"Visually, it's an impactful cover. Plus, no one at the time had ever thought to put such a personal item of theirs on the cover. Sure, we had seen family pics of artists, and pics of them as children, but to use your public assistance card was a glimpse of creative brilliance.
Though this album didn't influence any of the work I've done, it did inspire me to think outside the norm. I'm sure in today's current music climate this kind of album would be impossible to pull off because of all the people who would be saying things like, 'This is clowning our artist' or 'He doesn't look good in this picture.' So for me this will always be on my top ten list."
