Permanent Waves censored album cover
Posted 23 August 2021 - 07:29 PM
While the 40th Anniversary release of Permanent Waves is a box set and the box cover shows the newspaper displaying "Blah, Blah, Blah", the inside album cover and the picture book both keep the error.
The headline was premature and it was Truman who won. It remained in print for most of the night before the Chicago Tribune pulled it.
Just the sort of cheekiness our beloved musicians (and Syme) would fight to keep alive!

He was a great singer.
A focus on Glen Campbell...

Actually no. As far as I'm aware, New Zealand is the only country that had the fully intact original cover design, complete with the Coca-Cola billboard. Every major market had its own version of the cover; so far I've noticed unique designs for Canada, the US, the UK, Germany, France, and New Zealand. There are probably others, but those are the most common ones.
My goal is to someday own a copy of every version. I'm trying to get my hands on a New Zealand copy, but they're rare and go for quite a bit of money.
I've not seen a New Zealand or France. Have copies from the other countries and Japan. Permanent Waves seems to be the album with the most cover variations for sure.
