a lot of sci-fi) know who Kelly Freas was - he was just about as prominent and influential as Frank Frazetta to nerds like us.


 

He gave a talk at the local community college when I was in high school. Of course I was totally planning to go get my album autographed but something happened, not sure what. Illness wouldn't have kept me home, so I imagine it conflicted with something I couldn't wriggle out of.

Reading back thru the posts it seems like I'm saying I never flipped the Queen album over to see the back but of course I was talking about the Gentle Giant.

I didn't realize that the image I put up didn't have the album info title etc on it, that it was just the painting. Frank Kelly Freas, classic Sci-Fi illustrator.
