    A quintessential 1970s use of Pioneer on this album cover designed by Howard Moo Young.

    The Jamaica Gleaner has a nice profile of Howard Moo Young, where he mentions a stint working in New York City and turning down an offer to work for the legendary Ed Benguiat. Maybe because he could do things like this cover: For All We Know.
