    Jana (VGC, 1965) in use for the cover of Tell Mama by American singer Etta James (1938–2012). The album was first released in 1968 on the Cadet label by Chess Records in 1968. MCA would acquire the Chess masters in the mid-1980s and re-release it in 1987 (shown below), with an adaptation of the original design by Jerry Griffith featuring an illustration by Bill Utterback.
