This Montrose album cover design is one of a collection of prints launched in 2014, celebrating previously unpublished album cover art from the Hipgnosis archives.
Jump On It saw Montrose at the height of their commercial success and this cover design by Hipgnosis really hit while the iron was hot! The back cover images was of the backside, as it were. Simple but fun.
We think that the snappy title in simple typography on striking, saucy (outrageous?) image was echoed in more recent times with The Strokes' release, Is This It.
