1 Pacific Eye & Ear

Pacific Eye and Ear with Ernie Cefalu at the helm and the creative team which included Drew, Bill Garland, Joe Petagno, Carl Ramsey, Ingrid Haenke and Joe Garnet, have created some of the most memorable and iconic albums covers of all times. Just to name a few...
Iron Butterfly, Scorching Beauty
Earth Wind & Fire, Open Our Eyes
Black Sabbath, Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath
Jefferson Airplane, Baron Von Tollbooth & the Chrome Nun
Alice Cooper, Greatest Hits
Alice Cooper, Welcome To My Nightmare
Tony Orlando and Dawn, To Be With You
Aerosmith, Toys in the Attic
West, Bruce and Laing, Whatever Turns You On
Alice Cooper, Billion Dollar Babies
The Bee Gees Main Course
I think the covers/bands/titles and artists speak for themselves and make
Pacific Eye and Ear in my opinion, part of rock history!
