The Cranbrook Art Museum is kicking off what it says is the most comprehensive exhibition of authenticated Warhol record covers to date -- including three recently discovered albums that never before have been shown in such a setting."Warhol On Vinyl: The Record Covers, 1949-1987+," which opens to the public on Saturday and runs through March 15, features 60 unique album covers and nearly 100 in all, including color and size variations.There's The Velvet Underground's 1967 debut album, "The Velvet Underground & Nico," which features a Warhol drawing of a banana on a plain white background; as well as 1971's "Sticky Fingers," a Rolling Stones record that includes not only hits such as "Brown Sugar" and "Wild Horses" but a provocative cover of a man in jeans with a zoomed-in shot of the zipper.On display are the cover of a 1955 Count Basie album, which features Warhol's first celebrity portrait, and the "Giant Size $1.57 Each" record, his first pop-art record cover.
