Controversial Album Covers V (Pt. 6)

Year: 1981

Bow Wow: See Jungle! See Jungle! Go Join Your Gang, Yeah. City All Over! Go Ape Crazy

The Problem:  Album cover show the band including its lead singer Annabella Lwin, who was 14 at the time, nude in the style of Édouard Manet’s Le déjeuner sur l’herbe. The Andy Earl cover caused outrage that led to an investigation by Scotland Yard, instigated by Lwin’s mother and never appeared on UK and US releases.

My Take: Okay, first I like the idea they were going for, but maybe they should’ve thought this through because of Lwin’s age at the time. I mean, you can’t really see anything, but it was just poor planning of this. Great idea, poor execute.
