    ?? Doesn't look like Cooper Black to me.. (or even a typeface - it looks handdrawn); on the other hand, I never noticed that little pyramid in the centre of the eye before - really cool.

    Some of these fonts are not like the others, some of these fonts just don't belong, can you tell me which fonts are not like the other, before I finish this song?

    I always thought the use of this 'font' on the Beatles 'red & blue' and John Lennon's "Imagine" album faces to indicate "Side One, Side Two, etc." looked a little 'out of place' to me!

    I thought this font was Franklin Bold.

    I'm not one of yer top fontologists, but I reckon these two fit the bill. 1970 and 1971 respectively.

    And, with a bit of cheating, I discovered this November 1967 Dutch release...
