    Wikipedia:

    “Part of the Union” is a song by English band Strawbs featured on their 1973 album Bursting at the Seams and was the band’s most successful single, peaking at number 2 in the UK Singles Chart.

    A fairly tatty sleeve in dull green, yellow and black, the band vignette photos pulled from a “band File” feature in an issue of Melody Maker.

    The typography brings together two faces from the Letraset library: Lazybones, a knockoff of Cooper Nouveau Bold, here with lowered caps; and Rodeo, an adaptation of a 19th century wood typeface also known as Mansard or Helvin.
