Atlantic Records was pressured by CSN&Y's management to spend the money in the manufacturing of this classic cover. The exterior of the album "Deja Vu" had the granulated touch of a leather bound book and designed with inlaid gold lettering.

This dinosaur album cover from the early 60's by famed conductor Martin Denny used the taboo word of "Exotica" as to suggest it's contents were appropriate mood music or maybe even suggest bedroom music.

This fine album titled "Back to Back" by Booker T. and The MG's & The Mar-Keys used a live shot from their Stax Europe Tour as to mirror the albums contents.

This controversial cover was pulled from the retail stores when it was discovered that the sliced portion of the pie depicted a vulva. After the recall, the jacket artwork was tweaked to satisfy it's critics.

As an Atlantic promotion man during the release of The Rolling Stone's "Sticky Fingers" album, I was bombarded with complaints from radio and retail personnel about it's vulgar cover. Some liked it, some didn't. This Andy Warhol designed jacket actually had a real zipper located in the center. I know what you're thinking. Don't ask.

That is unforunate about the Blind Faith cover, because it really is a beautiful cover I think.
