Miles Davis is the next entry with his 1970 album, Bitches Brew.  I included the fold out section of the album to show both sections of the artwork by Mati Klarwein.  Klarwien did the art for a few of Miles Davis’ albums as well as Carlos Santana and many others.  He was born in Hamburg Germany in 1932 and feld to Palestine at the age of 2.  Growing up he turned into a world traveler and later studied with Salvador Dali.  His major art influences were surrealism and Timothy Leary once commented “Klarwein didnt need psychadelics” although his artwork often appeared that way.  Klarwein died at the age of 69 in 2002 with at least 30 album covers to his credit.
