As New/No Jacket - As Issued. 260pp, 275 color illustrations. "Marred for Life! presents over two hundred and fifty record covers lovingly and mischievously vandalized by anonymous music lovers selected from the collection of Greg Wooten, a Los Angeles-based collector, musician and design purveyor. Wooten and his community of record-collector friends have discovered these in used record bins over the course of several years. Sometimes over-the-top and other times subtle - and often, really funny - the objects become a kind of found folk art. Bloodshot eyes, blackened teeth, mustaches, tattoos, reviews, love letters, collage, and pornographic and psychedelicized embellishment adorn these record covers by Elvis, the Beatles, Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix, John Coltrane, Yoko Ono, Nina Simone, Led Zeppelin, Sparks, LL Cool J., David Bowie, The Velvet Underground, Mose Allison, Prince, Tim Buckley, Neil Young, and many, many more can be found here in this fabulous new release from J&L Books edited by publisher Jason Fulford in a way that highlights various connections and humor between the covers.". A brand new, pristine example of this ultra-charming tome perfect for the vinyl enthusiast in your life additionally BOLDLY SIGNED by author and collector Greg Wooten!
