Tommy Boy Records





Here are some small JPGs I got off the web of album covers I did back in the old school days for Newcleus and Afrika Bambaataa and Soul Sonic Force. The Afrika Bambaataa lettering was done by Pete Friedrich and the Newcleus logos were done by Pat (Redding) Scanlon. Sorry about the poor quality of the Newcleus JPG's.

Hey thanks Gabriel. Yep, this stuff is from before I did that cartoony stuff that I'm mostly known for.

YOU DID THE R.O.F. ALBUM COVER?!?! Bob, are you even aware of how LEGENDARY that song is in the hip-hop community? Jesus Christ!

Bob Camp said...

Yeah, I had an idea. I'm only sorry I didn't do more album covers.

Hey Randy! How the hell are you?
You have the album? Cool! I'm probably wrong about the letering but that was a hundred years ago. How are you? What's up?

Randolph Hoppe said...

Yep, I have the record. I went through an Arthur Baker phase back then.

I'm doing good, doing web stuff for Stevens Institute here in Hoboken. Other web clients, too. Also running the web-based (for now) Jack Kirby Museum & Research Center (http://kirbymuseum.org)

Do you need a scan of the Boy George poster? I can provide, if so.

Bob Camp said...

Hey Randy I'll check out the Kirby thing for sure. I don't have the Boy George thing. I'd love to have a jpg!

I didn't do a perfect job on the stitching, but here 'tis:

Yeah, it's a shame that you really don't have those twelve inches of space to work with on a release anymore. Maybe on a remix single, but vinyl is really not a mainstream format anymore. Sad.
