I would have thought that to be one of the first and easiest changes to make and instantly satisfying for him to do. I don't understand that one at all.

It even reminds of the Waka/Jawaka cover a little bit.

He maybe gained control of the artwork along with the masters....instead of paying someone (Cal) to come up with something new... just let the originals represent, like it had for decades.

. . . . . . .bit of an overstatement; what i hated about the albums was no credits or sleeve notes at all....for 15 years, the only info about these came from norbert's zappalog
