    Dutch cover of the 1973 single “Smokin’ In The Boy’s Room” by Brownsville Station, with B-side “Barefootin’”. The original artwork shown above uses Domino on top of a photograph. According to record collector Klaus Hiltscher, nobody could really decipher the text set in this outlined flash-in-the-pan face by Mecanorma, so soon after a second version with filled letters was produced, see below.
