Every Cover Tells a Story

but some stories are more interesting than others!

Part 5: Mom's Apple Pie - Mom's Apple Pie

Why I bought it: The most well known record cover ever. It's in every book about the subject. See the picture below.

What happened afterwards: "The only thing this band is remembered for is the cover of their debut album. At first glance, the cover looks innocent enough. It shows a kindly looking farmer's wife holding forth a freshly baked pie with one slice removed. Upon closer examination, however, you can see that the pie is very special! Right at the tip of the missing slice in the filling of the pie can be seen a very nice rendering of female genitalia. After word got out, retailers demanded that Capitol Records do something about it. They did. They filled the slice up with bricks, surrounded it with barbed wire, and raised the American Flag."
