    Country Joe & The Fish were very successful in San Francisco’s late 60s psychedelic rock scene. Protest song (and B-side on this release) “The Fish Cheer” was one of the group’s best known tracks and it actually got them barred from the Ed Sullivan Show right before a scheduled performance. The band performed at 1967’s Monterey Pop Festival and Woodstock added even more to their legend.

    This is the sleeve of a German single release, featuring tightly spaced Kabel Black. See the artwork for Trey Gruber’s 2019 releases for a contemporary revisitation of a similar aesthetic. In the use shown here, Kabel Black is used with unusually high hyphens and stylistically incongruous apostrophes.
