This unique CD is a collection of album covers and photographs by photographer Henry Diltz and artist Gary Burden. If you like the music and albums of the 60's and 70's, you'll probably find this CD entertaining. It also contains some never-before-seen home videos and photos of 60's and 70's rock stars, candid conversations with those stars, and some original music videos.

The video CD runs on an IBM compatible PC with Windows 3.1 or Windows95. According to the documentation, it also runs on the Macintosh and the Power Macintosh. It requires 8 megabytes of RAM, 3 megabytes of hard disk space, a 2X CD-ROM drive, and 65K colors (although it will run at 256 colors). The interface was very well done and the quality of the sound and photos is excellent.

Album Covers


Here's the official PR blurb:

Under The Covers is like a magic carpet ride that takes you through the '60s and up to the present day, winding its way through music and festivals and happenings. The movies, pictures and sounds together provide a stunning backdrop to the stories both Henry Diltz and his art director partner, Gary Burden, tell.

This is a great collectors' item for America fans with an extensive section on the photo shoot for the Hat Trick album cover, interviews with Dewey Bunnell and Gerry Beckly, and previously unseen photos of the group. You can also hear America tracks while you view the CD-Rom - "Horse With No Name" and "Ventura Highway" are there in full stereo.

Henry has more pictures of America on his own website where people can order signed photos as well as the CD-Rom.
