Buying the LPs sampled on Nice Enough to Eat (the last one!)
This post should finish off the back cover of the LP.
Filling up the rest of the space sub-waterline are some brightly coloured sea creatures, an inverted airliner [right in the centre and as low as these things get], and something that looks a bit like a little green submarine.
The highest “fish” is at the far left, just beneath the waterline. This is a green eel, beneath which are a blue fish decorated with a map, and with a fork sticking out of it, a curiously symmetrical yellow beast, a red fish, and a large yellow squid-like creature. To the right of this group are a blue fish, a blue shark, and a blue swordfish. Above the upside-down plane are a little blue fish and a little red fish; the only aquatic denizen to its right being a blue sea urchin.
These are the credits to the top right below the waterline:
