Cover: Thore Hansen
In September 2008 I wrote a blog post on Norwegian illustrator (and author) Thore Hansen, and his record covers. I've found some other albums too now, and hope there are lots more. Please write a comment if you recognise his style and have some albums I don't know.
So far this is my list:
Per Husby Septett: «Peacemaker» (1976)
Various Artists: "Maiden Voyage" (Melodisc 2002)
Kiruna : "Irun" (Melodisc 2003)
Various Artists: "Aerien Voyage" (Melodisc 2004)
Various Artists: "Stellar Voyage"(Melodisc 2005).
Trygve Madsen: "Sketches from Norway" (Pro Musica 2005).
Various Artists: «Drunk In A Ditch - Tales From Rock Limbo 1969-1980» (Rhino/Warner) (2006).
And you might want to buy a book for your child too! Thore Hansen illustrated Tor Åge Bringsværds "Ruffen : the sea serpent who couldn't swim" (MacKenzie Smiles, 2008). Great book!
Changes 1 July: I had Popol Vuh: "Popol Vuh" (1972) on the list, but this one is illustrated by Bjørn Morisse. (W are not talking about the German band Popol Vuh here).
