“Voices” is an album by pop duo Hall & Oates often seen as a revolution in the Hall & Oates sound, paving the way for future blockbusters like “Private Eyes”. It also was the first album that Hall & Oates produced by themselves, working in conjunction with renowned engineer Neil Kernon.
The original LP album cover was in black & white and had several variations with the duo in different poses. The half circle, sound-like waves were embossed and raised; a marketing technique commonly used in late ’70’s record sleeve packaging.
It was subsequently replaced in 1981 with a color photograph of the duo, excluding the original pose of Hall “escaping” from his white trench coat-like jacket. No “RE” of any type on back cover. Cover has embossed lettering and sound waves. Hall’s head almost touches the word “Voices” on front cover.
