Episode 308 "The Art Of McCartney"
Ever wonder why Paul McCartney was sitting with his Ovation Acoustic guitar while the other members of Wings were rocking out on the inner gatefold sleeve of Wings Over America? Did you ever take close note on why the hands of Michael Jackson seems slightly off on the cover of the SAY SAY SAY 1983 45 single sleeve? Was that Temporary Secretary 45 single sleeve leading to any curiosity? Who the hell was Sni Muk Fej on the corner of This One's single sleeve? Jeff Cummins' (try to spell his name backwards folks) art has created those head scratching questions and the 2Legs team are determined to get to the bottom of this conundrum even if it takes us two plus hours to get them answered.
From an artistic career that has spanned across decades covering (pun intended) the following: Jon Anderson, Rick Wakeman, Ted Nugnet, Alan White, Keith Emerson, Whitesnake, The Moody Blues, Eric Clapton, and Paul McCartney [PLUS MANY MORE] - Jeff's resume of over 45 years is one to be extremely proud of since he has contributed to some of the most iconic album art ever released.
Jeff takes Dave and Tom on a journey to tell the stories behind some of these releases. Revelations have been unearth on the never spoken truth behind the original concept of the 45 sleeve of Ebony and Ivory being eventually re-configured for SAY SAY SAY. 2Legs re-confirms, with the help of Jeff, the rumors of the re-issue of the Wings Over America LP coming later this year.
AS AN ADDED BONUS: Jeff was obviously enjoying our company and kept telling some more great stories. A bonus feature will be available after the main 2 hr segment.
