release - 1978
album art - Kelly & Mouse
The album-art-illustration by Kelly & Mouse of the front cover, reveals a lot of power. Not only because of the chosen colours and the flaming horse which seems to be at full speed. The illustration has far much more power than 'one' horsepower. Find the almost hidden (naked?) woman and you'll understand what I mean.
The lettering was created by Sam Shepard. Also full of power on the front cover but very boring on the back cover. Photography by David Stahl (inside).
