Notes Miles was allegedly aiming for the youth market hence, perhaps, this cover design. Corky McCoy’s work would also be seen on the follow up live double album. If you haven’t heard On The Corner you really should. One of my desert island choices. I love the disjunction between the imagery and the atonal acid funk attack of the music.

  4. Love the Fat Albert inspired funkiness.
    But pound for pound you can’t beat the insanity that is the cover of Bitches Brew

    or the overall WTF ‘Planet Sauvage’-inspired “Miles Davis and Horns”

  5. Good call on the strange precedent that is Miles Davis and Horns. My favourite Miles covers as referenced in the post above are the Japanese releases of Agharta with its occluded sister, Pangaea, a close second. And not forgetting the brilliant Tutu…
