During the preparation for the release of 'Seven The Ragged Tiger' the band did a photo shoot on the Sydney harbor for the album cover. I seem to recall it being touted as "the most expensive album cover ever" because of something to do with the harbor lights. What is the story behind this, and why did this photo get shuffled to the 'Union of the Snake' cover? Tom
SAYS THE BAND: IT IS COMPLETE POPPYCOCK! THAT SHOOT WAS NOT EXPENSIVE, IN FACT WE WOULD GO AS FAR AS TO USE THE C WORD - CHEAP! IT WAS ACTUALLY ALWAYS DESTINED FOR "UNION OF THE SNAKE." HOWEVER, THERE WAS ANOTHER PHOTO TAKEN IN SYDNEY FOR THE COVER OF THE 3RD ALBUM WHICH PROVED A LITTLE MORE COSTLY - BUT WE BLAME THE TIGER.
AS FOR THE HARBOUR LIGHTS, THEY COME ON AT THE SAME TIME EVERY DAY - IF YOU GO THERE TO TAKE A PHOTO , YOU CAN GO AND CAPTURE THEIR BEAUTY. WE RECOMMEND IT.
