Legit find! Downsie is a doosie – one of the many faces drawn by Ed Benguiat that didn’t make it to digital yet. I hope the folks of Photo-Lettering.com have plans to remedy that.
I wonder if the cover artist is identical with Joseph F. Askew:
In the middle of 1970s the American painter and sculptor Joseph F. Askew, being just a 25-year-old student of the Art Students League in New York, moved to Vienna to learn the new painting techniques with the master of phantastic realism Ernst Fuchs. Askew and Fuchs remained friends and were even neighbours for long years: the American artist moved to Vienna for half a century and later, he, like Fuchs, moved to the art center Castillon on the Riviera, where he lives and works till now. — ars mundi
This would explain why the only other album cover he is credited for on Discogs is an Austrian schlager pop record from 1982.
