    I know that's John's foot, but every time I see this picture I imagine that George has suffered a horrific shin bone fracture.

    It looks like there was a lot of outlining and etching done in the pre-press department(s) on this image.

    From the back cover of the album. Not to show cropped/uncropped, but color vs black and white (or perhaps duotone or even tritone?). Ed's pink jumpsuit looks... well it's something. I'm glad the art director didn't go with a color image on the back cover. I don't know the real reason why, but maybe they saved money by printing the same colors for both front and back cover, as opposed to paying for 4/c process just for one image on the back cover.

    My favorite thing about this is that it's even clearer that Eddie is wearing velcro sneakers. I also had velcro shoes around this same time, but I had the excuse of being 9 years old.

    Thanks! Maybe post the original covers as well? Or, at least, the name of the album in question. I have no idea what those are, save for the first one.

    Ok, those are Rage Against the Machine s/t, The Doors - Bright Midnight Sampler (if I'm not mistaken it was released mirrored, so both cover and uncropped versions should be mirrored to resemble "real" look) and Metallica - Load.

    Released on the same label as Badfinger, here's the uncropped version of Mary Hopkin's "Let My Name Be Sorrow" single from 1971.

    NumberEight Came too late and stayed too long

    It had never occurred to me that the two images are part of the same painting!

    Where did you find this?
