Pink Floyd and The Incredible String Band.
The Incredible String Band.
This album has one of the most extraordinary psychedelic front covers ever produced, of a type which could only have come in to being in the late 1960s, and indeed really only in 1967 or at the latest 1968:
As can be observed, the only words are “The Incredible String Band”, but even these few are hard to discern in this amazing tableau. It was worth buying LPs in those days just to get the artwork.
The back cover is slightly more prosaic, and does include the album title in slightly more legible lettering:
The words “Layers Of The Onion” are the yellow bits with green stripes. Beneath the oval picture of the band members are their names, carefully arranged in the cover style to emphasise the names of two birds.
In the lower section are the track listings and credits. The sleeve design and artwork is credited to “SIMON & MARIJKE”.
