For decades Fania Records has been the go-to label for true-to-self latin music lovers. The label, founded in 1964 by Jerry Masucci & Johnny Pacheco in New York, carried a very distinct sound and image thru its peak years in the 70s and 80s. Whether it was thru illustration or photography, the covers would always call for attention either due to their chosen color palette or their gritty yet humorous photos.
During said timeframe, the label would often recur to their most notorious designer, Izzy Sanabria, to perfectly plaster a record’s mood onto its accompanying cover. Additionally, there are further catalogue highlights designed by numerous collaborators, such as Ron Levine, Ely Besalel, Juan Alvarez, among others.
