I'm specifically looking for the WILSON typeface. Feel it ought to be easy but can't find an exact match.
Thought I recognized this, but haven't found it yet. It has to be a font designed before August 1977, the release date of the LP.
For WILSON the high blocky terminal S and parallel O fit Anzeigen Grotesk http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/linotype/anzeigen-grotesk-lt/ available since 1943, and Impact http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/mti/impact/ available since 1965 but the letters are wider. It would have been easy for the photolettering company to make it wider, as this was a common practice. But perhaps someone recognizes this as a letters from an unmodified old font.
The smaller thin letters, seem to be from a different font. Note the O has rounded not parallel sides.
BTW a contemporary digital font with a fairly good fit is Gusto Black http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/bagraphics/gusto/
For 'DENNIS' and 'PACIFIC' at this size, you could easily go with Helvetica (1957, Neue is 1983).
Many thanks for your help.
