Diamond Head - Lightning To The Nations: The White Album album review
Diamonds are forever
When The Beatles released an album in a plain white sleeve in 1968 (The Beatles, aka the White Album), it wasn’t as ordinary as it first seemed. In fact it was designed at great expense by renowned pop artist Richard Hamilton. For New Wave Of British Heavy Metal pioneers Diamond Head, however, their White Album was the real thing, a bog-standard piece of drab cardboard produced at no great expense at band manager Reg Fellows’s own packaging factory.
