Cameo is a name synonymous with funk and soul music, recognized by their iconic album covers that are a tribute to the band’s unique and edgy sound. The band, which formed in the mid-70s, garnered success throughout the following decades with their distinct sound and style.
We All Know Who We Are
Their album, “We All Know Who We Are,” features a cover design that is pure 70s groovy, with a popping background and a striking image of the band. The album showed the band’s potential, peak, and promise of more to come.
An Evening With Cameo
An Evening With Cameo is one of the band’s most memorable albums, both for its sound and for the striking cover art. The album cover features a close-up image of band leader Larry Blackmon, complete with his signature red codpiece, making for a truly unforgettable image.
Another of Cameo’s iconic album covers is Cardiac Arrest, released in 1977. It features a black-and-white image of a man in a straightjacket, surrounded by illustrations that are equal parts trippy and haunting. This cover art is a perfect representation of the band’s bold and experimental approach to funk music.
