July 5, 1978 - EMI Records pressing plant in Hayes, Middlesex, UK will stop printing the original cover artwork for the Rolling Stones current album “Some Girls” (with the bands’ then US distributor Atlantic Records also following suit). The jacket art designed by graphic artist Peter Corriston features a die cut sleeve with the inner sleeve using pictures of female celebrities such as Lucille Ball, Marilyn Monroe, Farrah Fawcett, Raquel Welch and Judy Garland. Their images have been used without receiving prior permission, and several of them threaten to sue if their likenesses are not removed from the cover. A second version of the cover is hastily prepared, blocking out the offending images with colored blocks that say “PARDON OUR APPEARANCE - COVER UNDER RE-CONSTRUCTION”. This is the way the cover art will appear on all subsequent reissues of the album.
