Stanley Mouse Retrospective at the Haight Street Art Center

Postby Lora » Wed Feb 12, 2020 11:42 am

This is going to be amazing! https://haightstreetart.org/blogs/news/ ... rospective

Journey fans, mark your calendars! Join the Haight Street Art Center (San Francisco) on Saturday Feb 15 for the opening of Stanley Mouse: A Retrospective. Stanley Mouse will be in the house!

Stanley Mouse and his partner, Alton Kelley, created many iconic Journey album covers and art, including Infinity, Evolution, Departure, Captured, and Escape.

The first 100 people through the door will receive a special, commemorative, screen printed handbill.

"Stanley Mouse is best known for the eye-popping and iconic posters, album covers, and T-shirt designs he made–often in collaboration with Alton Kelley–during the Heyday of San Francisco’s counterculture renaissance and well into the 1970s. His influential work during that era captured the color, fun, mystery, passion, and creatively liberating experimentalism of those tumultuous times."

Cool. I wonder if any unused Journey artwork will be displayed.

I bought a book years ago at a record collector's convention called Freehand: The Art of Stanley Mouse. Amazing artwork. A good part of it was Grateful Dead related, but there were a couple of rare Journey pieces in there. Maybe a concert poster or two. The Captured scarab is on the front cover.

Perhaps the Freedom album cover. That would be cool.

I doubt Stanley Mouse was involved with the early artwork for Raised on Radio.

I remember the quote from I believe from Rockline was the artwork looked more like a ZZ top cover and one of the songs sounded more like Scorpions song (I wonder if there was an Producer before Perry).

What is that that you are talking about? Did Journey record a song or songs that were intended to be on the album that became known as Raised On Radio, but not wind up putting that song/s on the album? I don't recall ever hearing about that?
I'd love to get to hear a song of theirs that sounds like the Scorpions!

Freedom was suppose to be the next Journey record after Frontiers.
In an interview from 85 ish they spoke on the delay of the next record because they werent feeling the vibe,
and most was re-recorded, which makes sense to why Smith appears on some tracks.

I have tried serching for that rockline interview, to no avail, the same one they announce their new drummer, which never was.

I already knew that Freedom was supposed to be the title of the album that instead was named ROR. But I never knew anything about the song that is supposed to sound like a Scorpions song. Unless maybe that is a reference to "Let It Rock You?" That was a hard Rocking song, although I wouldn't compare it to the Scorpions.

Nice to see your posts Lora. :D

When you went, did you see any of the work his team did with Journey?
