Permanent waves

One of the classical covers of the late seventies/early eighties, Rush' Permanent waves. The cover art concept is by Hugh Syme. It sparked some controversy due to the "Dewey Defeats Truman" headline on the newspaper. Under pressure from the Chicago Tribune, Syme changed the text to "Dewei Defeats Truman". The billboards in the distance were changed from Coca-Cola (who objected to the use of their logo) to include each band members name in similar typestyle. The waving man in the background is cover artist Hugh Syme himself.
