Liner Notes: Recollections of a Dying Art
Fred Dellar, Rock's Backpages, 17 April 2009
DURING THE LATE '60s I received a fee of seven pounds for supplying my first sleeve note – one that adorned Dizzy Gillespie's Jambo Caribe. I rang the record company office and requested a copy of the record only to be told "If you get paid, you don't get the album as well!" Since then, I've penned in excess of 200 liner notes. This piece is about those who have more famously contributed to the genre. Long may they grab Grammys.
Total word count of piece: 2449
