The artist's name is depicted, at the top, in various styles: first name is in bold, black capitals, second name is below and bordered in a slightly distorted rectangle in black capitals, the final part is in small, thin black capitals. The main background is a grey concrete-like piece, over top is a colour photo of the group shot with two men clearly seen; the man in the foreground is crouching while playing a low slung guitar. Beyond and to his right is a man seen in left profile and is playing a saxophone. Stage lights are also visible. Other personnel are indistinct; the album name is printed across the bottom in pink, block capitals.
