This site is mostly about the many different Lp covers of

the Rolling Stones' "Some Girls".

 

The original album cover for Some Girls was an elaborate die-cut design created by Peter Corriston and Hbert Kretschmar, with colors varying on different sleeves, often depending on region. It featured The Rolling Stones in garish drag alongside select female celebrities, wigs and lingerie ads by Valmor Products.. The cover was immediately withdrawn when Lucille Ball, Farrah Fawcet, Raquel Welch, the estate of Marilyn Monroe, and Liza Minelli (representing her mother Judy Garland) threatened legal action. Valmore Products took legal action and were given a monetary award for use of their design.

The album was quickly reissued with a revised cover that removed all the celebrities, whether they had complained or not. The innersleeve was replaced with pictures of only Stones members and with the phrase "Pardon our appearance - cover under construction".

Even later a third version of the album cover was issued, this time with hand-drawn women on the cover.
