    Amelia in stretched caps and a two-colored application of Epic for the cover of the debut album by Nektar, an English progressive rock band originally based in Germany. Journey to the Centre of the Eye was released in 1971 on Bacillus Records. From Wikipedia:

    Though formally divided into 13 tracks, the entire album consists of a single continuous piece of music, with some musical themes which are repeated throughout the work. Because of its narrative nature, it has been called a rock opera and/or dense concept album. The story follows an astronaut who, while on a voyage to Saturn, encounters aliens who take him to their galaxy, where he is suffused with knowledge and wisdom. It is usually interpreted as a commentary on the nuclear arms race.
