Brisbane act gets Roger Dean treatment

Brisbane progressive rocker Ben Craven snared legendary UK artist Roger Dean to do the cover for his July 1-due album Great And Terrible Potions. Dean did covers for the likes of Yes, Asia, Uriah Heep and Rick Wakeman. Craven says it’s an “”honour” and “surreal” to be appreciated “by an artist that I have grown up with,” His record label Liquid Online Media is getting into the spirit by releasing a limited edition vinyl version complete with a traditional gatefold sleeve featuring Dean’s artwork.
