A quick word about Tom Wilkes striking cover art ...  You can't really get the 3D effect here, but the embossed cover reflected what was obviously a condom in a wallet.    I still find it somewhat amazing that ABC was willing to release such a daring and perhaps tasteless cover ...  and yes, even tough tasteless, it is included on my list of favorite covers.
