    Is it just me or does the Steve Miller Band logo on the Greatest Hits 1974-78 album have the outline of a naked woman?

    Let's do a test: Do you also see an outline of a naked woman in this image below?:

    I always thought it was a woman with a guitar. Or a very pregnant woman.

    No, I don’t see it. It was actually my friend who pointed it out to me, and now I can’t unsee the naked woman. I just thought I’d see what people thought.

    Sometimes a horse head is just a horse head...unless you're Jack Woltz.

    The real album cover has an outline of a voluptuous female figure, but there's no indication of it being naked. The suggestion of nakedness is either click-bait or a figment of someone's imagination.

    Can't see it at all, but here's an album cover that would get into trouble nowadays....

    Actually the cover of their first album would probably get into even more trouble:

    I totally see the sillouete of the woman on the cover. The bottom of the horse. The nose is unmistakably a woman’s and the big hips. Looks like she is leaning on her right side and her head tilted left.

    yes there is a woman there.....hard to tell if she's naked as mentioned though, but yes, there is a woman there.
    quite easy to see actually.

    That cover was designed by Detroit's Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley who also did the similar "Book of Dreams" by Steve Miller on top of a mountain of other iconic designs. About 25 years ago I attended a sale Mouse had in Ferndale, Michigan. He'd had a liver transplant (likely from a lifetime of handling air-brush paint and solvents) that had apparently been paid for by the Grateful Dead but was on his own to pay for the needed anti-rejection meds. Hence he was selling sketches and scraps from throughout his career to help finance same. For $40 each I could have purchased the original pencil-on-vellum preliminary drawings for the "Book of Dreams" cover, the Miller hits album being discussed here along with a plethora of images that found their way onto Grateful Dead, Journey and other famous albums, primarily from Frisco bands. I did pay him to sign a second run Family Dog poster I had but kick myself for not picking up the beginnings of one of his and Kelley's more iconic pieces.
