    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    They were probably just relieved that you weren't living La Vida Loca.

    Liked this one a lot too. Apparently Jacques Wyrs (the guy who did this cover) died in 1988. There is a website for him, contact address is here: email.jpg

    Speaking of: when I had my 15th birthday in 1975 I asked the LP Abraxas by Santana. Instead I got Greatest Hits. The latter is of course also very good, but I always had the impression my parents didn't want me to look at that wonderful, almost naked woman on Abraxas. A few years later I had my revenge when I found a poster of the Mati Klarwein-art of Abraxas, which was a whole lot bigger than the LP-cover.

    My old vinyl copy (from the Columbia House record club) came with a big hype sticker, not on the shrinkwrap but stuck directly on the cover, concealing the naughty bits.

    This one always reminds me of portrayals of Jacob Marley's ghost from A Christmas Carol. Does this album have a theme at all?
