Back in the 70's I picked up a book of Album Covers Art. While stationed in the Philippines I had a local artist paint one of them for me. Both are long gone but I can't find any pictures of the group or artwork so I was hoping someone might help?

The cover was a reel to reel tape deck with arms playing a guitar and strands of tape flying off the reels. I'm not sure it even had an artist name on the cover and I just can't remember the bands name. I've been trying to find this art for some time now so I hope anyone might have any knowledge of who the band might have been?

The album 'Reel To Real' by Love has reel to reel tape on the cover. That record came out in 1974.

Thanks SID, but that wasn't it. This looks like an old Akai Reel to Reel with arms coming out the side playing a guitar. It's really a cool picture but I have no idea who the group might have been. I wish now I hadn't gotten rid of the Album Cover Album book.

I've tried every search combination I can think of but it hasn't come up yet. Knowing what I was listening to back then it was probably a heavy metal group.

Thanks again!

Glad I could help, 6b. That was an easy one for me - I've been an ARS fan for decades.
