Albert Ayler Trio – Spiritual Unity (1964-5)

Nothing much to say about this one. I just love how this looks, and love the album too, though Ayler's Spirits Rejoice (1965) remains my favorite. A very basic label with an excellent style sense, sharp use of ultra-clear lowercase lettering, nice color choice against the off-white background... beautiful in its simplicity and directness. ESP-Disk' releases are usually a good place to look for nice center labels (and sleeves).

  1. Ooooh, this is so nice. Helvetica with tight kerning, this looks like it could be a label from a minimal electronic music release from the early 2000s.
