"Country Life" by Roxy Music

Wikipedia writes this about "Country Life" by Roxy Music: ...the fourth album by British rock band Roxy Music, released in 1974 and reaching #3 in the UK charts. The album is considered by many critics to be among the band's most sophisticated and consistent.
The cover features two scantily-clad models, Constanze Karoli and Eveline Grunwald. Bryan Ferry met them in Portugal and persuaded them to do the photo shoot (...) The cover image was considered controversial in some countries such as the United States, Spain, and The Netherlands, where it was censored for release. As a result, a later American LP release featured a different cover shot from the album's back cover that featured only the trees.

Nowadays nobody is shocked anymore by nudity. Not even if they're cartoon heroes. What if the cover models wouldn't have been live ones in 1974?
