Richard & Willie - Funky Honkey, Nasty Nigger (1975)


This cover is just so wrong on a lot of levels. The provocative title, the look on the puppeteer's face that less suggests pleasure and more suggests a form of mild retardation, his ridiculous little bowtie, the fact that he's recieving a blowjob from a woman who's holding up a tiny American flag for whatever reason. It's so goddamned goofy and in such bad taste that it almost crashes through the barrier and goes from being a really bad album cover to being really awesome. Almost.

I think it's totally brilliant.. This guy has incredible humor, a delightfully weird voice to deliver his jokes. The cover is amazing.. it's so wrong, it's brilliant..
