Stranded in the Jungle

An exotic setting for an album cover is a great way to grab the attention of the record buying public, but it can leave an artist with a bit of a problem. Does the music match up with said exoticism or is this really just another late period Three Dog Night record???

I was somewhat surprised that Ian Lloyd was the lone user of the always effective bird of paradise.  Below, Richard Torrance proves "Anything's Possible" as he was able to convince Capitol to OK this design!
