An idiosyncratic history of football: Pascal Claude’s personal collection of football songs gathered over the last twenty years
Dale, Forza, Allez, Hopp! The football record has more to offer than just music: the sleeves outline the history of football in a very special way. They tell of promotions, championship titles, finals and ground inaugurations, document the evolution of the playing equipment from the heavy brown leather ball to the television ready black and white one, to light and polished ‘Tango’ or show how the typography and imagery changed from one World Cup to another. Each cover is a piece of commercial art and a testament to its time.
