Controversial Album Covers VII (Pt. 13)

Year: 1987

Sonic Youth: Sister

The Problem: The album’s artwork has been edited two separate times to obscure images. The first of which was a Richard Avedon image depicting a 12-year-old girl, due to a lawsuit threat. The other instance was when am image of the Disney Magic Kingdom was deliberately covered with a barcode, likely due to copyright complaints.

My Take: For the first cover, I have a few questions. Who is the girl? Where did they find her? When did her family/parents find out? Why did they sue?  For the other cover, Disney is vicious about copyright, you know?
