This is Mr Fab the legal assistant speaking: yes, the Stones could sue over the "Sticky Fingers" cover. And the Beatles could sue Klaus Voorman over the "revolver" cover, etc etc. The album cover is considered to be part of the album, hence the artist's property.Reed and Cale have never had a beef with Warhol -heck, they did a Whole tribute album dedicated to him. Its the Warhol people they are beefin' with, using property that the Velvets split with Andy 50/50 without consulting the Velvets.

The 1st VU album is probably the 1st album to generate lawsuits for both its front & back covers (Eric Emerson sued because his image was on the back, which forced Verve to change it).

Yawn. It's inexcusably avant-derrière to point it out, but ...



"You should have seen the cover they wanted to do! It wasn't a glove, believe me."

Lynyrd Skynrd - The Street Survivors flame cover was released a couple of days after the crash. It was replaced with the same cover sans flames.

Roxy Music - Country Life - removed the 2 models and left the shrubs as the cover. When the album first came out it was wrapped in black shrink wrap.

Don't forget about the most famous one - The Beatles butcher cover

Welcome to the Beautiful South? I've only ever seen one cover, the one with the two folks, one of whom has a gun in her mouth. Did someone object?

Ah, I see from Wikipedia that Woolworth's refused to stock the album because of the cover, so an alternate cover was provided. Woolworth's still sold records then?

Vampire Weekend, too. Can't forgot that "not-public-domain" picture.

It wasn't withdrawn and replaced, but of course the Blind Faith album had an "alternative" cover for the U.S. (though the original cover was released in the U.S. as well, from what I understand).

What would you expect from the author of "She's Lost Control"...?

Great White: the one with the woman on the anchor (some covers show her in the water with her head above water and her body underwater).
