    This debut album (1989) by pop duo Flipper’s Guitar had a great influence on the Japanese music scene in the 1990s. After releasing three albums, the band broke up, and two of the members continued their music careers as producers and solo artists: Keigo Oyamada (Cornelius) and Kenji Ozawa.

    The sleeve typography clearly refers to Helen Merrill’s 1960s jazz album Parole e Musica.

      Here is the cover that inspired Flipper’s Guitar. Later (re-press) versions use Futura for blurb and song titles, just like “three cheers”. Note the quote marks that are positioned above and underneath the album title.
