Punk

The punk aesthetic lent itself nicely to the nude cover. Sex, drugs and picnics with bold bolshy women, who'd probably hate all this.

Maybe post all the copies to France?!

Italiana

Italian record labels had few qualms about using a nude album cover to shift product. The prime Italian NV artists were Gil Ventura and Fausto Papetti, who had there sax-based brand of easy-listening sold almost exclusively off the back of nude and erotic album art.

Soul, Funk, Disco & Reggae

Soul, funk, disco and reggae were a set of genres that lent themselves nicely to the nude cover. Soul was sultry, funk flirtatious, disco unashamedly sleazy and reggae always had a little sass to go with its bass.

Trojan marketed their early Tighten Up reggae comps with a series of sexy semi-nude sleeves, while these were preceded by the bolder Pama Straighten Up series.
