Some highlights (for those of us who remember that decade) – The Cold War ended, the compact disc was born, Disco was out, Punk and New Wave were in, and hairdos reached towards the sky. The Atari 2600 and Intellivision videogame consoles peaked then crashed. MTV, CNN and cable television started making their way across the country.

OK… enough reminiscing. The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (aka Grammys) gave their awards for Best Recording Package Design during those years too. Here they are:
