    Cover concept and art direction by William S. Harvey, with photography by Joel Brodsky. The type is West Behemoth Italic Swash. Something about the cover design was not quite right, it seems. Maybe the image of the broken mirror was too sinister? Maybe the type was too small? In any case, one year later, Elektra re-issued the album under a new name, The Road To Cairo, with a new cover by Elaine Gongora.
